Recommended Posts

 My customer sent me a message last night she won second place at here local quilt show with this quilt I did for her. I was so excited this is the first quilt I custom quilted that has won a ribbon. 

:D Happy dance

 

I have had several people ask to see this quilt here it is the customer was very happy with what I did with it thanks for all the advise.

Thank-you everybody for your Ideas I ended up pin basting and I am very happy with how it turned out. Here is a picture.

 

 

I could use some guidance I am working on a Judy Niemeyer quilt, Cattails in the meadow. I want to start in the middle and quilt out from there.

Anybody have suggestions or step by step instruction so I do not get wrinkles in the backing. Thank-you in advance if you can help me.

When I baste for hand quilting, I just turn off the stitch regulator, and do a big loopy meander.  Then take them out as you come to them.  If you wait until after the whole thing is quilted, you'll be pulling them out from under your permanent stitches and be very sad.

Pin baste to Center in 4" grid, pins parallel to bars, stitch from Center to bottom of quilt, then roll back to Center and stitch Center to top edge. I have done this a few times, and I think especially for Judy's medallion style quilts is a good choice....

Thanks Ardelle that is what I was thinking of doing hoping somebody would confirm my idea.

I pin baste any quilt that I am not doing in an overall. 

Usually I work one colour from top to bottom and pin baste all the unquilted areas.

 

Use the clover Flower head pins #2506 the 0.7mm x L.54mm, then you can use your ruler base and they do not interfere with it.

 

I have about 500 of these ready to use and 200 more in the pin drawer ready for the biggy quilts.

I hate to pin baste, and I hate dealing with the pin. I would do as Beth Durand said. The basting pattern isn't as important as the big stitches so that it is easily removed. Loose tension...what would be bad tension..also makes it easier to remove.

Terry:

 

I like how you accentuated the quilt top design with the flowing quilting around the cattail frowns filling out to the border.  Your quilting looks stunning.  Another job well done.

Another feather in your cap, reaffirming your quilting skill set.  While we have recognized them, now the world is too.  Keep up the outstanding work.

Terry, WOW, just have to comment again, and a big congratulations for the second place.

 

LOL, I entered one of the quilts Marintha pieced and bound, and in between I did just an all over

e2e computerized design.  We won $7.00 prize money.. I gave her half and the ribbon.

She was thrilled.

The cashier thought I was nuts when I laughed over the $7.00.  Wont buy much, maybe

tater chips, dip and a candy bar.
