    I'm hoping to get this into a show at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles .... it's for an exhibit of Modern Amish with examples of real Amish quilts from Ohio alongside modern versions made by the local Modern Quilt Guilds and is curated by Joe Cunningham.

    Wish me luck!

    Lemon Tree Tami reacted to delld in I'm a happy quilter again!!   
    A couple of weeks ago my Millie started dragging and today it was awful!!!! My favorite APQS dealer ordered my new wheels and they were shipped out yesterday. But it was terrible!!!! So I got my old edgeriders out and dear sweet hubby replaced the three dragging wheels. I'm in heaven again and my new M&M wheel will be waiting for me when I get to Orlando for classes with Claudia Phiel!!!!!

    Lemon Tree Tami reacted to Bliss Quilter in Miss Millie - To arrive Tuesday   
    Miss Millie will arrive next week via Dave Jones (Thanks Dave). I am so excited I can hardly focus on my DAY job. Deloa & Dave Jones had a deal on Miss MIllie I could not resist.
     
    It all started when I though I was going to be laid off from my day job and thought I would start retirement early. Deloa & Dave Jones sold FUNNY FACE (My Nolting) and will pick her up to go to a loving home in Iowa when Dave delivers Miss Millie.
     
    I had a talk with FF and she promised she would love her NEW MOTHER and called me a trader . Well I made the cut and will not be laid off (darn it)  . Now I have to really show Miss Millie a lot of extra attention at night and weekends. 
     
    I had to make room in our living room and I have placed extra furniture where Miss Millie will be living to get the feel  (Pictures next week).   
     
    I have been working on my website (still in the works) and some marketing so when Miss Millie arrives  I can give her all of my attention. When I have all up an going PROFESSIONALLY I will let everyone know. I have the preliminary up, I am eager to listen your suggestions,  send me an email.  Please do not post them here. 
     
    I want to thank all who have posted here for the last 4 years, I have learned so much from you all.  That is why I purchased Miss Millie and Bliss Quilter is here. 
     
    More to follow when Miss Millie arrives!

    Lemon Tree Tami reacted to Oma in Buggy Barn Chicks finished   
    I think I'm going to call this one "The Ladies" and give it to Steve and Grace.  The Wonky Square CL board looked great on it.  It's one of the smaller quilts I've made, but it's perfect for snuggling under to watch tv and will be perfect considering they will be staying in a hotel until they can rebuild or decide to do otherwise.  I'm going to make them a couple more bowl holders to show them a lot of stuff can be replaced.  They loved the first ones I made them and I have the exact bowls and fabric I used for those. 
     
    Oh I used Quilter's Dream batting in this one and it is really nice to work with.  I doubled it because I thought it was a bit thin in one layer.

    Oh Linda!  Congratulations!  There's nothing like having every day be Friday at 5:00!  Of course, there are those crazy people who retire and then go back to work three years later (me).  Hopefully, you won't have to do that.  I'm building enough cushion now that should I run out of employment (it's actually fun with no responsibilities and I found I actually missed people), I won't need to go back to work.  It also helps that my machine is finally fixed, so I can quilt for a living again!
     
    Enjoy it all.  The world's your oyster!

    I sit here with my coffee on the first day of my retirement from my day job. The feeling is wonderful!
     
    My calendar for the next few months is full of fun---a trip to Disneyland with my sister, guild volunteering, Moxies at my house, the local Arts Walk, the list goes on. On the business side, for the first time in six months I will be caught up on my monthly quilt quota. I try for 6 quilts a month and I've been one quilt behind every month for a while!  I'm busier than ever and need to get better organized--as usual--so I can pencil in some piecing and retreats!
     
    I was treated to a tear-producing farewell at work. They called former co-workers who I haven't seen for years to come to a get together after my last shift. The people are what I will miss the most!
     
    My job provided me with good pay, great benefits, nice people to work with, and allowed me to have the $$ and time to following a modest dream. For that I'll always be thankful. But I'm glad to move on.
     
    Let the fun begin!!

    Lemon Tree Tami got a reaction from RoseCity Quilter in Elephant quilt, Knot a Rainbow quilt, and a disaster   
    Well I happily quilted two client quilts. Can I say that I just say that I love my APQS/IQ combo. Both of them quilted wonderfully and had no problems at all. I used the New Delhi panto on the elephant quilt and Modern Serpentine on the modern Knot a Rainbow quilt. 
     
    Now sadly I'm having to mail back the peacock quilt to its owner. I was able to figure out how to do a no-sew zone on a muslin quilt so I wouldn't have had any problems with the applique center. The problems were that unbeknownst to me at the time were that the outer two borders have 3-D elements. The diamonds have flaps and the dark blue/blue second to last border is doubled fabric that is tacked down at the centers with flaps. Yikes! I did try to load it but I broke my needle two times in a row just trying to baste it. The backing is comprised of lots of vertical strips of fabric. They were pieced to the exact size of the quilt top and then had borders pieced to it to give me the extra inches I needed for the frame. I guess that the plan was to snip these off when I returned the quilt to her. Sadly it meant that I had a thick seam right where I needed to baste the quilt.
     
    I feel so bad that I couldn't quilt it for her but didn't want to rip her quilt top each time my needle got stuck (nor wanted my machine to get knocked out of time). As it is, I'm desperate to get a muslin quilt on the frame to test it out. Fingers crossed that it's okay.
     
    The good thing is that the next quilt that I'm picking up next week is a straight forward panto and a simple pieced quilt. Nothing like diving into the deep end, no?

    The peacock quilt would be a nightmare to quilt...and not even that fun to piece!!  Love the elephants:)

    I have some local longarmers that I refer clients to when they desire quilting that is above my skill set or physical abilities. I would rather send them somewhere else than do a bad job. You did the right thing.
