    Teen, classic Santa is wonderful. I agree, keep posting them somewhere so we can see them. I love his staff a little crooked. I'm with Anael, the staffs are made of wood. Wood is not "stick" straight. lol Pun intended.

    Thank you, my friends! I appreciate the crooked staff analysis.....I feel better now. This will be another fun quilt pattern. I love the applique on a pieced block. I'm going to have to do more of that instead of just on a solid background. No trapunto on this one. I may just double the batting with a layer of wool batting. Never done that yet so checking off new techniques on this one. I'll continue to share here since you'all want to see them. Going to quilt this evening a little bit when it's no longer 107 degrees...

    I posted the link in the Sylvia thread but will post it here as well. I made an album with photos from my rides. I thought that would be better than to post them all in the Sylvia thread.........

    That's a neat look Teen. It's going to be so soft and inviting.

    No way! FMQ on my domestic. Not dense quilting. Mostly STID and stitching around and on appliques. I may go back once done and add some more but will see...

    Thank you, gals!!

    OK....that's so pretty and perfect for the drawer. Both are such clever ideas. I have a sister who remembers every special day too. I call her each month to get the low down for greeting cards. Lol... She is such an enabler. Lol..

    Teen, Love seeing more of your blocks and quilting. Wish that I was brave enough to quilt my projects.

    Thanks, Blue Bell.. Since I decided to keep this one, the perfection of the quilting wasn't important. Plus, it's good practice. I would have liked to hold this and quilt on my future LA but I dislike unfinished projects. Lol.. I'll just make another one later. It's turning out really pretty, puffy, and comfy feeling since no dense quilting. My arms are tired from wrestling it, tho...

    So, the center of the quilt is basically quilted....just the borders remaining; however, I'm going to do a bit more detail quilting on some blocks to stabilize the batting more. I should be binding this week.....at least that is my goal.

    Went to 5day retreat. One of the ladies was making a Jen Kingwell quilt. She's to the finals section. It is totally different type fabric from yours. Anyway, got to see this fabulous creation in person. Kudos to all of you making this quilt.

    Petthefabric....do you recall what Kingwell pattern she was making? Kingwell has so many awesome patterns and most of us are all making different ones. Tho...I think some of us own a lot of her patterns and intend to make them all..lol... Or be like Anael and make them all at the same time...

    Quilting done on Green Tea and Sweet Beans...here are some highlights.....so poofy and mushy and cushy....love it!! ....on to binding...

    Hahahaha Teen, I restricted myself to two Jen quilts at the same time.

    I LOVE your GBST, it looks so comfy and soft!! The Trapunto really works! Now to show the whole quilt. What's next on your list?

    I was going to Oder the Midnight Garden book- but am really drawn to the gypsy wife one so ordered that one and the Quilt Lovely book- excited to start trying out her patterns and using up some of the crazy scraps I have. I love looking at all of your blocks.

    No Gypsy Wife is alike, I've seen quite a few and each one is different. I like most of them, some I don't. That's the beauty of quilting, you can do whatever you want because it's yours!
