  1. Sorry, there isn't a pattern. The piecer took a class from the lady and she developed it, but didn't make a pattern for it.
  2. Good afternoon LibbyG

    Many years ago I took a quilting class for the 12 Days of Christmas wall hanging. Yours turned out beautifully.

    My question is do you have any idea where I can get the pattern and stencils at.  I have moved a few times an it has been lost.

    I would love to make one up-

    thank you

    Quilting advice needed

    I usually google the name of the quilt and hope some quilters have posted pictures of their finished work. I always like the look of quilting 1/4 of an inch around the piece to set them off. Maybe you could put a piece of plastic over it and try that, then something may pop into your mind.

    Finished!!

    Wow, that's bright! Love the quilting. And the fall leaves. We've had so much rain in this part of PA that our leaves are just falling off the trees. They haven't changed colors yet.

    bearding

    Double batting shows the quilting beautifully, but be careful if you use rulers. They have a tendency to catch on the hopping foot because the batting is so thick. For normal quilts one layer is best. Try Dream poly if you don't want pokies. Hobbs 80/20 used to be nicer to use.
  7. What a beautiful memory quilt. That piecing was fabulous and of course, feathers are beautiful.
  8. Wow! They will treasure these quilts. The quilting is just stunning on them.

    Love both of them. Your work is always beautiful.
  12. My customer makes these quilts for her grandchildren. You may remember LUKE , ETHANBURG and MAGGIE TOWN. Jack loves books so she's cut out characters from material. So Fine on top, Bottom Line in the bobbin. Hobbs 80/20.

    Starting Out

    This is my opinion only. There's so much information on you tube that I would spend my money on rulers. I love DeLoa Jones itty bitty for SID and her curved crosshatching rulers, the boomerangs. I use these for ruler work all the time. So many quilters are developing their own rulers, so I wouldn't go buying until you have an idea of the designs you'll love to use. Heidi Merrill posted a quilt with beautiful feather wreaths and I asked her how she got them so perfect. She said she uses stencils. So I bought feather wreath stencils and border stencils in all the different sizes they have. Even though I freehand the feathers, I like having the shapes to use as a guide. I use chalk and pounce them onto the quilt, only white, don't buy the blue chalk. I bought Darlene Epp's formal feather book and absolutely love it! All the designs are right there for me to see. I've also bought DVDs but you have to put them into a machine and watch them. So I wish I would've saved my money and bought the books I could flip through. Darlene retired but Barb Mayfield, APQS rep, bought the rest of her supply, so you might be able to get this book. DeLoa Jones has a longarm feather book and a border patrol book that I use constantly. Simple designs that make a quilt look beautiful. There's a FB site called longarm accessories for sale and you can get good deals on supplies that other longarmers no longer need. Practice drawing the same design 15 minutes a day for two weeks and it should then be in your muscle memory. When you start to use your machine, the designs should flow freely. If you use a practice muslin sheet, use light thread the first time, then use the same piece with darker thread, and finally add another top and keep practicing. Then you can donate it to a shelter. Good luck. I love my Millie.
