    Is this quilted on a Longarm Machine? I am in the market to purchase one, and am very impressed with your quilting job. What machine did you use? How did you do such beautiful quilting on the Longarm? (assuming that is what you used!!)

    I used circle templates. I purchased a set of even circles (2,4,6,8,10,12 inches) years and years ago (I don't even know if a person can purchase that many in a set now.) Then about 2 years ago I decided I needed on uneven set (3,5,7,9 inches). Now I can mix the two sets and have about any size I need.

    In the quilting on this quilt I never stitched completely around any circle template. I jumped from seam to seam so I have very few stops and starts, but the ending result often looks like I stitched circles.

    Hope this helps, Have Fun!!

    Yes, this quilt is quilted on a longarm machine. I purchased a new Gammill about 11 years ago. Just a simple one, no stitch regulator, no computer. A few weeks ago I quilted my 1,000th quilt on it!!!!! So I guess a person can say that the beautiful quilting takes a lot of practice. (grin)

    I hope you get one and enjoy the process!!! Relax and have fun and you'll be amazed at what you can do.

    I believe my customer told me that she used a pattern from a magazine dated in the 1970's, but she did not remember which magazine it was. I do think a person could make this quilt without a pattern as it only has the two blocks: the scrappy block is 8 inches square (finished), 2 1/2 inch squares set 4 x 4. The hour glass block in 8 inches square (finished). Hope this helps a little.

    Gosh, I don't know. I do know it's a old pattern, but a very nice one. And one to use up those scraps.

    Being a retired shop teacher and a newby quilter, I do believe a feller, or lady, can do this one without a pattern. Believe I'll try. I have done one with a 25 block square that was really simple. Now, whenever I buy fabrick, I immediately cut off a couple of 2 1/2" strips and put them back, just for my jelly roll stash. Nice quilt. I like it. Jack

    I love scrap quilts, especially those that have fabrics that all seem to coordinate together. Love the pattern.

    Love both the quilt and the quilting...beautiful design. To me, nothing says "quilt" more than these Civil War type prints and colors.
