  1. Look what I got to quilt! It's a pink themed Halloween quilt, to display at our local hospital during the month of October. Pink because it's breast cancer awareness month. The Jackson Hole Quilt Guild rotates a quilt display every month at our local hospital. The nurses and patients really appreciate it. We've had a hard time in years past trying to find a pink quilt for the October display. So we had the bright idea to make a quilt just for that. Different people made the applique blocks, others sewed them together with sashing and border. I quilted it, and just handed it off to another member to attach the binding. A terrific collaboration. Last May I took a few classes from Judi Madsen in Salt Lake City. I just LOVE her work. So, you will see that she inspired this quilting. The bat bra block is the one that really got me started with the quilt designs. The lady who made it drew a spider in a web on the cleavage, so clever and so easy to quilt that design! Judi had just posted an applique quilt that she'd finished that had bugs in it. She gave the bugs motion by quilting a swirly design under them. I thought the ghosts need that swirly design too. Remember, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?! I used a wool batting, glide thread with magna glide bobbins. Love those magna glide bobbins! Angela Huffman is a great source for them and her delivery is super fast. Thanks for looking!
  2. My Customer Jan won first place for her Laundry Basket Quilt called Family Tree. she machine button hole stitched it and I did custom quilting edge stitched around the applique then added different fills in each block. I was pleased with how it turned out
  3. Hi. Anyone love their "regular" sewing machine? I would love to hear your recommendations. Obviously I don't need it for quilting...use the longarm for that.... but I am upgrading from my mechanical Bernina 1008 which I LOVE LOVE LOVE! But I want some decorative stitches for applique, an automatic needle threader, knee lift etc. Some of the fun stuff to make life just a tad easier. I don't need embroidery functions but won't rule out a machine if it has that. I have tested out some baby locks and Berninas and they are so much faster and the baby lock so much quieter than what I have. Any suggestions? Any brand? I want to spend the next week or so shopping and testing these at the various dealers in my area. Thanks so much for your help.
  4. Here are two more quilts I finished this week. These are mine. Both are wall hangings. Monday was a very productive day! The first quilt is from a class I took at the guild learning how to make a Bargello quilt. I have been collecting Black, White and Red fabrics to make a large Bargello quilt but after making this little one I might find another use for the black and white fabric. lol The second quilt is an appliqué which I adapted to look like my cat, Indy. He's a Champagne Burmese. The pattern was a Siamese cat with blue eyes and a blue background. Since Indy has gold/green eyes and darker fur I changed the colors of the quilt. Thank you to Vickie Oliver and Judy Ingram for helping with fabric choices on this one. You girls rock!

  5. The pattern name is Tuella & Friends by QP Designs and designed by Colette Belt. Will is Glenna's friend from Australia visiting Houston where her friend Glenna lives. Glenna tutored Will to appliqué while making her granddaughter one. So there are 2 almost identical quilts I finished 2 weeks ago.
  6. ive got a quilt that has blocks that are not square, mismatched sashing seams by over an inch, really wavy borders and the blocks have appliqued flowers. Sashing seam widths vary by an inch, too. Should i do an overall panto or go ahead and customize it with something really quick? My instructions are to do whatever it takes to make it look good. And i have a white backing! Any suggestions?
