    This quilt is one that I long arm quilted for a customer. I also did the binding by machine on my Viking Sapphire. She designed the bear medallion in the center and then kept adding to it, border by border. She was thrilled with the way it turned out, and I was glad that she loved it! :-)

    You did a beyond fantastic job! I like the bear in the middle , especially the turquoise arrow. I just woke up and haven't had enough coffee and my first thought about the arrow was "this is where stuff goes in, this is where stuff comes out". I love it!

    That's an amazing quilt and your quilting is equally amazing. So many designs pulling it all together.

    Oh my gosh....never in a million years would I ever have that much creative juices flowing to do something as beautiful as that. I no longer want a long arm machine. :lol:

    I wonder if you could tell us how much that quilting would cost? I realize she was a friend but if you did it for Jane Nobody Special

    My first thought was Wow, that's a lot of stippling in the bear block and then I saw the other pics with a different design in each. You did an amazing job on the quilting...really let your creative juices flow. No wonder she was happy to get it back

    Thanks so much for your kind words! It was a challenge to come up with the different quilting motifs. I used cues from the kokopelli fabric and came up with some of the swirly designs from that. I also looked online quite a bit. I also live in AZ so I do see southwest designs quite frequently when I am out and about. Repeating the designs was the key to unifying the quilting and the top, IMHO.
    Thanks again! :D
