no finishes

I am not getting to much done these days.  I loaded the string quilt up on the frame to get to quilting, but had some real issues with the Juki, I finally just took it to the shop.  They say it is showing signs of wear, still skipping stitches.  While I was there I played with the Babylock Coronet, nice machine 16 inch throat, stitch regulator, sits on a smaller frame.  Then I asked how much $$ about 6000 which isn't bad just can't do it right now.  Been looking around on the internet to find another midarm machine can't decide if that is really what I want need.
if I get another mid arm I would upgrade the carriage another 150.00, stitch regulator 499.00 and then the cost of a machine so around 2000.00.  I will wait on making this decision for the moment.

In the meantime I started two new projects, the first one is this
I had purchased grunge 2 1/2 mini pack added some dark navy blue, and thought about the stars.  I think I like the gray wonky stars better than the white/black ones.

This is the other one.
this month at the LQS they had a clear out sale and on the table were a bunch of scraps you filled a  quart size bag for 6 dollars, i scooped up all the Batiks I could find, this only represents about 1/4 of  the bag.  I separated by value and choose the Curvy Log Cabin for these brights.  I am lucky if I get ten minutes a day in the sewing room during the summer.
I have seen lots of amazing quilts over the past couple of weeks on the Linky Parties. 
ALL of you keep inspiring ME!  Thanks
