Regrets, I have one.....

I have only a single regret in my quilting life. I sold a favorite machine. In 1990 I took my first Free Motion Quilting class and it changed my life! I still have the first quilt and I'm proud of the work. I have come a long way since then. I counted the first 30 quilts I made, then lost track.
