  1. lucky niece!!! that is beautiful, and the quilting pushing it over the top!
  2. 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.
  3. wow, that is beautiful quilting!
  4. I'm always so inspired by what you do. I really love the feathers in the star points. Never in a million years would have thought of that, and it all looks so amazing.
  5. Oh my I can certainly see why that is winner, congrats! I love the traditional feathers with the modern geometric quilting, really exciting to look at the two together.

    wow congrats! That is some amazingly creative quilting. Stunning
  7. Feathers and baskets

    it is gorgeous! Love how you filled the square with the feathers, perfect.
  8. Congrats!! That is some wonderful quilting you did there, and a gorgeous quilt!
  9. I entered my first local quilt show and got my first blue ribbon so very exciting. Some asked me if I was a professional quilter,and really I want to be in the near future, but what are the qualifications for professional quilter....I'll have to think about that. But while I"m thinking here's the huge mammoth of a quilt that was entered. Me and April (my Millie) quilted her. This is a kings size (117 x 117) quilt, hobbs 80/20 on the bottom, hobbs wool on top. That's one warm cozy quilt on a chilly night. Some ruler work, some free hand feathers and a whole lot of fun. Still can believe I got a blue ribbon. Here's a couple of pics, simple log cabin made out of shot cottons.
  10. Colleen's Japanese Fan Quilt

    wow, how on earth do you come up with such incredible designs that are so different on each quilt. This is stunning. Each time I see one of your JN quilts, I think oh she can't top that. Then you get another and I keep saying that. I'm with Libby, I think this is one of my favorites so far. At least until I see the next
  11. Fall table Runner quilted

    you took a treasure and turned it into an heirloom, wonderful. But I was peeking at what you had hanging in that first picture....do we get to see more of that one?
  12. Paradise in Blooms

    OH my you have outdone yourself this time. Totally amazing. I love the zig zig over the green spikes, so creative. There's no one that can quilt a JN quilt better than you. Stunning!!
  13. Have you created just the right quilt for the right person? Isn't that the most wonderful feeling? Thanks to those here for the wonderful inspriation and to those awesome bliss rails! My goodness I love them. Full story on the quilt, how Kathy inspired me can be found here - http://suedaurio.blogspot.com/2015/09/final-sail-on-black-sea.html
  14. Thanks! They were 17 inch-ish blocks. I put a registration mark at inch 9 and 8 on the seam allowances around the block. I used a ruler from Quilted Pineapple, #20 that was the perfect size for the quilt. It's not really a full circle. Since the blocks were all not quite that even, I thought it would be more noticeable if I did full circles. So I did pretty close to full circles but not quite! Then I just did the quarter inch in. I did this for each diamond shape, so rather than doing circles per block. I did 4 arcs on 4 blocks at a time, that way it was continuous and just traveled down the seam to the next diamond shape.
