    I am so glad that the grownups are finding their way home and that you are pleased with them.

    So tell me how the panels were made, were they prepurchased already printed? Or did you send them thru the ink jet, or are they an iron on. That will depend on the quilting. Now I quilt thru mine all the time, even photo quilts with a monopoly. There is some new stuff that is really nice sold thru Superior Threads that works like a drean on these types of quilts. I would do just an outline of the larger features. I know the cotton says you can quilt up to 11" apart, but if this quilt is going to be used, you don't want that. If it is going to be hung, I am a firm believer in a wool batting and quilted softly over the designs to stabilize them while they hang. A cotton batting hangs nicely as well, but can droop because of lack of quilting. This is just be experience and studying the quilting process. That is my opinion.

    I have been MIA, got that nasty cold and not much energy to do anything and I am still going to work with it. Went to office last Friday with 101 temp. The phone rang twice all day. Did not get my work done at all because could barely sit up enough to look like someone was there. Getting a bit better now if this cough would quit I could handle the rest. I know, many of you are waiting on your blocks and as I have stated, they are all cut up in a box sorted nice and neat waiting to be sewn. Working them down. I am using my grandma's 1970 Singer. It does pretty good, but slower to use than my Bernina which is doing embroidery for gifts right now and customer quilts. I will be getting on them asap.

    QuilterMomma...The woman I bought the panels from said they were not ironed on but I dont remember how she said they were made. I know they are on white 100% cotton and the panel feels like a tshirt,almost rubbery feeling. I dont know yet what Ill do with it yet. Im just in limbo on what to do with them...even as far as sashing with colors etc. They are really pretty scenes from the War with good colors and want to use them somehow. I may bug you again as I get time to look at them closer and try to decide! Thanks for your answer!

    I received my block from Fraew and its prettier in person than on line! Thank you so much. Its the lst flower basket Ive ever received and I love it! I tried to leave you feedback but it wont let me on anyone..not sure what Im doing wrong!

    Makes me wonder if it is a sealer she put on them. If pressing at any time I would be sure to use an applique pressing sheet over them to protect both iron and board.
