I'm baaaack. I just finished this custom wall hanging. I decided not to overwork the panel because you couldn't see the pretty thread so I just kind of traced around some of the design to create somewhat equal quilting. I tried something new on the border and I think it turned out farily well for this particular quilt. Don't be afraid to critique my work. If something doesn't look right, I need some opinions.

Jackie.......I'm sorry hon, but I do see one thing wrong with it.
I'm not sure if you really want to know. It's nothing REALLY bad, looks like it can easily be fixed. Yes, I'm sure you could easily fix it.
You really want to know what it is?
Ok.....sigh....I'll tell you.
Here goes......
That's what's wrong with it! :)

I think it's beautiful! I love it!!

It's really beautiful Jackie. Wish you were closer, I need four quilts long armed. Is that a word? I need them for the Oct. quilt show. Keep up the great job!

Oh my word. I'm no where near ready to do one for someone that is entering their quilt in a quilt show. That would be waaaaaaaaay to scarey.
:shock: Thank you for even thinking I could do something like that. Where's the quilt show?
My spell checker doesn't think "longarm" is a word or "longarmer" but we use it all the time. I suppose "long arm" is proper.
I do see something that a real pro might think is wrong but I'm just going
to say that I did it on purpose. :oops:
