    I'm sticking to my "no more than four unfinished projects" at a time rule.

    I got Fall Twist back from the quilters. I'm happy enough with it, I was just hoping when I gave her complete decision power, she'd do something more involved. She ended up doing about the same as I did to the bargellos I quilted. She did some random wave sort of work in the border. A bit disappointing because she's great at custom work. Anyway--it's done--binding and all. The batik binding was tough on the fingers!

    Finished the little bargellos. One is 25" by 21", the other is a table topper at 23" by 13". My daughter-in-law loves that one, so after a quilt show, it's hers. I FMQed both and am very pleased.

    The woman at the quilt show I'm doing Wed loved buying potholders last time, so I made 15 of them with panels. I'm practicing sewing the binding on by machine, and after some good advice from a "Main" post I got it worked out. :wink: I still have a few bindings to get on those.

    Thanks for looking! :-D

    Your remember this one....

    Wait, are the first two pictures of Fall Twist?

    Fabulous and very vortex-y.

    I'll wait until you verify before I add more. ;-)

    Ok, again, LOVE the vortex.

    However, that quilting - you sent that out?

    I could have done more with it and I don't FMQ.

    It's not that it looks horrible, but that's like the LAZIEST job of LAQ-ing I've seen. Ever.

    I hope you didn't pay much. How big is it?

    That's the kind of job I'd expect from some of those ads in the back of QNM. "King size quilt for $35."

    I just found my first quilt - a king size TATW disaster. That's appropriate quilting for it.

    Again, it has nothing to do with your lovely pieced top. As usual, the fabric selection is fabulous.

    I would have left it there and made her do more or do it over. :roll:
