  1. I really like the straight lines you quilted. It gave it some life without taking away from the design.
  2. This is so beautiful. Your quilting is spectacularly beautiful.
  3. Okay, it has been awhile since I have uploaded any photos and now it says something is wrong, can anyone give me any tips?
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. What a beautiful job of quilting on this quilt.
  8. Congratulations Heidi. No surprise it won ribbons, the quilting is absolutely gorgeous!!!
  9. Oh my that is beyond beautiful!! I wouldn't change anything either.
  10. Welcome to our family and I sure like how you have jumped in and are learning new things. You are doing a great job!!
  11. Oma, my package is here and I am sorry I didn't let you know sooner. Life has been upside down. I love all the fabrics and can hardly wait to find time to get started on the idea in my head. Thank you for doing this and thanks to all of you in my group for the beautiful fabrics you sent.
  12. I say go for it. I think that is a very fun and unusual quilt.
  13. I would put more quilting in the white area too. It is going to be a treasure for them forever.
  14. David can you post a picture of your light please. I am intrigued.
