  1. This is the next quilt in line for my cutomers grandchild. She changed the layout of Maggie Town because she didn't like the look with the 30's fabric. Maggie's afraid of some animals so she didn't add as many. So Fine on top and Bottom Line in the bobbin. 80/20 Hobbs. I've reposted Ethanburg so you can compare the two quilts.

  2. Love the patterns and quilting on this. I wouldn't use it for a picnic, but I would use it to cover a table.
  3. My customer loved this pattern. She won a charm pack at a local shop and used it in "mommy and me". I did a pantograph on the charm pack part and then swirled around the elephants. Because she used that fluffy material I only did the legs and the ears on the elephant. Hobbs 80/20 with So Fine on top and Bottom Line in the bobbin. After it was quilted I used a dark gray to make the balloon strings. mommy and me (3) by Libby G, on Flickr mommy and me (2) by Libby G, on Flickr mommy and me by Libby G, on Flickr
  4. I love the colors and the panto is just perfect for this.
  5. Love this! It's totally beautiful and I hope you do get to use. Will you put a plastic top over it or just admire it?
  6. Beautiful quilt. Can't imagine the daughter not liking it. Of course, she didn't see it with your beautiful quilting.
  7. You always come up with such cute ideas for quilts. Then you manage to quilt them perfectly. The twins are just adorable. Can't wait for them to start talking.
  8. It's nice to have a judge who understands that the machine quilting is part of the quilt.
  9. Try googling the name of the pattern and see if anyone posted the finished quilted quilt. I like to get ideas that way. Without seeing what someone else has done, I'd quilt a feather wreath in the squares and in the rectangles. Then I'd just cc the little sashing blocks. If you want to spend more time, try putting plastic over the quilt and drawing lines to divide the areas. You may come up with a cute design that way.
  10. Love seeing your work, Ann. That's such a creative way to make a quilt of leftover blocks.
  11. I love it too! It looks like the piecing took forever.
  12. I've met Angela at some quilt shows and she's always very friendly! So glad you're feeling better.
  13. Wow! The quilting designs in the leaves is just stunning!
  14. It doesn't look like you have much of a learning curve. I still can't swirl like that and I've had my machine for 8 years.
  15. My Millenium was a retirement present to myself, too! Best gift I ever received!
  16. Sometimes I can get it to work and other times I'm pulling my hair out! I'm using it up on charity quilts because I can use it in the bobbin, too. But with the L bobbin it runs out in no time. At least I'm getting rid of it. I do love the look of it, though.
  17. Beautiful! What a wonderful idea and it's nice of you to donate your time for others.
  18. Spring Basket has won a total of seven ribbons in our three local shows. Three first places, a viewer's choice, best machine quilting, her guild's favorite quilt, and finally Best of Show.
  19. I always love seeing your work on facebook. Wish I lived closer because your retreat center looks awesome.
