    Sorry for not responding sooner. Ive been on holiday and the wifi mobile network has been very intermittent. Here is a photo of my quilt. Stunned that it won best in show and first in traditional quilts.

    Thanks Chris xxx. Sorry I missed you at the show. I was all over the place. Lol.
  4. Debbie, no I havent finished my metro medallion quilt, having only made three blocks so far, I suspect it will never get finished. Lol The scalloped binding I learned from Ricky Tims on the quilt show, after being inspired by a quilt by Bethanne Nemish which had a similar treatment.
  5. This was the scalloped binding
  6. The binding is a one inch folded in half binding in the dark teal, which is attached to the aqua binding, which I then sewed to the back of the quilt, and stitched in the ditch on the front. Its the first time using the narrow flange. I had just made a scalloped binding edge on my previous quilt and thought I could also use the method for a straight edge too
  7. The only way i ever have got king tut to be a success was to use a 4.5 needle which I only use for King tut, I rarely use it mind you,

    Ive been using my varifocals but cant quite get the tilt right when doing more intricate quiltimg so I ordered an extracset of close ups (reading) just for quilting
  9. Its been a while since I have been here and youve probably all forgotten me, I have been busy quilting full time now, but thought you might like to see a couple of photos, i have also been playing around with bindings too lately. This is a pattern using the quickcurve ruler

    A table question for the dealers

    What damage does your table have and where?

    A table question for the dealers

    According to the edgerider website the lenni carriages are available again in November 2014 and have been improved in some way, you need to contact one of the dealers.

    Teresa, I have the same black steel table with my Lenni but I have the complete edgerider carriage and wheels which I highly recommend. I think it cost $500 about three years ago. The bliss table was $4000 at that time for Lenni. (Plus shipping and vat to the uk, so I went for the carriage) I hope that they are still available to buy.
  13. I have cube cabinets under my Lenni..
  14. Love that quilt, the colours are great and the quilting is very pretty

    Lovely quilting. I just love that spinning effect you've got going on in the white blocks. Very original.
