    Pink Halloween Quilt

    Look what I got to quilt! It's a pink themed Halloween quilt, to display at our local hospital during the month of October. Pink because it's breast cancer awareness month. The Jackson Hole Quilt Guild rotates a quilt display every month at our local hospital. The nurses and patients really appreciate it. We've had a hard time in years past trying to find a pink quilt for the October display. So we had the bright idea to make a quilt just for that. Different people made the applique blocks, others sewed them together with sashing and border. I quilted it, and just handed it off to another member to attach the binding. A terrific collaboration. Last May I took a few classes from Judi Madsen in Salt Lake City. I just LOVE her work. So, you will see that she inspired this quilting. The bat bra block is the one that really got me started with the quilt designs. The lady who made it drew a spider in a web on the cleavage, so clever and so easy to quilt that design! Judi had just posted an applique quilt that she'd finished that had bugs in it. She gave the bugs motion by quilting a swirly design under them. I thought the ghosts need that swirly design too. Remember, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?! I used a wool batting, glide thread with magna glide bobbins. Love those magna glide bobbins! Angela Huffman is a great source for them and her delivery is super fast. Thanks for looking!

    Here is My latest Collage quilt ready for Squaring and binding This is a Laura Heine Collage pattern called Cactus collage sampler. I shrunk this to 60% of the original size.

    Quilted Vintage Table Linen

    My quilting has been hit or miss lately. Rather than try to make a quilt, I found this vintage table cloth and went to town. I miss spending time with my Millie! I do have to say that I love having quilts on the table. Now I need to find a Christmas poinsettia table cloth! I had no plan for this one other than, I needed to quilt some feathers, I knew it need checkerboard cross hatching and I just needed to do some crazy quilting!!! Just makes me want to do more! I put it on the frame and just got started. Used a little thread in the process. One layer of hobbs 80/20 batting, glide thread on top magna glide in the bobbin. Hand guided with a little ruler work.

    A client had me custom quilt her "Thistle Pod" quilt top for her. She entered it in our county fair and was awarded "Supreme Grand Champion". This entitles the quilt to represent our county at the Pennsylvania State Farm Show in Harrisburg. The judge loved the quilting.

    Surf Song Bargello

    Just off my quilt frame this week, "Surf Song" bargello. From the book Twist and Turn Bargello Quilts by Eileen Wright. Needed a king size quilt for my bed and instead of adding borders to make a king sized "Surf Song" I kept building the bargello to the edges. I quilted it with IQ and the panto Ripples by Lorien Quilting. I will make coordinating batik pillowcases and of course still need to bind the beast!! Robin in MT

    HONOR ABIDES HERE

    The Bedford Historical Society asked our guild to make them a raffle quilt for 2017. I've always wanted to make this quilt since I saw it in McCalls Quilting Magazine a number of years ago. I used Hobbs 80/20 batting, So Fine on top and Bottom Line in the bobbin. I added an extra row to the top and side of the pattern so it would be queen size. It won 2 First Place Awards, a Second Place and best longarm machine quilting in 3 different area quilt shows. Only one judge said she saw shadowing. I did try to press seams open, but it was easier to sew nine patches ironing to one side. How do you try to prevent shadowing?

    Iris quilt

    I had the privilege of quilting this beautiful applique Iris quilt for my neighbour/friend. It has a wonderful story behind it. She made the quilt top back in 1988 for her daughter and as young daughters go, didn't like it once Mom had almost finished the top. So, my friend put it in storage along with the rest of the fabric and backing. Now this summer, her mother is moving from her home to a new condo and my friend felt her mother needed a new quilt for her new home so she dug this out of storage and her mother loved it. She was ready to bring me the quilt and then realized the borders had never been put on so she needed to quickly do that as well and so fortunate that she had kept all the extra fabrics! I had SO much fun quilting this for them. AND another exciting note is that my friend is now eagerly awaiting her very own APQS Millie!! We are going to have so much fun sharing ideas and learning together!

    I have finally finished quilts for Landon and Scarlett. Can you believe they are a year old already? They are such good babies. They both love their quilt and give them kisses and hugs all the time. Lol. Landon likes to pet his giraffe. These quilted up really quickly. My goal was to keep them soft and snuggley.

