    Thanks, Heidi! I will continue to pray for Rita, her family and medical staff as well!  I can't help but think the quilt will give Rita an added boost to make her fight to get well. I am sure she gets great comfort knowing she is not alone!

    LisaC reacted to loraquilts in Stupid Mistake   
    Well, have you ever done something so stupid you just wanted to scream?  I did today. 
    I loaded a quilt on the frame and everything was going great.  Of course the design was very intricate, but was turning out beautifully, so I was very pleased.  That was until I discovered my blunder.  I about two thirds of the way through the quilt when I come across the seam where the backing was pieced together.  Guess what!  I put the backing on UPSIDE DOWN.  Yup, the seam was facing the outside of the quilt instead of the batting side.  Ugh. 
    Lucky for me the backing was a batik and you really couldn't tell one side from the other.  I took it apart and then restitched it by hand.  It took forever, but it sure beat the alternative of having to rip out hours of stitching. 
    I should have had a V-8!

    Another fine finish, Libby! Beautiful job! Do you have a circle maker; your circles are perfect and so are your beautiful feathers.

    My favorites are Glide and Sew Fine 50wt. If I want a sheen, I use Glide; if I don't want any shine, I use Sew Fine. I use pre-wound bobbins exclusively; both from Fil-tech (Glide) and from Superior (Super-Bobs).

    LisaC reacted to AnnP in I am too bored   
    Oh girl..... Pain is a terrible thing. I can't imaging what you are going through. But when I don't quilt, I look at youtube as well. It gives great ideas and pointers. I never turn my television on throught the year, except for some NFL because it really has depressed me in the past. I listen to music, or read my Bible. Reading the Bile points to Jesus, and He gives peace, joy and comfort during those Yucky times in our lives. Hope this passes soon for you!

    My friend made this quilt from leftover 30's fabric.  We decided that feathers would look great on this quilt.  80/20 Hobbs batting.  So Fine and BL in the bobbin.

    I am so laughing out loud at myself!  I sewed my block wrong!!  
    It so funny how it stands out easily when put with the other blocks!
    The sad part is if I had wrote on that part not only would I have had more room but it would have looked like I did it on purpose!

    That would be awesome. I was thinking of going, but probably will not make it. To see them hanging in the show would make my day....but it will really make Sheri's day.

    LisaC reacted to Mary Beth in I am too bored   
    I have been down with arthritis in my shoulder and a little fibro flair. Just saying that because I want you to know why I am sitting around. Not that you really care, or that I owe and explanation...so never mind! 
    I am sick of television. I am not doing some fun quilting, piecing or even cleaning the studio, because frankly, my should hurts so bad it is hard to change my clothes. You do not know what you use your arm for until you can't. Thank goodness it is my left arm. There I go again.
    Anyway, I have watched so much stuff on television, Netflix, DVR, yada-yada. So I decided to pull up You Tube on the television and watch videos on quilting studios. Just to get ideas on storage. So this lady is doing a tour of a great studio. She has a 2006 Millie. She said, I don't even know what to do with this, the warranty just ran out, so it is no good any more and who would want it?  What?! See this is why I shouldn't watch television. I am getting bad at is. I shouted at the television and said, "It's still good!!" "Why would you even say that?" She didn't hear me.

    LisaC reacted to LibbyG in Psalm Rose - baby quilt   
    My customer Suzanne made this quilt for her nephew's baby, whose name is Psalm Rose.  She wanted wavy lines and I saw a quilt with bubbles added. For Christmas I bought myself a set of Jamie Wallen's puzzle piece circle rulers and used three of the rulers on this quilt.  I love circles that look like circles!
    Also she has a four year old nephew who loves naming the states and capitals, so she found this US map for him.  So Fine on top and BL in the bobbin.  Hobbs 80/20 batting.

    LisaC reacted to LibbyG in Forever Stars   
    My customer, Jane Decker, likes to design her own quilts.  She designed and paper pieced all the stars on this quilt.  She wanted simple quilting which would make the stars look like they were floating in outer space.  She named the quilt Forever Stars because it took her forever to get it finished.  As usual So Fine in the top and BL in the bobbin.  Hobbs 80/20 batting.

    Deb,
    I've been suggesting a fat quarter in with the card for those that missed out on blocks.  That would give her a little extra stash when she is up to quilting again.

    Vickie, you're right, it is a joy to open each package.  And I love the way your block is also your profile picture!
    Here is a picture of all the blocks I have received so far.  They are not in any particular order, other than I kept multiple blocks from the same person together.  Based on these blocks, this will be a fun project!
    Thanks again to everyone who is participating with prayers and blocks, etc..
