    Robin got a reaction from BonnieJ in Surf Song Bargello   
    Just off my quilt frame this week, "Surf Song" bargello.  From the book Twist and Turn Bargello Quilts by Eileen Wright.  Needed a king size quilt for my bed and instead of adding borders to make a king sized "Surf Song" I kept building the bargello to the edges.  I quilted it with IQ and the panto Ripples by Lorien Quilting.  I will make coordinating batik pillowcases and of course still need to bind the beast!!

    What an absolutely gorgeous quilt, both the piecing and the quilting.  I love the idea of a special quilt for the bed of a resident who has passed away.
    God bless you!

    Just finished my 2nd custom quilt using IQ.  I have had my IQ since July 2016 and have been doing panto's for the most part as that is what I do for customers.  This quilt is called Deck the Halls and it is designed by Claudia's Creations.  I did the redwork with Claudia's machine embroidery CD and I used my stash of Sentiments by Moda for the pieced blocks.  I did all of the quilting with IQ.  I learned so much that my head hurts!!  and I hope I can remember it all by the time I do my next custom quilt. 
    Thanks for looking!

    I think a flower the size of the pink one in the lower left hand corner of your first picture would be a nice size.  Just my humble opinion....

    Just finished my 2nd custom quilt with IQ.  It is Deck the Halls by Claudia's Creations.  The redwork is done with the Deck the Halls machine embroidery CD, The quilting is all done by IQ.  I had this posted in Computer Aided Quilting but Gator thought I should post it here too so more people would see it.  I added IQ in July 2016 and am loving it so far!  I learned so much on this quilt but don't get much time to quilt on my own stuff, and do mostly panto's for customers, so I hope I can retain some of what I learned by the time I get to custom quilt again! 
    Thanks for looking!

    I can't seem to find the quilting motifs that didn't go well, referring to your statement that "some went better than others".  They all look pretty gorgeous to me!!  I only dream of quilting like that!

    Robin reacted to PattyJo in Just finished this one   
    This is a design I learned from Myrna Ficken and I'm not sure why but on this one I start on the right side of the quilt.  You can change those spikes to feathers as well.  I call it bamboo shoots but I guess dragons teeth works too!  Here is a diagram on my dry erase board of the pattern. It is a continuous pattern but I don't try to turn a corner with it as I can't get it to come out right.

    You know I don't have any other addictions other than Diet Coke.  So I could be a lot more expensive than I am!
     
    I really love that new book (oh, I guess I have a quilt book addiction, too), Town Square.  But I controlled myself, I only bought the book and a full panel set and two yards of one of the fabrics in the line, and then I went home and pulled the quilt I want to make from my stash.  We'll see how long I last before I need to get the real line of fabric for the quilt...
     
    Maybe if we all talk each other through our temptations we won't buy so much fabric????

    I've been hyperventilating about my out of control stash lately.  I kind of got out of control with online buying and buying precuts that are too good of a deal to pass up.  Like Mary Beth I have been buying without a plan.   I decided that instead of buying new fabric when I "need a fabric fix"  I will go to my stash and pick something to pet.  I have a lot of really cool stuff in there that I'm still really excited about when I remember that I have it!!   What I really need is time to sew.  I recently got IQ and am really loving it.  I'm getting caught up on customer quilts and very soon I plan to actually piece some of my own quilts again!  Yeah!!!! 
     
    I feel better now that I got that off my chest!!!

    Robin got a reaction from LibbyG in Spring Basket -It's a Winner-And it's BEST OF SHOW   
    Today I mowed literally all day and I took my bath and decided I would see what inspiration I could find on the APQS site.  I was not disappointed again!  I love to find new Libby heirloom quilting pictures to devour after a hard day of work.  Of course I look at the current one which is outstanding...and then I keep going back and back and back through all of the pictures of the gorgeous quilts on her Flickr site.  Amazing!  Thanks for the quilt show again, Libby!  You are so inspiring!
