    Your work is absolutely gorgeous! I have been reading this news letter and quilting board for about a year now and making very few comments (this is because I have very little experience and don't feel as if I have anything to contribute). I have to say though, looking at your work is very inspiring.
    I do feel now that I have enough stash built up to actually start piecing. It is a dream of mine to someday own a quilt shop with a couple of longarms for people to come in and learn with and use.
    The town that I live in no longer has a single place to buy fabric. We do have a couple of second hand stores where clothes could be used for quilting and they sometimes have scraps people have donated.
    I feel quilting is part of our heritage that should not be forgotten or taken lightly. OK I guess I am rambling, but I think a quilt shop in a community would not only add to the revenue, but an involuble sense of freindship and community. I'll hush now. :D

    Jackie,

    I am curious how you get it to look like one design? Don't you have to do it a section at a time, and then roll it to do another section?

    Thanks for showing your work! I love it!

    Jackie, Jackie, Jackie!!!!! #1 : you couldnt be obnoxious if you tried! # 2 the quilting stage is just one part of the process, so of course it belongs on this site!!! #3 Your work is so inspirational!!!!
    Now just get that silly notion out of your head!!!! You dont want me to come down to Las Vegas and convince you otherwise!!!!

    Ok now that you are thoroughly chastised! I love the curly fans! And of course the feathers! All of it fantastic, but I have to say that I liked those one designs until I read the part where you said it looked like sperm!!! Now they just make me laugh!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I love when you post your work. It is always so beautiful. It is inspiring. I have a longarm, but it doesn't get much use. I don't know that many quilters and the only things I get to do are my own quilts.

    I sometimes try to practice, but I hate to waste the fabric and batting.

    Anyway, please make sure to show us your work. I, for one, love it.

    Practice? What do you mean, practice?
    I dont see anything wrong with any of what you have done.
    Heck, if my practice looked as good as yours, well.........lol
    Jackie..you sell yourself short, but then again, we all do at times. We are our own worst critics.
    I just love your work and I wanna be you when I grow up :) :)

    now tell me this: on picture #024, do i see a zipper? with a quilt basted on by gun? please tell me what that's all about. i keep reading about leaders that zip on and off. is this it? why?
    I can answer part of your question. Yes those are zippered leaders. They are nice to have. When you pin your quilt top and backing to these leaders on your poles you are able to remove the quilts easily by unzipping them if you want to check the backing for tension problems with your stitches. Or if you need to remove some stitches you can easily unzip the quilt from the leaders, remove the bad stitches and zip the quilt back onto the leader so you can finish quilting it. You can also load your quilt onto the removed from leaders zippered part, sitting down. Some people have a hard time loading a quilt standing up for a long period of time, so this helps those that can't.

    As far as using the basting gun, I can't answer that question.

    Anything I say here is absolutely redundant, because someone has already said it. All I can think of is superlatives: Wow, Gorgeous, Excellent, and as Terri said "I wanna be you when I grow up". Cause frankly, I love piecing, but I don't like to quilt. I guess I'll just have to send all my stuff to you to practice on! :roll: :P

    Your work is GORGEOUS! My sister-in-law just got a used longarm. She lives two hours away. I told her I'm coming over this fall for a long weekend after she's got it set up and has had time to practice. I'm going to PLAY! I'm bookmarking this thread so I can show her your work and the reference to the online longarm group. She'll love it. Thank you very much for sharing, and keep the pictures coming. We can learn a lot from your experience.

    Ever since I joined this site (before I had my longarm) I never knew so man women could be so sweet and thoughtful and giving. Quilters are very special women and I'm proud to be a part of this community.
    Thank you all for the uplifting words and your support, watching me grow. I do get excited when I learn something new and just want to share with everyone. I show anyone that will stand still long enough to look. :lol:
    See the picture, I'm actually going to piece a quilt for my granddaugter, hopefully, by December. This is my first attempt at the disappearing 9 patch. I love how you can play with it.

    checking this out again- my favorite are the curly fans. I want you to practice some more and then send it to me so I can feel the texture- permanently. :) j/k

    I am just so impressed with your work, I love looking at the pics (and I didn't see sperm so I don't know where your mind is- prehaps too many medical shows on tv while you're quilting?
