    My daughter and I just adore this quilt. Everything, and I do mean everything, about it is just fantastic. We love Halloween and a Halloween quilt to support breast cancer awareness is just awesome. Just love it. 
    P.S. I want a bat bra.

    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.

    anniemueller reacted to quiltmonkey in Customer Quilt Problem we can't figure out how to fix   
    The best way to fix this is to remove the outer borders. Then measure the inside length and cut the outer borders to fit the length. Sew the two side borders on by PINNING and easing and sewing very carefully not to stretch. After sewing the borders on the length, measure the width and cut the top and bottom borders to fit. Repeat by sewing the two top and bottom borders on by PINNING and easing and sewing very carefully not to stretch. VIOLA. Problem solved and quilt lays flat and ready for quilting.

    anniemueller reacted to ffq-lar in Needle size/thread snags/unpicking disaster   
    I know this is a heart-breaker.
    I think the snags aren't really snags, but they are dis-placement of the woven threads on heavily printed/top dyed fabric. Thimbleberries fabrics are very prone to this. When the needle enters the fabric it pulls the adjacent thread just enough to nudge it out of place. The white you see on top is the part of the thread that was under the adjacent thread and did not get dyed. Those stripes of light coming down from your edge-stitching in the second photo show this perfectly.
    A smaller needle didn't look like it helped--nor did a new needle.
    With some fabrics you can use a Pigma pen to color in the offending areas.
    This can also happen when piecing--and think how much smaller a DSM needle is compared to the needle we use.
    All I can think to tell you is to warn your customer when you are faced with these fabrics. It won't happen every time. Sorry for your anguish--we want it all to be perfect.

    anniemueller got a reaction from quilterkp in Need a little pep talk - share your stories of starting out!   
    Share what you are doing with your quilting friends.  If you don't have any, now is the best time to make them.  Join a local guild, hang out at your local quilt shop, whatever it takes.
     
    I loved my machine as soon as I got it up and running.  I didn't expect to do many customer quilts, I live in a very small town.  But the quilters here are make a lot of quilts.  I took too many charity quilts at first, for "practice".  Well, I didn't get very many of those quilted before the real customer jobs rolled in.  I've been booked ever since.
     
    I recently decided to not take customer quilts for a while, so I can work on my own projects.  I designed and am piecing my first project just for me that I've done in a very long time.  It feels great.  I look forward to getting it on the long arm and quilting something special on it.
     
    And guess what....I still have a small pile of those charity quilts that I took over 3 years ago!  They are still on my to do list, but without deadlines:-))
