I quilted in the ditch on my Bernina. On the white strips I used a varigated thread and the feather stitch to add interest. Finished size is 36 X 47.

Want to make a scrappy quilt but my limited stash but was wondering if I do a Rail Fence do I have to use all of the same fabrics with the light and darks?
Thanks for your help. I'm making it for a friend whose Mom just passed away. She needs a little comfort right now.
It was made with really nice cotton fabric, dang nearly perfect stitching, hand painted faces and bamboo. The creator did sign it. I fell in love with the piece especially since it was made really well & with care, I brought it home washed it and proceeded to take it apart. So I made a mug rug, I free motioned all of the background. I made a lavender pin cushion and a needle carry case. I just love it. If you notice I printed my label along with the creators signature. After all she did
So when I export from picasa i have a choice on the size picture i want to export to a file on my desktop. I'm doing a round mug rug, I want it to look as though you are looking into a pond at a coi fish. I put organza over the fish to see if I like the effect. When i post the picture on the board, it must be cropped, lightened and made the size best for observing on the computer.
the first picture is 380 pixels
I would like any input on making quilts out of double net fabric.
Someone on this board had asked about a free pattern for a mug organizer. I found a free pattern at keepsakecrafts.net/blog/2010/12/31/an-organizer-for-the-new-year.
Not sure if you can find it, maybe just go to keepsakecrafts.net and look for it. I printed it off, but had to write in some of the directions. There is a simplicity pattern #2450.
Ok here are some of my rugs in progress. this is the front and back, no binding yet.
