  2. Hello to all, I wanted to let you know that I just sold my 2008 Millenium to a wonderful family in Winston-Salem. I encouraged her to join this forum because you are all so helpful, supportive, encouraging and just plain nice people. I am undecided as to whether I will purchase another longarm. I am thinking about a mid-arm machine, but I'm going to take some time off from quilting for awhile to catch up with the rest of my life! I have truly enjoyed the last four years as a longarmer and benefitted a great deal from everyone on this forum. I certainly hope that Cheryl, the new owner of my Millenium, joins because she seems like a very nice person and is also new to the longarm business. Thanks to all of you!!!! Evelyn

  4. That is such a labor of love and it turned out so nice.
  5. Very impressive. I love bargello but never had the courage to start one. Your quilting is perfect!
  6. Hello all. I wanted to post the quilt that I just finished. It took me over 14 months to make. There's lots of trapunto, embroidery, applique and sparkles on this quilt. I use King Tut, Sulky Sliver and So Fine to quilt it. Had to do quite alot of frogging as well along the way! Hope you like it.... A close up of the center a shot of the inner border stars. the flower has sparkles on it. a close up of another border. Used King Tut for the feathers. I have more photos in my Webshots album, http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/album/582723787jfTTan?vhost=home-and-garden Thanks,
  7. Rita, I used Shiva paintstiks to accent after I dyed painted the background and appliqued the leaves and Monkey. I used various rubbing plates to just get spots of color. I overdid the coloring so I had to throw the whole top in the washer to wash away some of the color. After the quilting was done, I selectively painted some of the quilting spaces with a yellow Marvy paint pen. The monkey faces were printed on the computer. Some of the black leaves are actually black fusible web that I put on top and then quilted to get a kind of transparency look to some of the leaves... Evelyn
  8. Fantastic job! Love the quilt design and most especially the quilting! Perfect...
  9. I wanted to share the wallhanging that I made for the annual meeting of the Richmond Quilt Guild. The theme is Africa and all the chapters were asked to make a small quilt for auction. So I volunteered for our chapter. It was a lot of fun. I hand dyed the background fabric, fused and appliqued all the leaves, monkeeys, grasses, etc. I designed the quilt using EQ7. I did some hand painting and also used decorative threads to highlight some of the leaves/grasses etc. Lots of fun. Made me smile most of the time I was working on it! I have some close up shots on my webshots album: The meeting is late March...Hope it does well. :P
