    Quilting Heidi got a reaction from RosemaryJ08 in Applique quilt   
    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.

    Quilting Heidi reacted to KathyP in First Quilt on George   
    This is the first quilt I've done on my brand new George sit-down machine.  My daughter and I made the quilt for a customer, so I was a little nervous, but I'm very happy with how it turned out.  I filled the center with a large allover Bear Claw design (learned from a blog post by "A Few Scraps"), then did a curved design in the border using a curved ruler by Accents In Design, in a design I learned from The Quilt Journal on YouTube.  I used SewFine 50 thread in a bright turquoise on the top, and medium gray on the bottom.  It was such a joy to quilt this on George!  Such a step up from quilting on my domestic machine.  Can't wait to start another quilt!

    Quilting Heidi got a reaction from T Row Studio in yikes FLANGES on a quilt   
    I hate them too.  I did find that if you cover them with press and seal you can stitch over them without any issues, just make sure the press and seal is down good.  I think they should be banned.

    Yikees a long armers worst nightmare flanges...... but we came up with a good solution  I just did straight lines parallel to the flanges in an irregular width  easy peasey and it looks great on this quilt.

    Whew, thanks Heidi.  I thought I was the only on who never changed her canvas.  My machine is a 2009 and I do the same as Heidi.  Every now and then I zip them together and give them a spritz of water too.

    Quilting Heidi reacted to Mary Beth in Chris' Quilt   
    Why do I always have a long story behind everything?!
    Here it is. I made this quilt for my ex-husband's cousin's husband. So forget my ex-husband. My friend's names are Chris and Michelle. Michelle was my cousin for 8 years, but has been my friend for 39 years. I was there when Chris and Michelle started dating when they were in high school. After my divorce, Michelle's mom and dad wanted to keep me. I just divorced Randy, not the family. So anyway, Chris has been batting colon cancer for 4 years. This is the same cancer that took my sister's life. I wanted to do something, but up until now all I could think to do was pray for Chris. This week I decided I needed to make him a quilt. Since he is an avid Kansas City Royals fan, it was easy to figure out. I kind of threw something together and use the Circle Lord Egyptian Eye.

    Quilting Heidi reacted to AnnP in Gail's Quilt   
    This a quilt made by a quilter in our guild that just passed away. Her daughter brought in several quilt tops that her Mom made, so I took one and quilted, and binded. Praying this quilt brings her comfort knowing her Mom made it. I put in the label Made by Gail Conner with Love......Quilted with Love by Ann Philbeck

    Quilting Heidi reacted to Jessica Gamez in Anyone know where Dave Jones is?   
    It is important for everyone to know that Dave is the one that posts under DeLoa's username.  I am trying to get APQS to take down the profile to prevent further damage to her reputation.  Do NOT do business with him.  My mom is an honest person that unfortunately gets tied to his messes and doesn't find out about his dealings until someone gets screwed over. She is often left to work day and night to rectify the situations. It is important to note, my brother, David (jr), runs her website and he is very honest as well.  You are fine if you go directly through her or the website.  They keep that separated from my dad. I'm not posting this to cause drama, just a warning to prevent future damage due to dishonest sales. I need to protect my mother and it has gotten to this point. My mom is an incredible person.

    Quilting Heidi got a reaction from Jessica Gamez in FINISHED w/pics added...My Last "Rush" for the Year   
    They did away with webshots so that must be why the pictures aren't posting any more. I did find another picture of a block I did that had McFeathering in it. The behive sampler had some. There really isn't a right or wrong and eveybodys style will be different. In this one I tried to get some movement to signify the bees buzzing about so there are probably more feathers but really there are no rules. By the way not my idea at all, Jessica Gamez (Sp?) Deloa's daughter has some gorgeous McFeathering and you might search the archives for her samples, I know that was where I first saw it.

    This is a friends quilt I quilted for her.  It's for her grandson's birthday. The first pic is of it before I started the quilting.

    This one was completed by the same friend and she did the angel with Brazilian embroidery. I used so fine on top and a poly blend batting on this one.

    Sorry, I don't have any.  I tried my favorite site, www.equilter.com , they had a ton of paisley but not that one.

    Quilting Heidi got a reaction from quilterkp in Needles?   
    I prefer a 3.5 but be careful to go slow if you have Batik on the back too because you can get some needle flex.
