  1. Ann, I actually "borrow" ideas from other quilters. I saw a post on another forum by a Barb in Buffalo where she used the wavy lines with the circles vertically on an ocean quilt. When my customer wanted wavy lines, I thought the circles would really add a nice visual effect to the quilt. It also gave me an opportunity to use Jamie Wallen's circle rulers. You actually take them apart and "piece" then around your hopping foot. Really easy to use. Then I googled images of elephants and found a pink one that was quilted. It didn't have the flower and bird, but I liked the quilting on it. I'll tell Suzanne you loved her rendition. Thank you.
  2. My customer Suzanne made this quilt for her nephew's baby, whose name is Psalm Rose. She wanted wavy lines and I saw a quilt with bubbles added. For Christmas I bought myself a set of Jamie Wallen's puzzle piece circle rulers and used three of the rulers on this quilt. I love circles that look like circles! Also she has a four year old nephew who loves naming the states and capitals, so she found this US map for him. So Fine on top and BL in the bobbin. Hobbs 80/20 batting.

  3. Congratulations. That crosshatching looks beautiful and I know it's time consuming.
  4. Connie, I love it when members remind me of designs I have but haven't looked at in awhile. I'll have to remember that border.
  5. There was a post on the comparison of the two systems awhile back. You might search in the topic section. I remember reading that the IQ was better, but not why. Hope this helps.
  6. What a wonderful memory quilt! If you posted it already, getting older means we forgot you did. So it's new eye candy for us. I love how you made the inner white the same curve as the outer border. So many interesting parts of this quilt.
  7. Dell, Are you posting to the guild account because I can never see your quilts on flickr. I like to see the quilting and I need closeups. So how can I get access to your flickr account??
  8. My customer, Jane Decker, likes to design her own quilts. She designed and paper pieced all the stars on this quilt. She wanted simple quilting which would make the stars look like they were floating in outer space. She named the quilt Forever Stars because it took her forever to get it finished. As usual So Fine in the top and BL in the bobbin. Hobbs 80/20 batting.

  9. Kathy, God has blessed you with an exceptional degree of creativity. Thanks for the link to the stunning quilt. If I was from Canada, I'd have you make one for me. Those placemats are just stunning. I hope your son uses them and realizes what a special mother he has.
  10. Terry, I'll make four blocks. Rita's always been kind to me.
  11. My customer makes a quilt for each of her grandchildren. She used the same design for Ethan's quilt as she used for Luke's. The material changes a bit, but essentially it's the same. Grandma's house is there, the church, etc. Everything has a reason. Her next quilt will be a winter one because that child was born in December. Can't wait until she fnishes it.

  12. David, bless you. That's such a wonderful idea having everyone pray over the quilt. With all the negativity in the country right now, it's nice to see someone thinking of others. Seeing the joy in someone's eyes is priceless. Thank you for reminding us why we love to quilt.
  13. This is the fanciest Olaf quilt I've seen. I love the pebbles on him and the design on the face. Some people got it, and some don't! Unfortunately I'm in the don't category, but I'm blessed to be able to "borrow" from other quilters. The border design is to die for. I just love it!
  14. You seem to have a natural talent for quilting animals. I'd love to see closeups of each panel block.
  15. I just quilted one for a customer and used a panto. This quilt is so busy, but you've done a wonderful job finding a quilt path. The back looks awesome. I like to go out of the box on my quilts. It's a wonderful way to try new designs. I have DeLoa Jones boomerangs. The pineapple rulers are practically identical to Deloa's.
