    Man, this is a lot of work. I can hardly comprehend that someone does a really elaborate quilting job and says, "It took me 20 hours!" like that is too long.

    I'm on the last row of blocks though! But that doesn't count since I have to go back and do the side arcs and the side borders. I am stitching down along the edge as I go so it's stabalized. Ordered a 20" Boomerang to do curved cross hatching and tracking says delivery on Saturday, yesterday. The only problem is that I had it sent to my work, which is closed.

    I think I might name this "Leather and Lace." That is very appropriate for my daughter too. The pattern is called Faceted Jewels.

    Well.... At least you have a nice quilting machine to do ALL of it on... Some of us really struggle with our domestic machines. The quilting looks great and the color combination is perfect for it's name.

    It already matches her bedding. She has a cream colored spread with a delicate brown embroidery design around the edges and brown suede pillows. I will make up a throw pillow to go with this too.

    Wow, this is great.

    Had to do a double take at the picture though...thought there was a real cat looking in the window when you took the picture. Cracked me up.

    I love that picture! It's a poster that I got online and looks just like my black cat.

    As long as you are enjoying what you are doing it doesn't matter how long is takes you. You are doing a beautiful job. I don't think the quilt police are going to give you a ticket for going too slow or not quilting enough quilts. Haha!

    Very pretty and the colors remind me of the different chocolates, mocha, light, semi-sweet, dark and white. Just very harmonizing and comforting.

    Lots of stops and go's, right? It is a beautiful quilt and your quilting beautiful too. The name is appropriate and I love the colors. Using a Tin Lizzie?

    I have a Queen Quilter, basically a Tin Lizzie. I am using Connecting Threads' Essential Pro thread and I haven't had one single problem with it (knock on wood!) I've used Superior Threads, So Fine, Bottom Line, MasterPiece, King Tut, etc. and I have a lot of problems with the thinner threads, especially Bottom Line.

    This is a simple machine so maybe simple thread works best with it. :lol:
