    my favorite colors, blue and bluer! you know Tim, if you give your daughter a quilt she'll be warm for a season, but if you teach her to quilt she'll be warm always. or something like that!
    anyway it's very very nice. what kind of batting do you use?

    That sure is one mighty fine quilt!!

    You know, if you run out of time to put a real binding on, you could always use duct tape :lol: :lol: j/k

    It is quite a beautiful quilt, and the quilting is superb. Thanks for sharing!!

    That's a lovely quilt Tim. The blue and white gives it a lovely crisp clear look. You have been busy :-)

    I really like two color quilts, did you design it or follow a pattern? It is a very striking quilt, you did a good job. :D

    I followed directions out of a book on two color quilts. They called it Double Irish Chain, but the color scheme they used isn't correct for a double irish chain. So... I call it Wild Irish Rose cause that's what my daughter is. I added the dentals on the ends.

    In that case he probably won't teach her until she's at least 30. She might get too "hot, and he'd have to fight off twice as many guys!
    No, I'm just teasing. Pass on that knowledge!!!

    Yes, this is for my 12 YO. She is busy making Rennisance costumes on her mother's 20 YO Singer. I think I threaded the bobbin backwards for her last night. It's a drop in and my Ex told me it goes opposite how I thread the bobbins on my Elna or Bernina.

    That is the Warm and not natural cotton batting. Actually it's called Warm and White I believe. Pretty thin but heck, this is California. Unless I have screwed up royally, this quilt ought last her for a long dang time.

    Some of those BWBs are going to be cross hatched and diamond hatched, some are going to have Celtic knots. Wish me luck.

    I love the idea of the celtic knots. I think that's going to be stunning. I have a whole book of celtic designs. It would be pretty to do them all using only the celtic designs. But the cross-hatching will be pretty as well!

    Muscling this queen sized quilt through 15 freehand machine quilting designs isn't my idea of fun. I am not very good at it yet anyway. So some near the edge will be machine free hand , the rest will be cross hatching.

    Aw, where's your sense of adventure K? :mrgreen:

    I'm sure it's going to be incredible no matter how you do the blocks! It's already got a beautiful start to it. I agree that maneuvering that much bulk under the needle ain't easy. :)
