    I have the top of mine done, pinned and ready to quilt. Thinking of interlocking heart designs over the blocks. I'm not much of an artist so drawing - even trying to visualize some of this-is very difficult for me. Found some heart patterns in Quiltmaker magazines and have been playing with them and the enlarger on the copier. Will see what happens when I get to it.

    That pattern was the very first quilt I made. The class was offered using Trudy Hughes' book. I stitched in the ditch to finish it.

    I have made two of these quilts. They went together well, but I would not recommend it for a first timer. I made mistakes both times and had to do major un sewing. My first Lovers Knot was in a class, and there were three first time quilters there. THey struggled so much and occupied the instructors time. I even had to help the gal next to me quite often. I did free motion quilting, loops and swirls on both quilts all over the quilt. I was happy with it.

    I made one and just did my usual, favorite quilting on it, A large stipple or meandering.

    Thank you sewplease. The quilt was a wedding gift for one of oldest Granddaughter's friends.

    I've made it 3 times. The first 2, I tied. The last one I did the "Vibrance" pantograph. It waited almost a year before I found a pantograph that I thought would do it justice. I made it at 4" because at that time, I had a short arm. Now that I have a mid-arm, I would make it 8". I like how it replicated the "V" in the lover's knot pattern and it looked like feathers (which I love).
