  1. I started making this quilt early last year and finally finished the piecing and quilting. I loved how the quilting designs came together and planned to keep this one for myself but I have someone interested in buying it so not sure where this will end up! Hobbs 80/20 batting and Superior threads quilted on my Freedom with IQ. Ditch work and straight lines are ruler work. Quilting designs are from House of Creations...no affiliation but stitch out beautifully!

    Beautiful quilting! I'm always amazed at how nice the basket weave design looks on a quilt. I'm sure your customer will love it. Cathy

    Beautiful job! The quilt and quilting are amazing. Cathy
  4. What an awesome tribute to your husband and his service. The quilt and quilting are both beautiful. Thanks for sharing! Cathy
  5. Thanks David...I know what you mean about piecing a DWR quilt. I also wanted to make the traditional style pattern and have looked at many pictures, patterns, videos and rulers until finally deciding to start with a metro rings quilt. You still have to do the curved piecing but it's very forgiving which I loved...I'm a big fan of sewing a piece slightly larger and cutting it to size so this was perfect for me:-) Cathy
  6. Thank you! I'm continually amazed at how the quilting changes and enhances the look of a quilt.
  7. Since this is ultimately not my quilt I wasn't quite ready to do everything freehand and that is why I bought my IQ:-) Need to use what I paid for! I did however ditch the rings by hand using a curved ruler. For my own projects I am slowly trying to incorporate more freehand and ruler work. Thanks for looking!
  8. Between work and the holidays I was finally able to get this quilt on and off my frame. It's a commission quilt for a co-worker/friend and thankfully she was not in a hurry. I used quilt designs from House of Creations (they stitched beautifully!) and my Freedom with Intelliquilter. Just need to add the label and off it will go. Cathy
  9. The quilt and quilting are absolutely beautiful! One of the best quilting ideas I've seen for that quilt design. Great job!

    Beautiful quilting on a beautiful quilt...now I remember why I bought that pattern!

    Very pretty and I love the colors!
  12. Yes...piecing took longer than I thought it would when I first decided on this pattern. I had to piece the center of all the flowers first and then lay out where they would be placed so I could determine the color around each block. Thankfully the result was worth the effort!
  13. Thanks for all the nice comments! I learn more and more about my longarm and IQ every time I use it and am inspired by all the other great photos I see. I'm slowly working to gain confidence to do more manual work on my quilts as well. I have a couple smaller pieces that are waiting for me that I'll jump in and start one of these days:-)
  14. 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
  15. I've been watching some YouTube videos recently about the various ways to attach binding to a quilt using the longarm. I've been quilting on a longarm for several years and have never tried this before so I wanted to ask a couple questions to those of you that have done this either for your own quilts or for customers. 1. What technique do you use to attach binding with your longarm? Do you use a ruler or stitch straight reference lines to align the binding or some other technique? 2. Are there quilts you won't use the longarm to stitch the binding on? Lot's of points along the edges? Very uneven borders? Competition or heirloom quilts? 3. Any "gotchas" to watch out for? I'm always open to learning and trying something new so any and all comments would be greatly appreciated! Cathy APQS Freedom & IQ
