    Bonnie in Ok reacted to CindyT in Another Customer Embroidery Bunnies   
    I find myself doing quite a few embroidery quilts lately for some reason.  This cute little bunny quilt is the 2nd one I've done.  I tried to keep it simple, but she wanted it to be used decorately instead of for her grandbaby to actually use it so I could quilt is tighter than I normally would a quilt that will be used by the youngster.  Quarter inch echoing in the blocks, SID around the blocks, something featherish in the outside border and a simple sashing treatment. You know, cute quilts are just fun to quilt!  Thanks for looking.

    Here's the last quilt of the year off the frame. It had lots of fullness issues so I had to heavily quilt it. I also got to use my quiltazoid to make the stars. I also meant to put a star in the middle but I forgot. There's so much fabric under there though that its probably best that I didn't try.

    Bonnie in Ok got a reaction from tootsquilts in Adding Batting to Wavy Quilt Borders   
    Does it not make the border fuller than the rest of the quilt?

    What kind of batting were you using? I will try this when I need to take up excess border fabric. So do just place it where the fullness is or does it go the length of the border?

    Bonnie in Ok reacted to LisaC in Sew Tweet Finally Complete!   
    Sew Tweet, a  pattern by Chitter Chatter Designs. I hand appliqued and embroidered the blocks in 2014; along with completing the top. Finally this year, I free motion quilted it on my Mille. This was a very fun project began by me and Lisa E. in 2014.  It was my first attempt at embroidery; I was so blessed my Mother used to do all my embroidery, but she has since passed away. The blue birds remind of Cinderella birdies!!

    Bonnie in Ok reacted to Marie0722 in I Woolly Love Ewe   
    Once in a while a quilt comes along that is just special. "I Woolly Love Ewe" was one of those, I love the design and the title, and I was thrilled when Wendy asked me to custom quilt it for her. Isn't the black sheep super cute? I am really happy with the way it turned out, and it looks even better now that it is bound and washed. I love the picture Wendy sent me of the finished quilt, the little girl seems to agree with me on the black sheep (I have permission to share this picture online.)

    I did a little experiment at a retreat doing some improv curved piecing. I was using scraps from a fellow retreater
    they were cast off from a judy niemeyer quilt so odd shaped triangles mostly. I made four main clusters of curved pieces then added the putty fabcic to pull the pieces together Once they were sewn together the face emerged. A pleasant surprise. I then quilted it with a contrasting 40 weight thread. This piece was juried into the Canadian NJS that is in Ottawa this week. I did not win a ribbon but I have my quilt hanging with some very impressive quilts. I do not do this kind of quilts and stretched myself artistically to make it. I am pleased with the overall project. This piece is 20" x 20"

    My personal Dinner Plate Dahlia is off the long arm.  I don’t have a computer on my long arm so this was all hand guided.  I am thrilled with the finished quilt

    Here's a customer quilt I did awhile ago. Finally getting around to posting. So-fine thread, QD Blend with 1/2 thickness of wool. I intended to sid but all seams pressed open so I avoided it. Thanks for looking. K

    Quick rail fence for a gift.  I stewed and stewed on the dark, really thought it would show the "rails"..., but no, the light won out.  The whole color/contrast thing still stumps/surprises me.  Stipple and machine binding.

    Bonnie in Ok reacted to Pennyquilts in Dinner Plate Dahlia #2 Martha Penner color way   
    This is the second of three Dinner Plate Dahlia’s that I have quilted.   This one I tried to keep the quilting contemporary. There is no feathering on this quilt.  Unlike the Summer in Cabo quilt with many thread changes.  This quilt I only used the one color of thread.  It was a blue/grey and perfect for this quilt.   Again, there is about 56 hours into the quilting.

    Finished the first of Three Dinner Plate Dahlia’s.  This color way is called “Summer in Cabo”. 
    Although it takes almost 56 hours to quilt they are amazing.  I don’t have a computer on my Millie so they are hand guided Enjoy the photos.  I will post the second of the three in another post.

    Yes, Ron and Sharon are transferring ownership to Patricia Ritter. Ron is still making the boards but has stepped away from order fulfillment personally. The owners of Miracle Chalk have also sold their business to her. She is a force of nature and deserves all the success she has achieved. Surprisingly, both R&S and Miracle Chalk owners are here in Olympia---and members of my quilt guild. I'm rubbing shoulders with quilt legends!
