    C sent me this quilt 2 of 4 to be Long-armed.

    It is ADORABLE! All of my boys looked at it and thought it was not "cute" cause they don't use that term..it's an insult. They think it is "COOL". :roll: My kids see a lot of quilts and they don't usually comment unless they really like it...so if that means anything C...your quilt got a :thumbup: from my boys!

    Anyway, I decided to stipple so I could sneak designs in within the stipple...stars in the sky, trees mixed in with the trees, fish in the with the ducks and fish..water designs with the water.
    IN the first border I did the falling leaf design. The outer border is actually a feather design but it looks like a leaf as well..just sort of whimsy ...so I thought it was appropriate.
    In the house of course I put several types of designs to look like a roof, window and siding.
    I love all the different textured fabrics and critters in the quilt.Lots to work with and so fun to play with designs.

    Sorry C the moose eyes fell off when I took it off the frame...but he really is adorable.

    I had to take pictures outside because the quilt is so big it doesn't fit in my room. SO the lighting isn't all that great for showing the quilting.

    I used Hobbs polydown batting.

    I quilted this freehand on my innova. No pantograph or computer quilting.

    Thanks for looking!

    Chrisma, Great job. I really like how you did it. I am however mad at myself over the cabin. I wish I would have changed it, before I sent it. It doesn't look much like a cabin! Thank you so much.
