    Ok, here it is all quilted.
    Just needs to be binded. Will use the same fabric/color that I used for the little border.

    There is some puckering on the front, but I do like it. It gives it some sort of dimension, I think.

    I hope so!
    I was thinking.....if it goes for less than $100, I wonder if I can take it back.

    I don't know if I can put a minimum bid on it or not.
    I'll have to ask when I go to drop it off.
    But, I'm sure there will most likely be a bidding war on it.
    Then those that don't get it will probably hunt me down and ask if I'll make them all one.

    Oh, I love it...I have to admit, I am much happier now that you quilted it instead of tying it. I think it will bring more $$$. Let us know and also let us know how many more you will be making :lol:

    This came out beautiful! Feels good to get one done, doesn't it? Now, tell the truth--the whole time you were working on it you were planning your next quilt, right????

    That really turned out nicely! You did an excellent job. I hope they'll let you put a minimum on it, but I doubt they'll have any trouble getting lots of bids. It's just beautiful!

    I always have a next one and next one and next one planned while doing one in progress. Who doesn't?
    I'm going to try that paper piecing thing, maybe....unless Skeat wants to come and show me personally how to do it. Sometimes I just get a mental block and can't grasp what is written and have to be shown. Pictures don't work, hands on does. ;)

    That sure is worth more than $100 in fabric, batt and time!

    Quilts have to get more attention for people to finally give them the value they deserve!

    If you can, yes, put a minimum on the auction.

    It's a lovely quilt, lots of work and heart :D went into it.

    Oh yes....more than $100 was spent on fabric.
    I am just hoping that people will appreciate the time/effort that is put into making quilts.

    I can see why he wants to keep it!!! LOL

    They are wonderful, earlier today they wanted to know if we could "drive" to Guam someday, it would be "too cool to go where it doesn't snow". So I showed them the world map AGAIN LOL.

    Just remind them of all the water on the postcard and no bridges. :)
    It'd be nice if I could just get in my van and drive off this island, but I don't think it would float too far.

    I am a Navy wife and if I were there I would bid on it for sure, and you better get more then 100 for it. Maybe you can bid on it too so that you make them fork out more money.. just a little trick. I love it.. good job!!

    Wait...that's a great idea you had! Let the auction announce that this is the One And Only Ever To Be Made quilt, and let the bidders either bid high or lose out :wink:

    I would LOVE to keep it myself, but bid on it to drive the price up? No, I'll just make another one, maybe
    It's not exactly what I wanted to do. What I wanted was....embroidered "dolphins" (not flipper looking ones, these signify submarines) in the middle, with the I love my Submariner around it, but couldn't get the "dolphins" and wasn't going to pay anyone for them. Especially the lady who said SHE has the copywrite on it. I DON'T THINK SO!! This "dolphin" insignia has been around for over 100 years and I don't think she is that old. I tried to digitize it with my program, but found that my program is "lost" on my computer and I cannot for the life of me find the discs. So...I just changed it to Sailor, so that way, EVERYONE can bid on it.

    But thank you to everyone for their kind words.

    Oh, I don't think it will be a one of a kind, someone will most likely approach me and ask if I'll make them one. SURE!! How much money you got???

    Leslee.....Love your Hawaiian Quilt avatar. I have one myself, but it's called Under The Sea. Really really cute, it is. I also have my name on a quilt that was being made by a guild in Hawaii. I was wandering around fabric shops and whatnot and came across some ladies embroidering a quilt. I just stood and watched and chatted a bit with them. They invited me to help. I refused at first, then they sat me down and I was there for a little over an hour "helping" them. When I excused myself to leave, they wanted to make sure they had the spelling of my name right so they could add it to the "Makers" of the quilt.

    Thank you! That quilt was my first large one; it took close to 200 hours of work to complete. You probably saw the postings in the Pictures section.
