  1. That is just cute with the fruity colors and cool white!
  2. Your modern border is perfect for that pretty quilt! I will try to remember it because I am liking modern more and more!
  3. Just lovely. The lady that pieced the original blocks would be so happy the work of her hands was finally finished so beautifully.
  4. Sometimes all a baby quilt needs is a little fast free hand. The balloon fabric inspired me to make up a new free hand. After a little practice on paper, I just did it! My client and I loved it. The other free hand of flowers, leaves, spirals, and feathers is a favorite free hand that I do a lot because it is just so pretty. .
  5. Yes, judges look for starts and stops. They also check to see if the stitch length is consistent, stitch in the ditch is in the ditch, and backtracking is invisible. They also check to see if the density of the quilting is consistent across the quilt. Do the quilting designs enhance the look of the quilt and do the thread choices enhance the quilt. Straightness of the edges and borders is also checked. I have been in many judging rooms in different shows. The judges are all taught to look for certain things and then it gets down to what quilts are in the category and which ones stand out on that day, at that show. And sometimes if the judges are n a good mood I love quilt competitions but the judges constantly surprise me with their choices!
  6. What a fun quilt and the quilting just adds to the party! I like modern quilting more and more!
  7. I have several gentle s curve rulers that I use for spines for feather borders. I use the ruler to sew the spine and then do various free hand feathers coming off the spine.
  8. Just WOW and congratulations! Think of all the quilts you can design with all your Accuquilter prizes! You may need to have a cutting party so you can play with your new toy and have friends sew some of the quilts!
  9. Yes, I agree with Zeke. Call APQS the wheels with the yellow inside them start acting up and throwing off the smoothness of the stitching. Installing new wheels is fairly easy but you do need help balancing the machine as you take off and put on new wheels. Good luck!
  10. This quilt should win a cuteness award for sure Quilting can just be so much fun!
  11. Love the quilting and how you let it keep it's vintage charm!
  12. You really accented the sunflowers well and gave it a custom look without quilting it to death. Very pretty!
  13. The interwoven squares really stand out with the different quilting designs. Job very well done!
  14. I just love it when a simple "top" gets transformed into a "quilt"! You added some long arm magic and poof it is done and beautiful!
  15. Your quilting really adds interest and texture to this nice top. It looks very pretty for snuggling under! Not every quilt needs dense show quilting.
  16. They had an ice dying class at a recent Sewing and Quilting Expo and I passed on the class. Next time a class is available I am jumping right in! The dyed pieces are beautiful and the quilting is outstanding! I want to do it and quilt one! Thanks for the pictures.
  17. The hair pin quilting goes nicely with the striped sashing. You have done a nice job keeping the quilting light and enhancing the piecing. Job well done!
  18. From one Iowa girl to another....so, so, georgeous! I love the glowing colors and the feathers!
  19. I love the quilting in the center of the star! It must be stunning in person! Congratulations! I hope you got to lurk around your quilt at the show to hear all the wonderful comments that must have been said
  20. Only Superior thread for me. I wind my own bobbins on a stand alone winder. Omni from Superior is nice too and comes in a lot of colors. I have tension issues with King Tut thread but I usually use a solid thread for the bobbin so that doesn't help with tension.
