  1. You might want to try Intelligent Quilting. They are going all digital and are clearing out all paper pantos at 40 percent off.....great deal if you want the paper pantos.
  2. I have lots of favorites depending on the quilt. A new favorite is "abundant feathers" by Three Sisters Fabric. Others that I love are Alfresco, Dragonfly Pond, Feelin Groovy and Splash. Not sure of designers names on these, but if you google them you will find them. Happy quilting!
  3. Just wondering Linda...did that panto take a long time to stitch, it is so full. I just love this quilt!
  4. Great service from Zoltan! I am impressed!
  5. Beautiful quilt and quilting......a treasured gift! Loved the pant so much that I just ordered it!
  6. This is one of the best threads I have read in a long time! I have bee quilting for over 30 years, and long arming for 3 years. I have seen many, many quilts in my day....Gone to lots of quilt shows and admired beautiful work. I have never ever checked out someone's quilt to make sure the backing is straight! Some ladies bring me quilts that have 5 seams in their backing fabric, I do the best I can and they keep coming back. Please don't pay someone to unquilt her quilt, you have done more than enough! I believe that you are a very caring and conscientious quilter....and there are some
  7. This is such a lovely fresh quilt. I love the colors and the quilting just takes it over the top, beautifully done Heidi!
  8. And as I type this my IQ should be delivered tomorrow as well! Very excited! I have quilts that I have been saving so that I can play with IQ on them.
  9. Congratulations Monika! I am really happy for you. I have one on order as well, expecting it very shortly....this is something like having a baby...the time seems to go so slow! You and I are going to have to get together one of these days and share ideas!
  10. Willow leaf studio is my favorite place to order. Canada post should be up and running tomorrow!
  11. Those look so great..it is so nice to "see at a glance" what colors you have. I'd skip dinner and a movie to have those beauties!
  12. Fantastic job! I have a feeling there are going to be lots of people laying claim to your lovely quilts!
  13. The other day I was chatting with a LAer friend and she told me she changes her needle with every quilt. I was quite surprised because I probably change mine every 4 or 5 quilts. I am wondering what the rest of you do? Perhaps I am really using dull needles by the time I change them. Thanks for your input!
  14. This is so lovely, your customer will be so pleased.....you always quilt with that extra special touch!
  15. My DH installed my new M & M wheels last week. All I can say is wow! I hesitated on purchasing them wondering if I would see a difference..... but now I feel like I am controlling the machine and the machine doesn't control me. Pantos seem like so much more fun to do with the new wheels. I also had been struggling with a lot of shoulder issues, but haven't had any problems using the new wheels. Love, love, love them!
  16. Monika, that is over the top beautiful! Well done!!!
  17. A real knock-out! wow....so lovely, the back looks just amazing!!! Your skills are way beyond where you think they are!! I think I need to make one of those burgoyne surrounded quilts!! That is a winner!! Helen
  18. This is in a class of its own! What an heirloom!!! Absolutely beautiful!!!! Helen
  19. Darling! He will bring your family much laughter and joy! And what a special name!!
  20. HI Monika and Kathy!!! Good to talk to you both! My first plan is to trade them for King Tut....if that doesn't happen I am open to selling them. There seems to be so many people that buy king tut and don't like it that I thought there must be somebody out there who is willing to trade. I will keep you posted.
  21. I must be the odd ball on the forum, because I LOVE king tut thread. I have about 26 (new) cones of So Fine that I am not that fond of. The colors range anywhere from neutrals, to golds, browns and blues. Would anyone like to make a trade--your king tut for my So Fine? I live in Canada, so that might be a factor for postage costs. Looking forward to your replies. Thanks, Helen
