  1. What pretty quilting! It looks like you are having fun doing it, it is filled with love. Can't wait to see it finished.
  2. I love quilting applique. I agree with Lisa C, use the pattern in the water fabric as the grid for the clam shells. I mark clam shells around odd shapes, to speed up my quilting. There are some nice big spaces in the green background fabric. Find out if there is something special that your client really likes about this area, or this quilt. You can draw a motif in those big spaces and quilt the filler around the motif, just like you fill around applique. The outer border already has pretty arcs in it, just quilt the outline of the arcs. Fill in with piano keys if it needs it. Fun!
  3. What a fun quilt! Congrats on your love from the judges. You and George are off to a great start.
  4. Your quilt is so pretty. I love scrappy too. And your feathers are fabulous!
  5. Look what I got to quilt! It's a pink themed Halloween quilt, to display at our local hospital during the month of October. Pink because it's breast cancer awareness month. The Jackson Hole Quilt Guild rotates a quilt display every month at our local hospital. The nurses and patients really appreciate it. We've had a hard time in years past trying to find a pink quilt for the October display. So we had the bright idea to make a quilt just for that. Different people made the applique blocks, others sewed them together with sashing and border. I quilted it, and just handed it off to another member to attach the binding. A terrific collaboration. Last May I took a few classes from Judi Madsen in Salt Lake City. I just LOVE her work. So, you will see that she inspired this quilting. The bat bra block is the one that really got me started with the quilt designs. The lady who made it drew a spider in a web on the cleavage, so clever and so easy to quilt that design! Judi had just posted an applique quilt that she'd finished that had bugs in it. She gave the bugs motion by quilting a swirly design under them. I thought the ghosts need that swirly design too. Remember, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?! I used a wool batting, glide thread with magna glide bobbins. Love those magna glide bobbins! Angela Huffman is a great source for them and her delivery is super fast. Thanks for looking!
  6. Wow. That looks like waves in the ocean. Great choice using Ripples. I love it!
  7. That's a beautiful quilt! I love how your quilting enhances the design. Your custom quilting is gorgeous!!
  8. That's so pretty. Much too special to picnic on
  9. I love how the quilting enhances the pieced design. Gorgeous! Great job!
  10. Beautiful quilting! I love how the piano keys in the borders balance with the rectangle SID.
  11. My grandmother gave me my first quilt when I graduated high school. It's scrappy, hand sewn. She gave me another one when I married. I treasure both of them. Part of what I love about them is that I can pick out fabrics she used to make her pantsuits, back in the 60's and 70's! Such memories!! I always thought I'd quilt when I was a little old lady, like Grandma did.. :-))))) ok, now I need to go take pictures of the quilts to post.....
  12. I just loaded a medallion quilt that is not square. Just basting, I started at the top and by the time I worked to the bottom (it's about 60" square) it was a hot mess. I had measured before and knew that the bottom was more narrow, and that the whole thing bows out in the middle in both directions. I should have flipped it and started with the narrow end at the top. Anyway, I re-basted the whole thing starting at the bottom narrow end and worked up. I used my channel locks to keep the most obvious thin borders and outer edges straight in both directions. There will be plenty of fullness to "quilt out", but at least it's starting out square. It took a lot of time. I'd only do it on my own quilts.
  13. Beautiful quilt and quilting! What a lucky young lady who gets to keep this one.
