    A Lion-size Dream

    Really beautiful job on this quilt. Your FMQ is really good.
  2. I guess the question really is...what size quilts do you make most often. I personally do not have a king size bed. No one in my family does so I do not make king size quilts so a 10 ft table is all I need. I would indeed feel cramped with a 12 ft table in a 14ft room but that is just me. Angling it would make the room seem even smaller to me. This really comes down to personal preference. Set up two chairs or tables at the width of a 12 ft table. Or spread out a sheet on the floor and fold it to the dimensions of the 12' versus the 10' table. See how much floor space it takes up. There are thread cabinets that fit under the table that will save additional floor space so that won't be too big a factor. The chances of doing a panto from the back may be slim if you are using Quilt Path but you still need to be able to get back there for maintenance and general cleaning. Map it out so you can physically see what you will be dealing with.
  3. Wow, those are gorgeous. That must of been some stiff competition to beat out Henry, he is awesome. And Ellie is as cute as can be.
  4. Beautiful quilt. I love how you quilted and then painted the flowers in the baskets. Great job.

    This is what it's all about.......

    I am so lucky my daughter loves quilting. I hope to pass it on to others someday. I think it is wonderful that she made this with your help.

    Using scoop foot on applique

    I use my scoop foot on applique all the time and it works great, it never catches on any edges at all.

    Christmas Quilting

    The tree skirt is awesome. I love it. And both of the table runners are very pretty.
  10. I have the stripology ruler too and it has improved my cutting tremendously. I would recommend for all the reasons Baihly did.

    Batting tape

    I have used it on both sides and so have had it facing both the front and the back of the quilt and haven't noticed any difference at all. I use it quite often.

    variegated thread in bobbin

    Don't we all. Cagey, I think you are right about generalized statements. Too many of these "facts" come from one isolated incident. Testing it for yourself is always the best way to go.
  15. Wow, that woman was rude. Sorry about that. I had my fill working with rude people when I worked at the bank for years. I will probably never do quilting for people for that very reason.You just can't sort the good from the bad, they don't wear signs unfortunately.
