    Your work is always stunning, Heidi.  I love a feather border with tiny stitching around it. It just makes that feather pop!  The quilting division around the center is just perfect.  Thanks for all the help you've given me over the years, too.

    Thank you for explaining "flanges".  I never heard that term before, thought I was the only one.  Have I said lately how much I love this forum and everyone in it!!!!!!

    You did an outstanding job.  I love the tight crosshatching.  It really make the center pop for me.  Your work really reminds me of a whole cloth project.

    Heidi, your quilting certainly made this quilt Outstanding!!  Your quilting choices are spot on and your execution of the plan perfect!  Way to go!  I would be so hooped without my purple air erasable marker...  Your patience and tenacity exceeds mine without a doubt ;-).

    I am so happy to finally have this quilt done!  It is a friend's quilt and I promised her 1 1/2 years ago that I would quilt it for her.  She started the applique 17 years ago and it included her first block ever done!!!!  Unfortunately this quilt had lots of false starts.  She brought it to me and the backer wasn't big enough so she took it back and hunted for the right backing, muslin is what she wanted to match the front, not so easy!  Finally she brought it back to me and I had planned on starting it before knee surgery but that didn't happen and life got crazy.   
    I have had the design planned since the first time I saw the quilt so that part was easy.  I will NEVER do a quilt again that can't be washed because using white chalk on the muslin was the only option and what a pain to see.  I did have to use a air erasable marker to help a little but I did it very lightly.  I'm glad it is done and I hope my friend likes it as much as I do.

    Terry my preference is to use the blue washout marker or the Sewline pencil in pink or white (won't ever use green again it doesn't come out easily).  I like that it is marked and won't rub off and can easily be seen.  One of my biggest pet peeve about working on customer quilts is they want the detailed quilting but don't want any marks that have to be removed.  You just can't get the precision, well at least I can't, unless it is marked.  I have tried other methods and can get by if needed but it is way too frustrating when I know there is a simple solution.

    Thank you everybody for all the nice comments!  I have tried to like all your comments but you only get so many a day!  Why is that?  I will say that I actually like the old days where people left a comment and we had lots more conversations.  I know we're all busy and I'm as guilty as the next person not to take the time to leave a comment.  I'm trying to be better about that.

    Oh My Goodness Heidi !!  What a beautiful job you did on this quilt.  I love the border and also how you frames all the blocks.  The quilt is beautiful, but the quilting sure made this one.  I'm sure your friend is going to absolutely love this quilt, how could she not.

    A flange is just a piece of fabric folded in half wrong sides together and that is sandwiched between two pieces of fabric.  When the seam is opened the flange is exposed.  It leaves one end not stitched down.  It can really cause issues with puckering and your hopping foot loves to catch on it.

    Heidi, you nailed it.  I love the whole thing,  You are such an inspiration.  I am working on one myself, and hope to have it done as a UFO this year and put it in our 2019 QGShow.  Thank you for sharing.  It is beautiful.
