    On a long arm....I just go with the flow. I am looking into getting some stencils to help me learn how to do feathering. I love it and can't do it well.
    You do beautiful quilting, I encourage you to do whatever it takes to continue working on your skills. Very nicely done. :thumbup:

    It is fun. There is a learning curve. I learn the best by watching other people quilt. I can get the basic design in my head and roll with it. I like watching videos on youtube. My mom got the pajama quilter videos and they are great to watch. Just practice, practice, practice!!! Keep it fun and play. :)

    Precious little guy and pretty kitty too! Oh, and of course, the quilt is beautiful! Grandma will love it if your little guy will part with it!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    are the round print pieces stiched on the top or are they blocks? I like the snow ball pattern.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    The round ones are added right on top. I left about 1/4 or more around the outside of it and cut the edges so they can fray. After it was washed, it frayed up beautifully.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    Grandma should love that quilt. I like the way you did the edges with half circles.

    Beautiful quilts and wonderful quilt inspectors. Believe they both may be trying to stake their claims. Couldn't help but think your cat almost looks like he's playing the game "Twister"!
