NOW FINISHED W/pics - ok, I'm out of ideas - Any Suggesttions???

Recommended Posts

I have CC'd and Terry Twisted this type of quilt to death. I'm bored with them and I would really like to do something different, but I just don't know what.......Do any of you have suggestions? My customer can't pay a lot, so simple is better for this one.

Patty Jo I just posted an easy overall under the topic "Why I love my APQS". Why not do an overall rather than a semi custom. My quilt was 71x 71 and took me less than two hours to put on, quilt and take off.

You could do some sort of line dancing or just panto it. There are some really nice pantos that would give it a nice movement. Kristina's suggestion of overall feathers would be nice.

You all have good ideas. I thought of that and I think I'll go and check out my pantos and see what I can find. This is my 80+ grandma who is making about 2 quilts a month so that all her grands, great grands and any future great grands will all have a quilt from her. They are all pretty simple in pattern and CC's have been my go to pattern for her quitls, but I just can't bring myself to do another one. Thanks for the ideas. :)

Since it's Grandma, I don't think I'd do e2e. I'd choose a nice block pattern. There are a gazillion stencils out there and I'd get a pretty one and use it over and over.

I think I would do some sort of spiky cc in those four squares that stand out in each block. Then I would feather meander the rest of the quilt. I know you don't want to cc, but a cc with points just in those areas would look cool surrounded by the soft feathers.....and a feather meander is fast.

Actually this is a customers quilt. I call her my 80+ grandma, but she isn't related. She always tells me to do what I want to do on her quilts. It doesn't seem to matter what I do, she loves it, so I think it will be an e2e. I'm on my way to pick through my panto's now......we'll see what I end up with. I'll post a pic when I'm done.

Ok, here is a picture of what I'm doing. I'm having problems with dislexia (sp) and so you will notice that my swirls are not all going as they should. But at this point, my swirls are just going to have to be good as I've done everything but stand on my head and at my age, that would hurt!!!! ;) Here is the pic

Patty Jo, it is looking fabulous, I would not worry about swirls, which look good to me.

Sometimes I start quilting feathers and half way through I go from bump feather to Longarm feathers, and my swirls never go the same way :P

I love this and I can never get my swirls going in the same direction but I have decided that it gives more movement I think it makes them look like they dance or spiral around the quilt. I love the feathers I still can't get mine to look large and flowing like that they always look small and fat.

Any day that I get to quilt is a great day.
