    Finally finished my aunts Christmas gift. SHEW....... thats a huge relief. Does anybody have any suggestions about what I can do if my longarm quilter doesn't have it done in time for Christmas? I thought about wrapping a picture of it.... Just keep your fingers crossed for me, she can have it done. I am absolutely not going to expect it or pressure her in any way to finish since I'm the slow poke just now finishing it.

    This is my fourth TATW quilt. I guess its my favorite pattern :)

    I updated, and marked it off my quilting confessions list

    Your quilt is very nice. I do hope your quilter has it done for you in time. I have never done a TATW, but it is one that is definitely on my list....for this next year I hope.

    Such a lovely gift. I would give her a picture if it isn't finished, but I'll bet your long armer gives it all she's got to get it done.

    Its very pretty, your Aunt will love it. I would have the picture ready just in case it isn't ready. But, if you have let your quilter know its a Christams gift she will get it to you if at all possible..I know right now we are working about 16 hours a day getting orders out.

    Your aunt will love this quilt no matter when she gets it. Have a picture ready just in case the quilter didn't get it done in time.

    Does anybody have any suggestions about what I can do if my longarm quilter doesn't have it done in time for Christmas?
    How about using a walking foot and quilting a diagonal crosshatch.

    Just sew diagonally through each patch - corner to corner - then on to the next from one edge to the other. When you get done you'd end up with an X through each patch. I think it would work well for a TATW.

    Or you could follow the design of the quilt and go diagonally around each color band. In that case you'd have just one diagonal line through each patch and the overall quilting would be a large square pattern. This might show off the design a little better.

    You make it sound so easy, but I'm sure I would find a way to complicate it. lol Thank you so much for sharing that idea, and taking the time to explain it. I'm still new to sewing, and I've NEVER actually quilted any of the tops I've made. I am definatley going to try it, but on a project for myself (incase of ooopsies) :)

    Beautiful quilt. Your Aunt will love it. My Dad is getting a picture of his quilt for Christmas because I will not have it quilted by Christmas. I will wrap up and give him the pillowcases that I did manage to get done. :-)
