    Take 5 Gets the Point quilt -- quilted for customer by Dee

    This is the Take 5 Gets the Point quilt I quilted for my friend, Jeanne. It's a fun one to quilt -- always turns out so pretty!!

    The straight lines you see are the Vanish thread from Superior -- used to stabilize the quilt.

    I used Warm and Natural batting and King Tut thread -- it's 67" x 84 1/2" wide and the designs are all freestyle.

    beautiful quilt and quilting. I love that the colors make it suitable for Christmas, but it's not a "Christmas" quilt per se.

    What a beautiful quilt, and I love your quilting. And don't you just love that Vanish thread? It makes everythng so simple. No more hand basting. Can't use the spray glue - cuz I have COPD. Great work!

    That is a beautiful quilt. Love the quilting also. My flowers and circle are nowhere straight like yours. I'll just have to keep practicing.

    Dee, you have done it again!! It is beautiful, I made this for a friend who is nuts about Shabby Chic, this should suit her just fine. I think that the quilting is beautiful. Wonderful job. Jeanne

    I love the border fabric!
    Quilts, like friends, are warm and comforting; and you can never acquire enough of either.

    Thank you everyone -- but I want to clarify -- it's NOT red and white!!! It's a rose pink and white. Think Shabby Chic!!!

    Very nice. What is Vanish thread? Is it a water soluble thread used for basting? It would certainly make life simpler if it was.

    Beautifully done, both the piecing and the quilting. Love the design you've used.
