  1. Great quilts Eric! Isn't it fun to sometimes be able to just 'play'... Love the idea of loading the two quilts together. I'm sure that was quite a time saver.
  2. What a great quilt! Love your quilting
  3. Our local quilt guild is hosting their 30th Annual Quilt show this weekend. I was asked if I would like to participate in a 'Bed Turning' event. My daughter and I will be doing a 'generational' display starting with a quilt my mother (her grandmother) made for me when I was about 5 or 6 years old. My mother was a seamstress and made all my clothes and this quilt was made from scraps of fabrics from blouses, dresses, skirts, etc.. that she had made for me. I used to love looking at it and remembering all those outfits. My daughter 'stole' this quilt from me when she moved out as it has special meaning to her as well. When she was little and staying over night at Grandma's, she got to use this quilt and even when it got too small for her (the quilt was designed for a youth bed so it was shorter than a regular twin) she would insist on that quilt! Now her children love the quilt and it's starting to fall apart but isn't that what quilts are for. To be loved and used... Following this quilt will be her first quilt, my first quilt done on my APQS - (this quilt top was completed in 1994 for my daughter and when I had finished piecing she didn't like navy and pink anymore so this top sat as a UFO until 2011). We will move on to various quilts we have both done and have significance to us. We will finish the bed turning with my Farmer's Wife Quilt which I just completed. My daughter had bought the book, I stole it from her... used the fabric she gave me for Christmas one year... so as you can see this is really a joint show for the two of us! Thanks for looking!

    That's a cool idea! Especially when doing a LOT of cross hatching on a quilt. Will have to give this a try sometime... Thanks for sharing

    That is one adorable quilt! LOVE your quilting on it too! What size is this quilt?
  6. Beautiful quilts! Love your quilting on both quilts. And your grandbaby is just sooo cute!
  7. I also prefer the forum. I check into the Facebook Quilt Path group which I really appreciate, but agree that the forum is so much easier to find answers to questions I have. So.... that being said I am sad that quilters are not using the forum for QP.... Just checked the postings on Computer aided quilting and there's been VERY little activity (last posting was December 17th). On the Facebook group they post a lot of pictures of finished projects which are an inspiration to keep figuring out the system! Lots of questions and SO MUCH helpful information! It's a shame that APQS QP owners are not posting on the forum for those who WILL NOT AND DO NOT use Facebook. I have several friends who for personal reasons refuse to use Facebook but wouldn't hesitate to post on a forum such as this. Anyways - that's my 2 cents worth...

    Thanks Libby! I think I did go a bit nuts! I actually started this in September... got scared it was going to turn out horrible but I finally got back to it this week! So glad I did!
  9. Beautiful quilt, I’m voting right now for you!
  10. Finished my ‘alison glass sew Luminary quilt kit by Jamie Swanson’ 42” x55”. I had to chuckle when I showed my son the quilt... he wanted to know where the rest of the quilt was it was an interesting project as the star is created by cutting fabric strips of varying widths, sewing these together in color ways and then cutting those strips into random widths - diagonally and straight, sewing those together and then cutting diamonds and finally sewing the diamonds together. And then hoping you made the correct color selections etc to make sure you got the rainbow effect. it was a fun project
  11. Beautiful quilt and I LOVE your quilting choices on it! Stunning!!
