Okay, now, admit it. You've got some of those preprinted panels and blocks stashed away now don't you?
I rooted around in the stash and found more than I can remember purchasing. So I've been on a sewing spree to use these stash items. You've already seen the Seashell one in this post but I am putting a photo in here to show you the quilting. Here are two more (a third awaits layering and quilting).
I tried out a new long arm quilter. To say that I am disappointed is an understatement. Because I have a commission quilt in the offing I wanted to find a way to quilt it without breaking either my bank account or my back. The quilting is pantographs, but the spacing where the quilt was rolled is terrible. The quilter also did not take any consideration of the design of the quilt. And each quilt was quilted in white thread, irregardless of the color of the quilt. Thank goodness these are donation quilts and a child will not question it. Am I being too picky?
Click for bigger. I would have quilted this one across following the the strips of fabric.
Click for bigger. The Cowboys. I borrowed an idea from Elaine Adair for the top and bottom borders.
Click for bigger. Moths not Butterflies. My favorite of the lot, but it is too loosely quilted.
Shame on me; I guess I paid for what I got.
