    SulaBug -- you & Cindy did a great job on this beautiful quilt! What will you bind it with?

    Hi Ladies & thank you for the kind words re:my quilt top. I plan to bind it with the floral fabric, that I have used in piecing the quit top together. I am hoping that it will look really good with that fabric, when I am done. I will share a picture then. Until later have a great sewing time.

    Mine done!

    Ok gang, share time! After quilting Sulabug's, I finally figured out what to quilt on mine! I just finished it! I did feathers in the outer points & peacock feathers on the star itself. I also did the peacock feathers in the corners. Did a feather braid in the blue sash & leaves in the outer piano keys. Hope you can see the designs! Trust me, it looks really awesome in person!

    Cindy, oh my, that is just beautiful! A question - did you use different threads on the top than the bottom? I'm not a very good quilter, but I'm learning!

    Jeanie, thanks for the compliment! Yes, I used a cream on the bottom & Pink & blue on top. All of it was Glide thread, by Fil-tec. Wonderful thread! Tensions aren''t a problem & they quilt up sooo nice!

    Karen, she's been pretty quiet as of late. I hope she's mending well, hope there's been no complications. I'd guess we'll be hearing from her before too long. I thoroughly enjoyed this last one & am looking forward to the next one!

    RE the picture above: Half the fun of quilting is choosing fabric and in my humble opinion, I don't see much fun going on.

    LOL and the ambience.....not my/your LQS !!!! the light fixtures !!!! one thing is similar the table fan.

    hope the bins are clean on the inside, the outside looks like war zone. I do not like to be mean but would not want this to be on my map for shop hop .

    Ok, everyone, I'M BAAAACCCCKKKKK!!! Better than ever, the only thing I need to work on is climbing stairs, but the new knee is great and I'm doing everything else that I ever did before hurting my knee 4 years ago. (I never ran before, won't be starting now LOL)

    I pretty sure I will make the first posting on 10/13. I finally designed my pattern and am washing fabric as we speak, and will start cutting and taking pictures this weekend. I am excited to get this going, I had such a fabulous time with the last mysteries, and am looking forward to meeting will all of you again. It will be in a new posting, and I probably will just call it Judy's 3rd Mystery Quilt Train Ride, for all of those who will be looking for it. It will be in the Blocks of the Week and Month section. If I cannot make it on the 13th, will post something on that date, but will DEFINATELY be started on the 20th.

    Again it will be done in weekly installments, seems as if most everyone liked to have a clue every week. So be patience a bit longer, my friends, and will see you in a couple weeks.

    Glad to see you back, Judy and all healed. I will be picking up the clues but will not be able to do anything until the end of Oct or the first of Nov. Going to have the right hip replacement on the 15th. Had the left one done 2 yrs ago and am looking forward to this one. Will have ethe surgery around noon on Monday and will go home Wednesday. It will probably be about 10 days before I will be able to get back to my sewing area.;

    Judy, welcome back! So glad that you are feeling better!!! Excited to start, even though the other ones are still sitting here waiting to be quilted. Oh well, they are keeping each other and many others company.

    Take care of you!
