    It was a quilt in 3 days. Just finished it last night. For a quickie quilt, I really like it. Guess I don't have the patience for long projects. This pattern is called BQ2 and it's made/designed by mapleislandquilts.com. The BQ stands for BIG QUILT.

    That is a beauty! I love the quilting. Do you have a statler? Or do you use the long paper patterns?

    Very nice.

    Very nice! Love your quilting pattern. I think I might even have it! I have some of the pre-printed stecils that you pin to your quilt and follow the lines, then tear the paper off. It works really well and my grandson loves to sit with me and tear all the paper off.

    Beautiful quilt! I suspect that most of the 3 days was spent in the quilting! Nice job!

    I love the quilt! Not too sure where some of those "quilt in a days" are made...someplace with way longer days than I seem to have! I did an E.Burns Trip Around the World - in a day (times 3) and I didn't even have to do the quilting or binding. It takes me a day just to bind one. Did you make up your own quilting design? It is very nicely done.

    Thank you ALL so much for the compliments. I think I wanted to show some of you that you can make a pretty decent quilt without a long drawn out process (I'm impatient). I can't sew like Shadow Dancer does, so quickly and beautifully. The quicker the better for me :?

    I did use a pantograph and I have a Gammill. That was the easy part.

    What exactly is a pantograph? Is it made of paper or hard plastic?

    No patience for long projects? Wait, now didn't you have that gorgeous double Irish up a bit back? You can't fool me for one minute. Ha! Very nice.

    First off, nicely done Jackie. I know the quilt in three days is an achievement. And yours came out much better'n mine.

    A pantograph is a simple machine made of four 'sticks'. The four sticks are assembled at the ends so the whole thing is a movable parallelogram. You put a a stylus on one corner, anchor another corner to something solid, and a third corner drives another pencil, marker or in this case, a quilting machine.
    Place a pattern you want to quilt under the stylus, thread the machine and simply trace the pattern with the stylus. The machine follows along, quilting the pattern on the paper.
