    My DH outdid himself today. I was using curtain rods to support my clamps and I asked if he could make something for me ... he sure did!!

    This baby quilt was done for a first time quilter. My customer made this for her very first grand-daughter who is due later this month. Unfortunately, she had not understood or forgotten that the LQS told her to leave extra fabric and batting on all edges of the quilt.  Actually I think she simply followed instructions on how to prepare her quilt if she was quilting it on her domestic machine... She really wasn't quite sure but anyways... 
    When she called me she told me that the quilt had been trimmed/basted and pinned and was ready for me! Yikes! Well, I said "bring it over and let's have a look and see what we can do". Thankfully she had left enough backing on the top and bottom so that I could add fabric to the backing to be able to load the quilt with my leader grips. There was barely enough extra on the sides and I was able to quilt it and keep it square without having to add extra fabric. I literally had about 1/2" of backing on each side... Had to watch QP VERY carefully as it quilted near the edges!
    It was quilted with Yipee Ki Yay panto by Patricia Ritter.   Superior So Fine on top and Magna-Glide bobbin on bottom. 
    Thanks for looking.

    I have the scoop foot and LOVE it! It's great over the bulky seams and great when doing E2E with Quilt Path.
    Highly recommend it!

    Our local quilt guild is hosting their 30th Annual Quilt show this weekend. I was asked if I would like to participate in a 'Bed Turning' event. My daughter and I will be doing a 'generational' display starting with a quilt my mother (her grandmother) made for me when I was about 5 or 6 years old. My mother was a seamstress and made all my clothes and this quilt was made from scraps of fabrics from blouses, dresses, skirts, etc.. that she had made for me. I used to love looking at it and remembering all those outfits. My daughter 'stole' this quilt from me when she moved out as it has special meaning to her as well. When she was little and staying over night at Grandma's, she got to use this quilt and even when it got too small for her (the quilt was designed for a youth bed so it was shorter than a regular twin) she would insist on that quilt! Now her children love the quilt and it's starting to fall apart but isn't that what quilts are for. To be loved and used... 
    Following this quilt will be her first quilt, my first quilt done on my APQS - (this quilt top was completed in 1994 for my daughter and when I had finished piecing she didn't like navy and pink anymore so this top sat as a UFO until 2011).  We will move on to various quilts we have both done and have significance to us. 
    We will finish the bed turning with my Farmer's Wife Quilt which I just completed. My daughter had bought the book, I stole it from her... used the fabric she gave me for Christmas one year... so as you can see this is really a joint show for the two of us!
    Thanks for looking!

    My daughter and I had a great time this weekend finishing up a quilt she started 7 years ago. This was one of her first quilt tops she made. She is planning on giving it to a friend who will be starting dialysis in the next couple of weeks. 
    I completed all the feathers earlier in the week and she did the rest of the quilting. She has only done a couple of quilts before on my Freddie. She did an awesome job! 
    If you notice one corner... I forgot to do a feather... noticed this as we were taking pictures of the quilt. I said I would reload it and add it but she insisted we consider it a ‘design feature’. She will add her quilt label to this area so it worked out just fine
