    Great quilt! I love your topiary trees that you appliqued along the edge. They really set off the fussy cut Log Cabin blocks. Now every one will be looking for that fabric.

    Lots of luck trying to find this fabric after 30 years. I did make a mistake, it was made by Peter Pan instead of Concord. This was pillow fabric with matching coord. Still have some of the pillow top print left 2or 3 yards. Any suggestions?Name:  pillow top.jpg

    I think you nailed it but most comments are going with the knee jerk "that's not accurate " statement without really understanding what the "modern" quilt movement is ( think Elizabeth Hartman, people)

    I bought a janome 7700 this year and I paid a lot of money for all those fancy stitches and by darn, I'm going to use them! Of course I know that I must experiment with different threads, but here are some more examples of my "experiments". These are receiving blankets for my granddaughter's baby. They were done with 40wt, 100% cotton thread by signature. I have friends who have never used their fancy stitches on their machines! Name:  Baby Pink.jpg

    At our quilt retreats, there is not one person under 45, at the quilt stores I frequent there are very few people under 45. It must be that the respondents to those questionnaires were that age and the folks who were too busy quilting did not answer and they were over 45. LOL

    I think I misunderstood the article. Apparently, I shouldn't read articles above my knowledge. When the article stated "Modern" I took myself as a modern day quilter (quilting in this day and age). I'm just a little old great grandmother trying to made up for lost quilting time!

    Wonder where they got their information. Our big quilt group at church has all members way beyond those ages and none nearly that young.

    I guess I started early! I was 19 when I finished my first queen size quilt. I'm 21 now, and about 10 quilts later, I'm still going strong. =]

    Not in my area either, I guess that just leaves all of us who are much older completely out huh? lol. I wonder if the survery that was taken either forgot to add us because the ones doing the survey thought we were just too old to matter or able to do anything anymore. lol.

    You say you are 68, I am 78, and my husband is 86. How do we fit in? I've been quilting since 1989.
