    ffq-lar got a reaction from Anette D. in Ferny quilt with fleece backer   
    My sister made this lap quilt for her DH. It doesn't have batting, only a nice thick green fleece backer. It is a bit curled on the edges but we hope the wrap-around binding job will help. Quilted with lots of ferns. I can't get two pics to load so a close-up will be in the next post.

    I was finally able to post an avatar after 7 years!
    Where do you have your photos stored? I had to re-size to 640x480 pixels and then half that before the photo would post. This is from photos saved to my Desktop.

    I'll wait patiently while Dawn tries to find all our lost Favorites.
    Until then, every post that you "Like" is stored on your profile. Like the ones you want to keep so you can find them again.

    Ditto--only the threads I've replied to recently are in my content. I know Dawn said things might look funny for a while and it would take time to import all the info from the old forum, but...
    Another problem I'm having is trying to change my password and user name. Can't seem to get it to take. I'll give it a couple of weeks and then contact Dawn. Is there just one person we need to contact for these issues?

    ffq-lar got a reaction from Tracey in Need ideas for this cool bargello   
    I was going to suggest rays going straight out to the edge of the white--all rays using the center of the bargello to set the angle.
    Then I looked again.
    How about rays that start at the intersection of two of the outside rectangles. (Best to mark first before loading) When marking, place a long ruler on the top right corner and bottom left corner of an outside rectangle and mark to the right until you hit the red border. Each ray will be offset and will continue the spinning of the circle. Use thread to match the white background. I imagine the circle is appliqued on a background so hopefully it is flat and quilt-able without puckers. That can be a problem with rays that extend a long way.

    Hey Girls...another one for that show in November (I am still working on the Labrynth and will post when done) I know I want to do spiraling feathers in the bargello circle (unless someone has a better idea) I am going to do a rolling feathery tendril thingy in the outer red border as it is quite narrow. Only 4".
    I need some spectacular idea for the white without getting it too dense. Any help would be appreciated.

    Here's a scrappy NY Beauty-style quilt. She said everything was from her stash. The colors are more vibrant in person.
    Photo removed by poster--trying to post a different pic on another thread....

    Well, I have completed one more thing on my "wish list" as far as quilting. I entered and was accepted to show Bali Wedding Star at the Des Moines quilt show. I was there yesterday and got to see MY quilting hanging at a National Quilt Show. How exciting is that? I will probably never do it again, but I was very honored to be accepted. I received many nice remarks from fellow quilters at the show as well as many of the vendors. It was a fun day and nice to share with my quilting friends who were with me.
    Congratulations to all the winners............a lot of FABULOUS quilts on display.
