    Iris quilt

    Really lovely quilting, Sharon! Your friend did a wonderful job, and it's great that her mother will have a new quilt for her new home.
  2. Thanks, Robin, I will keep that in mind!!!
  3. Robin, this is wonderful! I am going to make a king-sized bargello wedding quilt for our daughter and son-in-law, whenever they decide on colors. They have just moved into a new house, so maybe sooner, rather than later. They looked up bargello quilts on-line, and were surprised to see how many variations there are. (I have one hanging in our house, which was the only way they knew about them.) I will show them your quilt, and maybe the book will have just what they want. Thanks for sharing!!

    Clothesline Quilt

    What a kind and creative way to use those blocks! Your quilting is wonderful, and I love the way the blocks and quilting combine to make a beautiful quilt. Prayers for your friend.
  12. Sharon, I doubt anyone is going "Ya think" over you possibly needing a larger needle for your tee shirt quilt. We all started not knowing a lot. One of the things I really appreciate about this forum is the generosity and understanding of the experienced people toward the newer quilters. I have learned a lot here, and know I still have a lot to learn!
  13. What a lovely quilt! Great job, Vicki!

    Need Lighting advice!!

    Carmen, I know some members have posted that they like side lighting when they are quilting, and others like less, rather than more, light. Here are some threads I found about going this route: Hope this helps!
  15. Glad you were able to resolve the issue. This forum is wonderful for helping each other!
  16. Wow, that is beautiful, and your quilting is perfect for it! No wonder your niece loves it.

    Circle Lord Advice

    Not sure about Circle Lord board differences between machines, but your table size will determine the number of boards you need for each pattern. Call and talk to Michael. He will know exactly what you need for your machine and table.
  18. I use Warm and Natural and Warm and White quite a bit, with no issues. W&W and W&N do have a right side and a wrong side. Bearding can be caused by having the batting wrong side up. This post from 2013 explains it nicely: ffq-lar Advanced Member Member 3,475 10,465 posts LocationOlympia WA Posted October 29, 2013 · Report post If you can tell which way the needle-punching went through the batting, place it so your needle goes through the same way. With Warm and White cotton--dimples up, pimples down. When you hold the batting up with the light shining down, one side will be dimpled. That's where the needles went through. The other side is messier--thus "pimples down". Warm and Natural has the dirty side up. The side with more flecks of debris is the top side. This is problematic if the quilt top has some white fabric used, since the dirt can shadow through. Most wools are the same on both sides so it doesn't matter. Poly batts are the same unless needle punching is prominent--then follow the directions above. 3 Quote Linda Rech Finely Finished Quilts Millennium on Bliss rails--hand-guided http://www.topperquilttools.com
  19. Dell, your beautiful quilting is perfect on this quilt!
  20. What a great team the two of you make! Beautiful work by both of you.
  21. Tracey, I hope one of these options works for you. Please let us know if you find your fabric!
  22. Bobbie, the meandering goes right through the screen printing, not around it. Generally, T-shirt quilts already have so much going on that the quilting design is not all that important to the finished look of the quilt.
  23. Tracey, good luck with your project! Have you tried missingfabrics.com? I think you will reach a wider audience there, and it never hurts to get your message out to as many people as possible.