    Vintage Quilt

    This is a customer quilt that I recently finished. It has been delivered so I can share The top is about 40 years old. She loves vintage pieces. The top is 74X90, with a lot of open space. She didn't want any quilting on the face or arms but said do whatever I wanted with feathers and pebbles. Had fun quilting this one. All quilting is freehand on my Millie. 2 layers of batting, 80/20 on the bottom and wool on the top, SoFine thread. Sorry can only load one picture

    Clothesline Quilt

    I just took this little orphan block quilt off the frame and bound it. I was given several bags of stash and blocks from a lady that passed away several years ago. Her daughter is an acquaintance of mine and recently her husband was killed in an boating accident. I made this for her from the last of her Mom's orphan blocks. More of the story and photos on my blog. http://bunkhousequilts.blogspot.com/2017/07/clothesline-quilt-is-done.html

    Zinnia Garden for my niece

    A recent finish for my great niece's 10th birthday. I've had the fabric for quite a few years thinking it would make a pretty girls quilt and when my niece asked me to make her a quilt I knew what I wanted to use. The pattern is called Zinnia Garden from American Patchwork & Quilting 2017 calendar. My niece loved it and apparently her bedroom is being painted to go with it! Cathy APQS Freedom w/Intelliquilter

    Amazing People

    Last week I changed my needle in my Lenni and accidentally put it in backward. It immediately got hung up and blew a fuse. I used my extra fuse and fixed it. No problems. So today I remembered I needed to order some fuses. I went to the Quilted Joy website because I had had good service from them before. I ordered 6 fuses. My thinking, "I have to order them so get several" and since I am somewhat anal it has to be a round number like a half a dozen, right? The owner of Quilted Joy, Angela Huffman, saw my order and her thinking was "does this lady have a problem?" So she called me to see if my machine was regularly blowing fuses and to see if she could offer help. Yes, she really did do that. I was floored. I did not buy my machine from her. I don't even live in the same state as she does. But she took the time to see if I needed help. I find that amazing and very uplifting. No one does that anymore. APQS has some amazing people representing them and I am glad (even though I am having some thread issues at the moment) I bought an APQS machine. I wanted to be sure to acknowledge her kindness because I think society as a whole is sometimes quicker to complain than to compliment. So thank you Angela. (And yes, I asked her about my thread problem and she told me a few things to check on. How nice is that.) I also want to thank the folks on this forum who are always taking time to offer advice and help whenever I have a question. I was feeling kinda bummed about the problems I am having but I feel better and know that there is support out there. So thank you.

    This is Patsy's quilt. It's a hand pieced that she found on the internet. Sh asked me to quilt it. Thought you would like to see.

    Breaking the rules

    My customer requested "pretty but on a budget". The panto we chose was pretty, but I just couldn't stand how the stars looked. My customer agreed to pay extra for SID around the stars - I love the results!! The SID really didn't take very long, and without all the other work that goes into a custom quilting job, it was budget friendly. This could be my new "in-between" quilting for those who don't want full custom but want something a little better than E2E. Carol

    Here are a few more Collage projects I just finished . I am teaching and have the opportunity to offer this technique through a satelite class hosted by Sharon Blackmore of Love Shack Quilts, if you are interested here is the link ( https://www.loveshackquilts.ca/product-page/terry-s-collage-workshop-satellite ). I will give you preparation videos to be ready for the class on Sept 30th, Then she will video me though out the day with tips on how to get started, cutting tips, eye options, finishing your project to be able to hang it. I encourage to jump out of your box and create a one of a kind project. The videos will be live so you will be able to ask questions as I am being videoed. The videos stay on the facebook page so you will be able to go back and watch them over and over or watch at a later date if you are busy that day. Or if you are in the Airdrie Alberta area I would love to teach you in person. This is a fun and freeing process once you get going you can have a lot of fun.

    Scrappy nine patch

    Every month a group of us meet to quilt at a quilting shop with an attached restaurant. Since it's a day of shopping, sewing and eating, I find it difficult to work on any project that requires me to pay attention. So I've found it's a great time to make a scrappy quilt. I love on point settings and a floating look. So this is my latest project. Sew fine on top and Bottom Line in the bobbin, and Hobbs 80/20. Since I love to quilt feathers and made a large border, I feathered it. I used the pantograph waterworld in the center so it wouldn't compete with the feathers. scrappy nine patch (2) by Libby G, on Flickr scrappy nine patch (3) by Libby G, on Flickr scrappy nine patch by Libby G, on Flickr

    Lavender Rose

    Really enjoying work on a new quilt. This one is for my oldest grand-daughter for Christmas; I hope it will become a keepsake for her. The piecing is done to an Eleanor Burns "Quilt in a Day" (right!) pattern, with a color change from rose to lavender. But I'm very much enjoying doing the quilting. I took a couple of classes from Bethanne Nemesh at QuiltWeek in Paducah, and I'm using her "Nemeshing" fill pattern for the center of the quilt. I'll post more pictures when it's all done.

    This is the quilt I made for my first granddaughter's graduation from the book Bella Bella quilts. It is my version of NON-paper pieced paper piecing. My mind just doesn't work backwards, so I break the pattern down into units and then connect them into the wedge segments. I had my husband cut out plexi template rulers to trim the units. I started this after Easter and it went together pretty quickly. SID the borders and the outside of the Xs. Feathers in the upper purple/teal sections and loops in the bottom ones. The star is from a shirt from each grandpa, the dark from the other grandpa who has been gone a couple years now, the light from one swiped from my husband. The label is inserted into the western snap pocket from the dark shirt with a ribbon and kite from hubby's shirt.
