    A quilt top from jennr8r

    Hello everyone,
    You might remember the quilt top JENNR8R posted a couple of weeks ago, asking about the smaller top she made out of the scraps left over, and wanted to know if the small quilt would be good for a baby quilt.
    Well, she sent me the large one and this is how I decided to quilt it. The batting is Hobbs 80/20. I did learn a lot on this quilt, one of which is the most expensive thread is not always the best. I used Superior thread, and if I had it to do over I would use signature, or something simular.
    I hope you can see the pictures good.
    Thanks for looking,
    Cathy

    I would agree with you that sometimes using the most expensive thread and not always the best!! I have used superior thread in the past and have never had very good results. I just love your quilting and design patterns use choose to bring this quilt to life.

    Cathy did this incredible piece of quilting artwork in a WEEK!!! The first time I sent a small wallhanging to a long-arm quilter was in November 2010 (that's not a typo, it was 14 months ago!). A different long-arm quilter has has another quilt of mine for 7 months. I still haven't gotten them back.

    When I saw another quilt that Cathy did on this Board, I knew I wanted her to do this one for me. Sending this quilt to her was the smartest thing I have ever done. I am so blessed. Thank you Quilting Board and THANK YOU CATHY!!!

    Someday I'll own a longarm and create some quilt tops that I hope will look as good as yours.

    Both you all did a GREAT job, Signature thread is one of my favorite threads. 7 months is way to long to turn around a quilted quilt much less 14 months. You should always ask what our turn around time will be for your quilt. I tell everyone just where they fall in line and how long it will take to get your quilt back. I prefer no one ships the quilt until 2 to 1 week before their place in line is comong up and I contact them at that time. If they have found someone to do it faster than I can then I ask them to call or email me so I can remove them from my list and move someone else up.

    I did ask about the turnaround time when I interviewed the long-arm quilters. The one from 14 months ago said she would get it done within 3 months. The one from 7 months ago said I should have had it before the end of 2011.

    I like your idea about not giving it to the long-arm quilter until a few weeks before they are going to start on it... Or I can just ask Cathy to do my next one!
