    A small wall hanging

    This one was completed by the same friend and she did the angel with Brazilian embroidery. I used so fine on top and a poly blend batting on this one.

  2. this is a wall hanging that a friend of mine did to celebrate Canada's 150. This piece is about 40" across. It was a bit challenging to figure out how to divide it up and then what to do in the areas. I used the geese as an inspiration. She was very pleased.

    This is a friends quilt I quilted for her. It's for her grandson's birthday. The first pic is of it before I started the quilting.

  4. It is important for everyone to know that Dave is the one that posts under DeLoa's username. I am trying to get APQS to take down the profile to prevent further damage to her reputation. Do NOT do business with him. My mom is an honest person that unfortunately gets tied to his messes and doesn't find out about his dealings until someone gets screwed over. She is often left to work day and night to rectify the situations. It is important to note, my brother, David (jr), runs her website and he is very honest as well. You are fine if you go directly through her or the website. They keep th

    This is a design I learned from Myrna Ficken and I'm not sure why but on this one I start on the right side of the quilt. You can change those spikes to feathers as well. I call it bamboo shoots but I guess dragons teeth works too! Here is a diagram on my dry erase board of the pattern. It is a continuous pattern but I don't try to turn a corner with it as I can't get it to come out right.

  6. These were two that I asked for ideas on back in Nov and have finally finished them and gotten them out to their owners....like all of you, the rush of finishing quilts and then getting ready for Christmas has kept me busy....but here they are... The first one is an older top that she wanted finished and since the fabrics were such deep greens and reds (solids) I decided to use a variegated Christmas thread and then just stipple the block backgrounds....she loved it! The second quilt is a gorgeous wool appliqué quilt that the maker was very scared to send to a longarmer, she had always

  7. I am bringing home my first ever long arm machine on Tuesday, a 2013 dealer demo blissed Millenium on a 12' table. I am SO EXCITED! My APQS dealer is 2 hours away from me and I want to be able to jump in right away as soon as she's set up in my studio. What goodies should I buy while I'm in the shop? I know I want to learn to do ruler work, so I'll need the extended base. I do intricate appliqué on my own quilts and would like to be able to ditch around the appliqué with accuracy. Are the micro drive handles the best way to do that, or should I try one of the acrylic needle guide

  8. Hey everyone! I hope you are all having a great weekend! My Poppy Quilt received an honorable mention ribbon at the Desert Quilters of Nevada show last weekend. I never intended for this quilt to go in a show, but what a great experience it was. The story is bittersweet. This was my project when I went to Arizona to help care for my Pop when he had terminal lung cancer. That was in 2004. I couldn't touch it for years. But I finally finished the quilting and showed it at a guild circle meeting. I was "encouraged" to enter it in the show. I'm glad I did because I learned so much! The s

    Ideas anyone?

    Here's a baby quilt I did that has lots of strips. I like to do a wiggly line along the long edges and you can stitch in the ditch on the ends. I would do a feather fill in the light strips or some type of modern fill, whether flowers/pebbles, or leaves, etc. CC in the small squares.

  18. I like the idea of a nice fill to make the flowers and leaves pop out, maybe some geometric lines behind them and then some pretty fill....

  19. I love the way the big green leaves "spin". I would echo with curved lines or do curved leaves in the backgrounds of those blocks to mimic the spinning motion. Carol

  22. They did away with webshots so that must be why the pictures aren't posting any more. I did find another picture of a block I did that had McFeathering in it. The behive sampler had some. There really isn't a right or wrong and eveybodys style will be different. In this one I tried to get some movement to signify the bees buzzing about so there are probably more feathers but really there are no rules. By the way not my idea at all, Jessica Gamez (Sp?) Deloa's daughter has some gorgeous McFeathering and you might search the archives for her samples, I know that was where I first saw it.
