  3. That dress is beautiful xxx Congratulations and those ruffles are spectacular
  4. Wow! That is amazing for your first attempt and amazing for any attempt it looks like a picture of a real rose congratulations!!!!
  5. I use signature top and bottom and love it, I've not had any problems. It may be just a tension issue? Sorry I can't be of more help
  6. I think it will be hard to find a set used as once you have them there really isn't a need to replace then unless you change the size of your table, or you don't like them.... After using my leadergrips I would not want to part with them lol!!! Good luck with your search though a full set of leadergrips for 3 leaders on my 12 ft table only came to just under $80 I think, red snappers are cheaper and if you float your tops you can get away without having to purchase all three which makes it cheaper too. IMHO they are SO worth it .... I had pins first, then zippers and when I got my Millie I treated myself to leadergrips and would not go back :)
  7. I always was and dry my quilts, it makes a difference to me in the presentation. That quilt is beautiful
  8. I have leadergrips and love them, I sewed measuring tapes just above my casings on all three leaders gaming out from the center, and that way you can just note which inch marking you lined up your quilt with xxxx
  9. yep thats the one I had it on the frame, and have done a swirl with feather for the top and bottom borders, SID to outline stars and define the light/dark crosses, and added some "petals" inside the stars, then I took it off the frame to turn it to do the other two borders and will feather inside the crosses ... will post some in progress pics and then some completed ones when its done but it won't be on the frame again just yet as I have a quilt for my daughters 7th birthday to finish before Sunday as well as 7 doll quilts that will be party favors for the party it's all go here
  10. that is beautiful, i love the combo of pink and green xxx
  11. oh my! the angels do puff out nicely xxx what a lot of thought you have put into this work, your customer is very lucky to have you as her quilter
  12. Wow xxx that is unusual and so pretty xxx I love your feathers
  13. thank you for all the suggestions I am loading it on the frame now and will "audition" some colors and patterns with my plexiglass board in a little bit. I will upload some pics of the quilting one I get started

  17. I am so sorry for your loss xxxx the quilt is beautiful and you have truly done it justice with the quilting xxxx
  18. It's great I always wonder about halfway through the quilt "what am I doing???" and feel like I've made mistakes, and then when I unroll it I'm always surprised at how much better it looks just for having been taken off the frame lol! Well done zxx
