    my quilt is on the long arm, waiting. work has been crazy since i returned from vacation, today I chose an afternoon of birthday shopping with my 8 yr old grand daughter who asked to include a quilt store so she could get more fabric for another doll quilt... that just made me melt. She wants to learn how to make doll clothes too! Tomorrow is a quilt show an hour away, looking forward to that too. Sunday is scheduled for quilting!!!

    Ligia,
    I know she will absolutely love these colors for her bed. How is the weather in Miami? Very gloomy in Rhode Island today. Enjoy your visit to the states .. I am really anxious to see the quilt up close. You do such beautiful work.

    Sunbonnet Sue is now sandwiched and basted and ready for quilting. Have a lot to do this weekend, though, so probably won't get to it until after taxes. But I feel "caught up" and no longer worried about meeting the deadline. Now I have to figure out how best to quilt Sunbonnet Sue squares. Any suggestions?

    Jillain, I think I'd either echo quilt them or fill in the background. My project is still in the binding pile - but I finished the big quilt I was pushing myself to get done last night. Quilt show today, clean house tomorrow, then back to the UFO pile

    quilt for quilters

    I need some ideas how I should put this Baltimore Album quilt together for Wuv2quilt she had some very serious operations which might prevent her from finishing my quilt but I designed this for her and I plan on finishing it for her.I have about 14 blocks done. Should I do some type of sashing or put it on point? All suggestions will be welcome.

    wahoo, my quilt is off the long arm, and I managed to get the binding sewed on so it has made it all the way to my recliner for the hand stitching! I must say that I am pleased with the way that it looks, might just have to make another for the quilt show!

    I don't believe I'd put them on point because you have that awesome larger block that would go great in the center with the others around it. Maybe sashing and a pieced border that incorporates the colors you used in the applique? How would a Baltimore Album quilt normally be put together?

    Great feeling to be caught up. I need to get there sometime soon. All hits at once I suppose when you leave things in their to do pile and play on the board. On the SBS quilting, I like to do an echo of the design and quilt on the actual SBS to enhance the features of the sue on the back with SID around her. It looks so nice on back. Depending on your setting and sashing, I would do feathers in the sashing, and borders. If you have more than one border, do a nice ribbon in the tiny border and the feathers in the larger. If you have setting blocks, I would do the traditional feather wreath or heart with some crosshatch. I love heavy quilting on my sues and I do not know how you will quilt yours, hand or machine. But that is some ideas without seeing the quilt top.

    Thanks everyone. I was thinking of doing a vine with leaves and flowers all around the basket and then depending on the size of that surround that with the rest of the blocks. What do you think for the last border? Maybe a scalloped edge. This is my first Baltimore Albumn and I'm so glad that my partner likes it so far.
    Just to let everyone know my DH got the ok to eat regular food. Thank you God for helping me get thru this trying time in my life. And another thanks for all the prayers from evryone. IT WORKED!!!!!

    islandwiz1hmygoodness! What a gorgeous quilt you are making! Amazing!
    I really love blocks on point! Scallops would be pretty too!
    I may need to rethink what pattern to make!

    I have started the quilting on my quilt for Vanogay... and after a couple of attempts at quilting the pattern on my machine, I decided to hand quilt it so she will have to wait just a little bit longer but it does look nice so far.

    A little spoiler for Mindless (Chris) my awesome partner in this swap. I took the pic with my cell so it's not great but you get the general idea. When done, it will be very colorful!

    Love it Sibi. She is going to enjoy it I am sure. Wish I still looked so good. Is that what you do with those empty spools of thread?

    I am just going to have to start wearing my wooden spools in my hair, if was long enough, and make myself a ring, a matching braclet, and a necklace. maybe even put them on my shoelaces for ornamentation. i will be so goodlooking in wood.

    OH WOW! I can't believe you have the top finished. I'd love to see it! I've got all the fabrics for yours and the pattern picked out. (Had carpal tunnel surgery on my left hand on Monday, so can't cut or sew as yet!) Don't worry, I'm sure I can finish it in time!

    Wow, I'd love to see a picture of that! Who knows, maybe you're on to something....... You could actually decorate the wooden spools with sparkly gems, string them together and make a necklace, right?

    OMG, I just googled spools and lookee what I found:

    Just wanted you to know my girlfriend is WUZ2QUILT, Miss Beckie to me, and she cried just telling me to look at what you have done on her quilt. Even got goose bumps, just talking about her quilt. When I saw.......WOW......GREAT JOB! Just thought you would like to know this, Miss Beckie is the sweetest person I know, you are awesome for still making this for her. thanks Mrsaj11, aka Angela
