  1. Hi, This quilt is the last one pieced by a friend's mother who recently passed away suddenly. I told her I'd quilt it for her but I don't know how it would look best. I do some ruler work & a little free motion if custom is used. I'm not a very experienced custom quilter but I can do swirls, etc. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you, Joan
  2. Good morning, I know someone who would like to contract for someone to make a tree skirt for her out of her mother's wedding gown. It is mostly lace. I piece quilts but am not interested as I'm trying to get some of my own things done. If you're interested, pm me and I can get the two of you together. She knows what goes into making quilts and would pay a fair price. Thanks, Joan
  3. I like it too! I love hot air balloons too. Joan
  4. Congratulations Heidi! What wonderful news. You'll be busy won't you? Joan
  5. What a wonderful keepsake. Imagine if more people were as thoughtful as you. Joan
  6. I have a lot to learn too. I'm not quilting for others now because it just doesn't pay enough and is more stressful than my day job...not that I won't sometime in the future but I have plenty to do with the job, etc, etc. I digress...I love the design and your quilting. I would've never come up with a design like that. Awesome job! Joan
  7. I just love this quilt, Dell. I've wanted to tell you that ever since you posted but I had computer troubles. Beautiful! Joan
  8. I went a year without one trying to not spend the money, but I found that it is worth having one. Just be sure to set it at the recommended starting point according to the brand of machine you have. Joan
  9. This is crazy but I never had this happen until yesterday. It turned out that my tension wasn't tight enough. I was testing it to be sure all was okay and the straight lines were fine but the first circle I did had nests on the bottom. Just the first one though...after that it straightened out. I'm not suggesting that this is your solution since you're so experienced...it's just what happened to me. Joan
  10. You'll have it looking great, either by yourself or with your customer. TEAMWORK!! Joan
  11. I was wondering too but didn't want to ask. Hurry back! Joan
  12. So glad things are progressing in a good way. Hope that continues and the fire is out soon. Joan
  13. This is possibly the prettiest block I've ever seen. Joan
  14. Beautiful as always! Just the right quilting too. Joan
  15. Looks great! I'm piecing a French Braid quilt right now and it looks like I have a design to follow. Joan
  16. Aww, sew cute! Love what you did with this and love the giraffe! Joan
  17. Very beautiful job in piecing and quilting. Congrats! Joan
