    I suggest if your auditor isn't a quilter, then change auditors straight away LOL But then again this could be an omen - your idea could become famous and people will be writing checks to you !!!

    Pretty quilts difergie and paperpieceme! Finished already? I'm still planning, if the ideas would stop coming I might be able to settle on one and just do it, lol. I always plan to take the entire month to get my quilt done. Luvstoquilt, don't expect a squishy anytime soon.

    I'm excited to get the mail today. Hopefully my postal worker will be here soon! I'm still working on the doll quilts for Tulip and Mariah. Maybe I can get a sneak peak posted tonight or tommorow for them.

    I received my doll quilt in the mail today from Tulip. I will add some pictures to the thread, but they don't do her work justice.

    The quilt is absolutely lovely! My favorite parts are the tiny piecing, the layers at the center of the sunflowers and the hangers on the back of the quilt. She also added a pretty card, some fabric I can't wait to use, sunflower seeds, a thimble, notebook, marking chalk and a magazine. I feel really spoiled! Enjoy the pictures.

    You are doing better than me! I finished one but it came out so big it is way, way beyond the dimensions. I will keep it and use it for a table topper.....for a BIG table. I'm going to start your 'real one' today.
    Sew many Quilts.......so little time!

    This is a message for Lv2sew2011,

    I am on my third try for a doll quilt for you. The first I spent two weeks and many, many hours until I decided it was just too frustrating. So found some nice blue and yellow blocks I had made and thought maybe it would be a nice spring doll quilt. But now I am thinking something else after seeing such beautiful quilts here today. Well, I still have a few weeks so I better get started tonight.

    In the same quandry here. Sort of. I want to do applique, but should I do it on one piece or in blocks. Decisions, decisions.

    I am doing applique but its absolutely not my favorite thing to do. I have done needle turn but its so hard on my eyes I am doing fused and its tough for me to get things exactly right on the line. practice makes perfect and all that stuff... not perfect here. I have it all fused now to sit down and stitch around things. I like it and hope my partner will too. I will have that out probably later this week originally had it set for Tues but spent yesterday making a table runner and four boom blocks. I get so all over the place when I sew. I like .. variety so I work on this , then that, then oh start another project, go back to this .. skip that for a while lol.. a bit of a bee on my projects never staying in one spot for too long.
