I didn't realize you were quilting with an antique 15-21. Do you have a post somewhere that talks about that (electrifying it, mounting it, etc.)? (I realize I could have missed of it because of lack of time and connectivity for reading lately.)

I really like the way the diamonds are off center. That's a wonderful touch. How did you mount your machine to a long arm quilting frame? That sounds brilliant!
