  1. Indeed, Penny, that is an honor. Congratulations.
  2. Luminary

    That's really cute. When I was reading the description, my thoughts were that you must be nuts, but the finished project is beautiful.
  3. I love your qult. I voted for it.
  4. Kathy, I've seen your work. It would be awesome!
  5. Freehand. I don't have a computerized system. Bethanne's nemeshing just makes a quilt look beautiful. It's really easy to do, just time consuming. I'm not a fast quilter and this took me over 50 hours. It was around 113 by 90.
  6. Kathy, I just love seeing your work. Your creativity amazes me! I love the pattern and the quilting. How long did it take you to quilt this?
  7. I'm always envious when I see a beautiful design and realize that it was computer generated. But, this one, I can freehand. Thank you for posting.
  8. Christmas runner

    I love the piecing on this table runner, the colors and the cross quilting.
  9. Love those tablerunners! It took me a minute to figure out those weren't lobsters on the tree skirt. But, I did get it.
  10. Wow! Those two blue ones just jumped out for me. Can you tell it's my favorite color?
  11. For His Service

    Thank him for his service, Penny. I always love seeing your work. The crosshatching with the loops on top is so cute.
  12. Originally my customer wanted three designs for this quilt. One in the center, another one around that, and then a different one around that. However, because of the design ( four petals in one juncture, and eight in another) they were turning as I moved around the blocks, and they didn't look right. Then she said just to do Nemeshing. I knew that would be boring, so I asked Bethanne Nemesh for her help. In two minutes, you have to love creative geniuses, she sent me three designs. I actually chose the easiest one for me to quilt. At the 8 petals I rotated the Nemeshing off the center point. Then Bethanne suggested a basketweave for the other spaces. My customer didn't want me to mark the quilt with a blue marker, so I used a hera marker and a ruler and tried to eyeball the weave. I used one layer of wool batting and over one and 1/2 cones of bottom line.

  13. Coming back!

    Love the quilts. The straight line quilting is beautiful.
  14. Flatlining

    No, it isn't going to come out. After a quilt is off the frame, the thread settles and it may not look the same. Just go with the flow.
  15. Squaring Up Wonky Quilt

    I've had similar situations happen to me. When it happens again, measure it while they're there. I find that piecers don't always believe their work isn't good. You could always give them your cutting board and rotary cutter and tell them to do it. Many longarmers do not trim for their customers. I do, but I tell them to be sure to square their corners before they bind. It isn't my job to make sure their quilt is square. As a longarmer I try to keep a quilt square, but there's only so much you can do with poor piecing. Write everything down and have them sign it. That way you're covered. When I first started quilting, I actually took off borders and never said anything because I didn't want my quilting to look bad. Now I just tell them, you're going to have pleats.
