  1. I really like the straight lines you quilted. It gave it some life without taking away from the design.
  2. Oh my goodness this is really an awesome elephant.
  3. This is so beautiful. Your quilting is spectacularly beautiful.

    French Braid

    Let's see if I can get a picture to upload for me. I had the privilege of quilting one and I used a molar feather panto which worked perfectly and the customer loved it. well I can't seem to upload photos anymore. will try later
  6. It is lovely and to them it will be beautiful. For a family treasure such as this, the important things is that it is finished and can now be loved. I do a lot of antique quilts and they are always a "challenge" but I am slowly learning that I don't have to worry as much as I do about it being perfect. You are giving them a piece of their loved one to treasure. And wine and chocolate always help, or so I've been told.

    Right-to-left shredding/looping

    I also have trouble with Glide thread. I know most quilters love it, but I am not one of them. When I do use Glide, I use a thread net over the thread and have marked a spot on my head where to put the tension. I also slow down. It just takes some fiddling with your tension. I know that tension issues like you are having are so frustrating. I can remember wanting to throw my machine out the door, but with the help of the wonderful people her and Myrna Ficken, I was able to conquor the tension beast and you will too. Just take deep breaths and take your time getting it figured out. Keep us informed on your progress because we all want you to be successful with whatever thread you want to use.
  8. Oh my goodness this is simply gorgeous. I love how you combined the feathers and cross hatching.
  9. Beautiful quilt and quilting.
  10. I know Lisa Calle has such rulers.
