Hi all. I'm not sure I have ever shared my blog on the forum. So, I just wanted you to know that I have one. I try to post once or twice a month. Sometimes I include a tip or technique, a "wish I'd invented that", and a life learning. It's located at Quiltniques blog I hope you can see the picture I attached. No drooling please.
I have been busy for the past two months quilting for customers and myself. During a lull in customer quilting I pieced two identical quilts. One for my daughter and one for myself. She picked out the focus fabric last year and I went back to the store and purchased the rest of the bolt so I would have enough fabric for 2 quilts. I used the Happy Trails quilting pattern from Keepsake Quilting. I stopped quilting customer quilts a week before Christmas and loaded both quilts on my Millie at the same time. One after the other because they were too wide to fit side by side. I freehand quilted both of them, mostly without the stitch regular on. Vickie, (Beachside Quilter) came over and we brain stormed quilting ideas until we came up with the design. A big thank you to Vickie. I finished the binding on my daughters quilt at 11:00 on Christmas morning, wrapped it and went to her house for the day. She was totally surprised. It was the first time I was able to quilt something for her that she didn't already know about. I finished binding my quilt a few days later. I used Glide thread in Military Gold top and bottom. Here are the pictures. Thanks for looking.

Hi everyone, Here are some photos of my daughter's Christmas quilt that I finished last week. Her birthday is Saturday so I'm giving it to her then. It's not a surprise. She picked out the fabric two years ago and made one 9 patch block in a class I was teaching then never touched it again. After 2 years I decided I was tired of looking at it on my counter so I told her was going to finish it for her. She hasn't seen it quilted yet. I used Dream Poly batting and Glide thread top and bottom. This was my first pantograph. It is called Holly Bells. I'm using the same pant on a customer quilt now. I'll post pictures when I get it finished.
