    Here is the basket quilt I made some time ago. Many may recognize it. I still haven't bound it yet, hopefully soon. More pics at www.ksquiltsandquilting.com . I can get the pics a better size there. QDWool and So-Fine thread. Thanks for looking, K

    SandysSewingsensations reacted to Lemon Tree Tami in Freddie's studio space   
    Mark from APQS spent Tuesday afternoon putting together Freddie for me. It fits just right in our family room. So far we've been having a blast doodling away on the practice muslin. I also discovered that my two dogs, cairn terriers, have no problems whatsoever with the sound. They came in and settled down on the floor nearby and relaxed. Yay! I was afraid that it would be like the vacuum cleaner all over again. They don't stop barking until the vacuuming is all put away in the closet. That would have been unfortunate. Right now I'm not going to put anything extra in the room until we see how it works. My husband is thinking that he'd like a comfy chair in the empty side of the fireplace so that he can be in the room while I'm working away.
     
    My husband has even taken a turn or two doodling away. I think he had fun too. 
     
    Thank you Mark for flying out and putting together Freddie. It was good meeting you. Hope the airline found your tool box.

    SandysSewingsensations reacted to Corey in Chevron & On Modern Quilt   
    My personal quilt, 120 x120. Pattern from Mar/Apr issue of Quilty, designer is Megan Bohr.
    A friend pieced and put together this quilt into super queen size. It took her almost 2 years to finish, last week I tackled another row and attached to make this into King, no borders.
    Yes, I am also a modern quilter, all prints are Denyse Schmidt and grey Kona for alternate blocks.

    SandysSewingsensations reacted to Peachy in First "Custom" Quilt Attempt   
    This is my very first attempt at custom quilting on my Millie. It was all freehand, no marking or rulers (well, because I don't know how to do either...yet). I hope you can see some of the quilting in the photo, but basically, in the cross-stitched blocks, I stippled around everything. In the sashings, I just quilted with curves. The border is just meandered.
    Any and all feedback welcome - positive or negative - I can take it...I really want to learn!

    SandysSewingsensations reacted to chickenscratch in Baby Owl Quilt   
    This is nothing fancy, just a little panel baby quilt. I did it today for a baby shower at work.  I just have to do the binding.  It turned out really cute.  Purple thread on pink backing fabric (my mistake) and color match thread on top. Double layer of low loft polyester

    SandysSewingsensations reacted to Bonnie H in finished a quilt   
    I'm hoping this picture comes through. I'm in the process of switching to a new computer with Windows 7 and had to take both my window pro computers offline thanks to Microsoft discontinuing support.
    Anyway, the is the second quilt I've quilted since having to put my beloved cat to sleep on Earth Day. It's been tough getting back to enjoying anything. Tomorrow is mine and my husband's 18 year anniversary-we got Smokey right after we got married.

    SandysSewingsensations reacted to Enchanted Quilting in Paint Chip Challenge   
    About six months ago, our guild had us draw packets for our paint chip challenge.  I drew yellow, orchid and a dark jade green (one of the pix has the samples on it).  The theme was In the Garden.  I used templates from Judi Madsen's book to do the dragonfly, butterfly and flowers.  I used a double batt, QD Wool and Hobbs, 80/20.  I used So Fine to do the detail work in the yellow. I am happy to say this isn't due until June 12th (which means I will be binding it late on the 11th).
