  1. Hey Fellow Longarmers! I've been MIA for some time now, but Still Quilting! I've had a couple of grandbabies, family members' illnesses and deaths, and you know...life in general. I have also been cleaning and decluttering my quilt quilting studio. I have a Quilt Topper Tool circle maker with a star board and two feather wreath boards that I would love to part with. The base fits a Milli machine. It's yours for the cost of shipping. I bought it used when I first started quilting, but do mostly heirloom custom quilting and don't and won't use it. Please take this off my hands, or should I say, out of my studio. Have a great day! Debbie
  2. Wow! I bet it will win a ribbon. Just enter it into a few more shows!
  3. Fabulous Quilt! I usually enjoy quilting these because I know I will never piece one for myself. I applaud your ability to do both...piece and quilt.
  4. Yes, I have a millie. I used it once when I first started quilting, but I do mostly custom heirloom quilting, and it's just been sitting in my quilting studio. I will sell it cheap!
  5. Hello Everyone! I'm still quilting and been so busy I haven't been on the forum in quite a while. I still have this Topper tool for sale. I've been cleaning my studio and would like to find a home for this. Please let me know if you're interested. Thanks, Debbie
  6. Vicki, I made some freezer paper templates and used Shiva Paint Sticks to stencil the Hawaiian motifs. I'm not very good at applique and don't have the time to do it. I had worked up a program /workshop for our guild using this technique.
  7. Fantastic! I too love the way you pieced the tshirts into the squares without the typical sashed look!
  8. Beautiful! I'm guessing this is raw edge applique or "collaging". Your sunflower petals look soft and not stiff. I like that.
  9. It's been a while since I posted. Here are some customer quilts I had the privilege to work on. The Hawaiian quilt is one that I made for a guild program I came up with "Faux Hawaiian Quilts". Unfortunately I put a couple in twice and can't figure out how to delete from the post. If you go to my flickr account you can see a few more pics of customer quilts. I had removed most of my photos several months ago when I'd read that flickr had been taken over by someone else and we wouldn't "Own" our photos anymore. Well, I just uploaded to flickr a few of what I've quilted recently. Hope you enjoy the eye candy. Thankfully I'm a better quilter than photographer. this is a memory quilt I made for a friend from some of her mother's clothing https://www.flickr.com/photos/foreverdesigning/30522708758/in/dateposted-public/
  10. Is the intellistitch just an add on stitch regulator or is this a computer guided machine. A friend of mine is wanting to buy a longarm when she retires, but this might be too good of a deal to pass up.
  11. Well, that's a shame! I've used Hobb's wool on several quilts I've made and dried them in the dryer on medium/high heat. I probably used one dryer sheet on a full size quilt. The quilt was dark brown and dark red Moda prints and I didn't experience any bearding. Since this was the exception it would have been nice of them to at least refund the cost of the batting, if not the cost of the fabric for the quilt too.
  12. I think those feather wreaths would have been difficult to see had they been stitched in matching thread. Great job on both!
  13. This happened recently in a town close to where I live. The sister of the deceased quilter went to several quilt guild meetings and set things up. She had it organized into tubs based on color, or theme, and fatquarters. I think some of the fabric was $4 or 5/yard and was nice quality quilt shop fabric. That was one of our guild's "programs", because everyone loves shopping for bargains. Lin...so sorry to hear about your diagnosis. Hopefully things will work out well for you.
  14. I agree that the quality of the photo isn't great, but I can still see your quilting. An astute quilt judge and anyone who makes quilts for that matter, should be able to tell that the quilt had been washed. That's one of the pitfalls of quilting for others. Once the quilt leaves your possession, you have no control over how it is cared for. I think your quilting still looks great though.
  15. Beautiful quilt and quilting. I like that motif...not quite feathers, but more like flower petals.
  16. The fabric is some sort of fairy frost type tone on tone....very opulent looking fabric. I quilted pebbles in the background of each of the blocks.
  17. Here are a few pics of some recent quilts. My customer did a fabulous job piecing a Cleopatra's fan quilt. I used Hobb's wool batting and Metro Pro thread. I stitched the same design in each block, but in some the thread blends too well and you can't see the quilting. The narrow brown border has a leaf type feather and the outer border is curved crosshatching. My photographing ability leaves a lot to be desired. The pinwheel quilt was made by my daughter (pictured) for the woman who has kept her baby for a few hours each week. Yes, that's my first grandbaby, Raylee Grace. All quilting stops when she's around.
