  1. oh my - stunning!! Your customer was right to give you the opportunity to quilt it - and you did an amazing job!
  2. Love this, Terry - I hope we can get that collage quilt together with the Calgary LA group . . . you are so amazingly talented!
  3. This applique quilt was my client's first attempt at hand applique. I think she has the hang of it! Kim Diehl pattern Late Bloomers; Wonderfil Konfetti thread; Warm and Natural batting.
  4. This one is called Prairie Flowers (I think) by Jo Morton. All beautifully hand appliqued! I outlined around each of those applique elements - lots of time but worth it (IMHO)! The piecer wanted to keep a traditional feel, so she chose Quilters Dream 70/30 batting; Superior So-Fine thread - she was thrilled at the outcome!
  5. I've been away from this forum for a while - life sometimes gets in the way - but I have still been quilting! I thought I'd share a few of the beautiful applique quilts that I have had the privilege of quilting over the past few months - the first one is a Wendy Williams quilt (Urban Owl). Isn't it bright and cheerful! Hobbs Wool batting and Superior So-Fine thread
  6. WOW! Your quilting is perfect on this quilt - beautiful job! I'm sure it will be loved by the happy couple!
  7. Two of my favorite patterns - wonderful quiliting on these. Congrats on the recognition of great work.
  8. You sure have been doing some amazing work lately, Terry! I'm hoping to meet you in person one of these days.
  9. I love this quilt - I really like the straight line quilting with all those feathers - and beautiful feathers, I might add.
  10. ‚ÄčOh my Gosh is an understatement! Beautiful job, Terry! I am doing the 365 day Challenge - another symptom of quilter insanity - LOL
  11. Thanks for all the positive comments - like I said - it really was my most ambitious quilting job so far! Virginia - I used two layers of batting - Hobbs 80/20 and Hobbs Wool; Glide thread. Thanks again - Bev
  12. I love everything about this, Ardelle! I bought the book at your shop a few years ago . . . guess I better get at it now! You've given me inspiration!
  13. Thanks, Jeanne - it was a lot of work but worth it! I agree with you about the weight of the quilt. After I finished and took it off the frame I realized how heavy it was. I love the definition for quilting, but I really think it's heavy. I have another big one to do for my daughter and will only use one layer of wool.
  14. Every time I see this I am just amazed! Such a stunning quilt and the quilting . . . what can I say??
  15. Oh, my . . . this is beautiful!!! Wonderful job . . . I may have to look into that course!
  16. So special, Sheila . . . you did a GREAT!!!! job on this! I know you'll treasure it forever . . . Bev
  17. I finally put my Swoon quilt (Thimble Blossoms) on Freeda - my most ambitious quilting to date Continuous Curves in the swoon block; Curved crosshatching and feathers in white areas . . . I used the leftovers from making all those HSTs to make a pinwheel border. I used two layers of batting - Hobbs Wool on top; Hobbs 80/20 underneath; Glide thread; Lisa Calle's ProEcho Rulers.
  18. OK - I'll be right over to see this in person! Such amazing quilting . . . and everyone, did you know Andrea is published in Modern Quilts Unlimited (did I let the cat out of the bag?)
  19. This is a different quilt - made with a selection of Vintage Hankies . . . my customer had most of them, and shared a few stories about some of them. She is adding vintage buttons to the flap of each hankie, and in the center of the pinwheels. This quilt is going to be a gift to her granddaughter when she graduates next year. Quilting was freehand swirls and flowers in the sashings and border, cross-hatching in the hankies and swirls around the hankies.
