    I broke out in chills when I read this.  I'm so sorry to hear this.  She seemed like such a sweet person but was in so much pain.  Heaven is richer by having her there.
    Thanks for letting us know.

    Hi All,
    I received an email from Rita's daughter today and Rita went to be with the Lord today.  I pray she is at peace and no longer in pain.  Thank you all who participated in making her special quilt.  I know that quilt gave her joy and comfort.  Rita was the first person to help me when I got an old stretched rotary machine.  She was a wealth of knowledge and helped guide me on how to load it and work on the machine.  I was actually able to meet her in person at Camp Mowana.  The one thing that Rita loved most was quilting.  I pray she is in quilting heaven and enjoying every minute.  I also see her be the practical joker, she loved to be silly like that.  
    Himself, Roland, is doing well according to his daughter.

    Oh no. This make me so sad. Rita loved this forum and helping everyone. She always had something to add and was always helpful. I am so sorry that she went through so much illness and know that she is in a better place. I am happy I was able to participate in the quilt project. I pray for Roland, aka Himself. Thank you for letting us know. I have been wondering about her.

    I've been away from this forum for a while - life sometimes gets in the way - but I have still been quilting!  I thought I'd share a few of the beautiful applique quilts that I have had the privilege of quilting over the past few months  - the first one is a Wendy Williams quilt (Urban Owl).  Isn't it bright and cheerful!  Hobbs Wool batting and Superior So-Fine thread

    This applique quilt was my client's first attempt at hand applique.  I think she has the hang of it!  Kim Diehl pattern Late Bloomers; Wonderfil Konfetti thread; Warm and Natural batting.

    Signatures can be added by going into your profile at the top of the page, click on the down arrow next to your name and a menu will show.  Choose Account Settings, and you will see an item marked Signature.  I know there used to be a site that you could create a signature and then copy it in but I don't remember the site information.  I probably created my signature in 2008 or so.  It looks like you have the option to change the text, size and color so you should be able to create an original.

    This is a quilt kit I purchased from Craftsy a couple of years ago that l finally made up and have just finished the quilting on. It will be a Wedding gift to a friend's daughter who was married this week. Our girls started Grade 2 together and they are now early 30's. You can't but wonder where all that time went!
    I learned a few things on this quilt, which is par for the course, especially now that I am quilting on the Lenni. How to handle a vertically pieced backing...make sure you don't miss that batting you use to take up the slack on the rollers, they don't all "fall out". Ask me how I know.  The pattern of the quilt isn't throat size friendly for a Lenni, so lots of rolling ahead and back in those big triangles and I turned the quilt to quilt the last two big feathers and the medium sized ones and found pinning to the leaders didn't require as much extra fabric on the edges to work. Tried some new quilting motifs and some went better than others. All in all, I'm pretty happy with the outcome.
