    Primitive1 reacted to Gail O in Pricing question on quilt   
    Let it go. If you quilted what was requested in the price range you quoted, then you did nothing wrong. (Lovely quilting, by the way)  There could be a boatload of reasons that she has moved on to another quilter; the most likely being that she wants custom quilting for pantograph pricing.

    Shawna,
    Is it called Heartland by P3?  If so, I have that pattern and have made it and would be willing to part with it...it can either be made with a house in the center as a medallion or 12 appliqued blocks....

    Beautiful work Kathy!  I also leave my ruler base on all the time because I mostly do custom work too.

    Hi Shana and Lisa,
    Just now checking back in...I do not crosshatch over applique, I try to sneak over to the next line by stitching very close to the applique, my goal is to make the applique look like it lays on top of the crosshatched background.  I did some mini crosshatching in a few of the acorns but used Lisa Calle's little rulers that work great by the way.  I do use my large 24" ruler to mark the grid with an air erase pen or chalk depending on the darkness of the fabric because I sneak around the appliques that gives me the next line to work on...I do always start at a 45 degree angle in each bottom corner and if the square is square it will end up meeting the upper corners as well, I am working on another one that has rectangular blocks with some crosshatching so the tops don't end up looking like the bottom corners.  But that also allows each block to be the same if they are square so the crosshatching seems to  line up under the sashing too....that's it...that's all there is to it...I always work bottom to top of block so my ruler is on the same side of my hopping foot...

    My customer makes these quilts for her grandchildren.  You may remember LUKE , ETHANBURG and MAGGIE TOWN.  Jack loves books so she's cut out characters from material.  So Fine on top, Bottom Line in the bobbin.  Hobbs 80/20.

    Primitive1 reacted to LibbyG in Dresden Plate   
    My customer pieced this using scraps from her stash.  She gave me a quilting design she found online.  I'd give credit to the quilter, if I knew who designed it.  The borders weren't showing so I used feathers and beadboard.  She used a 1/4 inch inner border and asked me to keep it straight.  Fortunately it was only a lap quilt.  I used So Fine and Bottom Line, my favorite threads when custom quilting.  And Hobbs 80/20.  DeLoa Jones' boomerang really came in handy to circle around the dresden plates.

    Not a really great picture - but it's finally done and gifted to my son for his move-in at school next month.
    Applique center pattern "Majesty" by Gina Reddin Designs, borders are created with 'curved braid' by Victoria Findlay Wolfe. 
    Quilted on my Lenni with SoFine and Aurifil threads, Quilters Dream Wool Batting. All hand-guided - freehand faux McTavishing and some rulers. 
    I've been pantograph quilting for almost 5 years and only started FMQ this year.
    This project stretched me in a LOT of ways - especially as it was for my youngest child as he leaves (1,000+miles) for college!
