I'm going to iron tonight and maybe cut it up. I'm going to put some squares that are left over from the top in the backing piece so that will take me a while because I want to line them up with other squares in the top. I may not start quilting until next week, depending on how long the back takes me to finish.
This is so much fun working on this quilt. I'm having a blast and staying out of trouble.
Hope everyone is having fun with their projects.
I can't say enough good about Nolting's customer service. Yesterday as Kevin was attempting to change out the needle in the FunQuilter, the head of the screw holding the shaft completely snapped off (due to too much force used by said quilter!). Anyway, we took the machine up to Hiawatha today, and their customer service is second to none. Dan Novak is the head wrench in the shop. He and his crew all were extremely helpful and fast....they had the machine ready to go home in no time.
Moedeenie (aka Maureen) pointed out the crocheted bicycle frame cover on the front of the latest Joann mailer. It is hilarious!
I told her that it reminded me of the Purple People - Adam and Eve Purple - who used to run a famous community garden in NYC. They used to ride around on bicycles that looked like that except all purple with many decorations. Here's a link to a YouTube video if you're interested http://youtu.be/-VfBvdzgQxY

Chele, who runs the doll quilt swap announced that she is ready to "retire" as hostess. Since this is one swap that I really love, I didn't want to see it go.
Starting in March, I will be the new hostess.
I am looking for a contemporary pieced quilt of nesting hens. I saw it on Ebay but on auction and it disappeared too fast for me. It was titled "Settin Pretty" Farm Quilt and was a wall hanging.
Ladies I need an answer. I am working on my first quilt top. I used shirts and left pockets on some squares. Do I need to sew these closed before I send this top to be finished?
Thinking of doing the Hunter's Star using camos and hunter's orange. I have been researching patterns, etc. I am knew to Quilt Pro 5 so I have a lot to learn, but haven't seen that block in there as of yet. I may have to figure a way to draw it or what have you in the program. Are there any other patterns that might be recommended for my color scheme? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Also, if any has any pics of camo quilts, I would love to see, as well.
