  1. A friend pieced this quilt. She only wanted light quilting and flat batting. I used So Fine and Bottom Line. Since I'm not really creative, I googled the animals and looked at their backgrounds.

  2. Love these. That binding is really nice, but I know I would never take the time to do it. lol
  3. Love it. Went to FB but I couldn't see the quilting because the pictures showed too small.
  4. yes, list them with a price, under pictures forum
  5. Adorable. Just think you now have a use for orphan blocks. Just bind them and give them to Bitzie.
  6. Watch out for the sticky lettering on some of the shirts. They would gum my needle and then I'd throw the needle away. But, Barb Mayfield said she just cleans hers in alcohol and reuses it. I have better success with a 4.5 needle with my Millenium.
  7. When I see beautiful pieces like yours, I wonder what quilt could beat them. They're simply gorgeous. Congratulations.
  8. Just stunning, Dell. I wondered why I haven't seen anything from you in awhile even on FB. I know they've changed something that's irritated many of us.
  9. My customer pieced this quilt using a pattern from the book GARDEN STITCHES by Lisa Bongean, Primitive Gatherings. She named the quilt. Because of her unique background, I had some trouble quilting this. She didn't want stippling, just a mixture of feathers and spirals etc. She gave me Warm and Natural and I used So Fine and Bottom Line.

  10. I google the quilt and hope that someone else has already quilted it. If not, I punt!
  11. See, when you're creative you can come up with a beautiful quilting design. This is just wonderful. I love the way you outlined some items inside and then the border design is just genius.
  12. I love making scrappy quilts because I can't stand to keep scraps. But, really, Ann, you can make any quilt look gorgeous, so scrap away.
  13. I'm always amazed at the beautiful patterns the computers can do, but not enough to buy one myself. LOL I love the designs you chose.
  14. I had to laugh when you said you'd figure it out by the end. I'm always doing that. Over halfway through I'll finally find a faster way to do the blocks. Better late than never. You have a lot of work in this one and it shows.
  15. You've done a very creative design with the IQ. Freehanding that would take forever.
  16. That's a lot of quilting for minimal quilting so I hope you were paid for it. I've always liked McT and you've done a beautiful job.
  17. Shana, I'm not surprised you helped her. You've always been a big supporter on the forum. I hope she continues to quilt.
  18. Another beautiful job, Penny. I haven't been getting your posts on FB since they changed their system. You would think they'd go back to the original way since everyone I know is complaining about it.
  19. Even though you didn't put a lot of quilting on this, you chose such beautiful designs that it looks like you did. Thanks for letting me "see" a different way to design.
  20. My customer wanted a fluffy batting with ON RINGO LAKE so I used Hobbs Polydown with Glide 40wt on top and 60wt in the bobbin. Bayside Pantograph. She wanted custom for SIX PACK, which, at first, gave me heart palpitations. Finding just the right quilting designs is difficult for me. The hardest part was trying to figure out the directions for the lines on the tumbling blocks on the edge. For the most part, I had them right, but I did notice there was a pattern when the quilt was off the frame. LOL Oh, well, taking out the wrong directions wouldn't have made the quilt better. So have fun looking for them. I used Hobbs 80/20 since I had so much ruler work with all those seams, and I didn't want to be hopping on my ruler. So Fine on top and Bottom Line in the bottom.

  21. I've noticed on Bethanne's quilt that she doesn't always have the pebbles touching. For some reason, I thought I wasn't allowed to leave space between them, but she does. She also uses other fillers with the pebbles. Every time I see one of her works, I look closely and hope to use her ideas in my next one.
  22. Prayers for your daughter, Eric. It must be a scary time for her. This quilt is stunning! Your color choices are simply beautiful. And...I love the circle around the cross with the straight lines radiating out. Leaving some lines out of the inner circle just makes it look more beautiful.
  23. Both are beautiful quilts. I love the colors and the quilting designs. The baby is precious. I'll babysit for her free.
  24. Too cute! You've done an outstanding job on the quilting, too.
  25. I prefer the forum, but so many quilters have switched to FB. I like design help and it's had to do that on FB.
