    Eddie, you have done a great job on your longarm in the short time you've had it. A friend recently bought a Gammil and may teach me how to help her quilt on it. I'm a little intimidated, but willing to learn. Jan

    I really like this one Eddie.

    I love how the hearts also look like Heart Leaf Philodendron leaves.

    Nice job.

    Still work a 40-hour a week job, so only have time for quilting in the evenings and on weekends. :(
    I think you need to quit your day job! :thumbup:

    Oh Eddie this is my favorite one so far! Brings me to tears as you have done great justice to all her quilts and I know how I would feel if someone treated my hard work with such honor as you have hers. Mrs. Senter would be so proud!

    Your friend must be thrilled to have his grandma's quilts come to life. How lucky he is to have you for a friend and what a great place for you to practice with your new baby. Looks great.

    Eddie:
    What kind of batting do you use. The quilting sure shows up nicely?

    I used Hobbs 80/20 cotton/poly batting in this one, but I also use Warm & Natural cotton batting. Both are a rather thin batting, which I prefer.

    What a wonderful present. It makes it so special that you know so much history about the pieces.

    I'll just bet each of those tiny blocks and pieces were all hand quilted by her. A beautiful quilt, you did great too. What an heirloom.

    Yes, they were. I looked at the back of the top and it's so neat to see someone's hand piecing stitches from 80 or so years ago. I look at them and wonder what they were doing while stitching those - were they talking with loved ones, listening to the radio, sitting on the front porch, watching over grandchildren, etc.
