  2. Yesterday I drove three and a half hours from Chicago to Dubuque to attend a road show and check out the APQS machines. What a great experience that was! They answered questions I hadn't even thought of asking! We had a great time--just me and about 8 women--and got to play on all five of the APQS machines. I went pretty sure I was not going to buy because my local quilt shop had made me a great offer on one of the long arms they carry. After about 5 minutes playing on one machine, I was sure I was NOT buying the machine from my LQS, and had to have an APQS. By the time I quit playing, I had been convinced by the machines themselves that I needed a Millie in my home. Out came the credit card and a deposit was made! If you or anyone you know is considering one of these machines, have them go to a road show first--they made a sweet deal for those of us who came to the road show--free fabric advance system, free quilt glide, and $$$$ off the list price too! Well worth 7 hours in the car! Now I have to wait for my money to come in (I'm waiting for an inheritance to clear and that's buying the machine for me). I have never been a particularly patient person. I'm filling up my time by getting the room ready. I need to move my domestic machine into another area of our house--so I'm putting a new floor down in that room this weekend, and setting that room up as my quilting studio. My Millie will have a studio of her own. Getting all of the "stuff" moved around will help me fill my time (I have to move the elliptical machine and the treadmill to the basement to turn the back room into my sewing space). SO EXCITED!!!!

  4. We recently moved from Florida back to Ohio and I've had time to actually do some long arm quilting on my quilts. I was thrilled that it took a first place at a local quilt show.

  6. Cagey had some great ideas. A black walnut thread (or similar) to do the paw prints would be great. Good luck with this...looks like it is very well pieced.

  8. The plan was to make my daughter a quilt for her Sweet 16. It's a bit late since I had to have foot surgery. I think it was kind of a blessing tho. She did get a car and a huge Sweet 16 Ball. I think the quilt would not have been that big of a deal compared to her car, ball gowns, party and dance with her friends. She will see it when she comes home from school today. I'm excited it's finally finished and she finally gets a new quilt with bright colors she has been asking for. I've not made her another quilt since she was 6. I hope she loves it.

  9. The car, gowns, and dance are all great gifts, but will they still be in her possession 20 or 30 years from now? It's looks fantastic and I'm sure she'll love it.

  20. I drove about 3 1/2 hours to the show in Shipshewana. Put a dexpository on the George. Will be at my ranch after labor day I'm just glad I'm still traveling until then or I would be waiting for the call from the freight company. I also looked at some other machines but was pretty sure I was buying a George. Enjoy. Judy

  21. LHC: I say copy the brown paw prints in the black areas, walking them around the quilt counter clockwise. To make your life easier, I would not break thread between the four toes and the center pad, but have a line from each toe to the center pad. Then a straight line to the next paw print. Followed by an echo line around the paw print and the line connect each one to fill the space. In the inner foliage area, from each corner to the center a leaf print with veins in each leaf. Maybe a large maple leaf. SID around the dark inner brown sections. Then a wide echo to follow the contour of the brown line around the outer picture area. Crosshatch the yellow brown areas. Followed by minimal quilting in the center wolf areas. Maybe some meander with invisible thread to not take away from the image. Cagey

  22. It is gorgeous. You first picture almost looks like a drawing. When you zoom in though, you see all the color of the piecing, and then your quilting pops out. Outstanding. Cagey
