Monograms and More

I bought a set of monogram designs on eBay on Sunday and they were in yesterday's mail. I played with them on a piece of scrap fabric, but then I just had to try them out, so I started to put it on the back of my green and white quilt. I had done the first initial and started the next, when I went out to the kitchen to grab a drink. When I came back into the living room, my husband said, there's something wrong with your machine. I ran over and the needle had come loose (which it has done before!) and stuck in the fabric and of course, the machine kept going and ripped a nice hole in the back of my quilt. I was so angry. He was sitting right there - surely he heard it fall out and start to rip! That's what I get for walking away. This machine is pissing me off a bit with the needle randomly falling out, but I'm not sure what to do about it. The needle is up in the slot the whole way up and the screw is as tight as I can get it with my fingers. I have never had it fall out of my other machine. This one, however, it has fallen out of half a dozen times. Anyway. I was able to get it to finish the monogram, although it is imperfect. I thought I could go buy a small patch to put on the back of the letter that ripped. OTHER THAN THAT, it turned out rather well. This is the picture.

This is a really pretty monogram -- can you tell me what company it is from?
