    Hi Charismah,

    Beautiful. I love the reds and blacks. I puchased several of these panels in different colors and fell in love with the companion fabrics. I think the collection is called Twelve Moons.

    I sewed up the brown panels for a friend of mine for Christmas. Of course my quilting is nothing nearly as elaborate as yours. :) My friend sent a picture of the quilt on her sofa and I was really happy that it blended so well with her colors. :)

    I used 5 different colors of thread. Rust, purple, black, green and gold. Black on the back. For a bit I was having issues with that I got a new tensioner and what do you know? no tension issues.

    I simply outlined the blocks and highlighted every picture within the fabric. I added a few designs to add texture, such as stipple, water and clouds. The moons are already raised so I simply wanted to highlight a few designs within the moon to keep it quilted evenly and also make it POP out more.

    This quilt has black warn and natural batting.

    I quilted this freehand on my INNOVA.

    Thanks for looking!

    And if you do manage to sleep, how many hours are you really sleeping? I just can't believe all that you manage to do - my quilting idol.
    OH you girls are so funny!

    My kids will be out of school the middle of June. I will probably get far less done...but I am taking vacation time in June anyway so I can spend time with them.
    However, School is out for me ( I attend WSU). I took my last final 6 days ago and it was a rough semester...

    Yes...contrary to everyone's beliefs I do sleep. Probably not as much as I should or need....but I try to get 8 hours and end up with about 5 or 6. About once a month or maybe every two months I may be able to sleep a good ten hours and I feel good after that.
    But I am always on the go and no rest for the weary right?

    Thanks ladies!
