    Ok Monica, what do you mean "your latest and last?" Is that a person of some kind - some kind of a munchkin? It is cute! Who is Zelda?

    Nancy, That is my second quilt of Link, a lap size. My first quilt of Link is this wall quilt. Link is a character from the Legend of Zelda. Here is a wiki link for you to read on the history of this game: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Legend_of_Zelda

    Mr. Roboto

    I just finished a twin size quilt on Friday. It's made from a kit for The Linus Connection's annual quilt/yarn blanket challenge. This year we got a kit of 4 fabrics from the "Mechanical Genius" line of fabrics by Mo Bedell, we could add up to 3 solid fabrics to our quilts. I added a teal blue,lime green and royal blue. I wanted to use the robot print so that I wouldn't have to cut it up too much. The blocks are 16", I named it; "Mr. Roboto". I pieced it on my electric and treadle Pfaffs, quilted it on the Viking Sapphire, using a King Tut thread (cairo) and a turquoise blue to match the solid on the back. In the photo the quilt is upside down, I didn't see that the bottom row(top in photo) was put in upside down. Oh well the child that receives this quilt will still love it.

    Sharon, I love your Mr. Roboto! Nice pattern, colors, and robot fabric for a child. I like your binding too since it is a great way to use up the fabrics. Thanks for sharing with us.

    BoJangles: your Christmas Twister Quilt is the most imaginative creation I have seen using the twister ruler. I love your border gold touched fabric and the bright Christmasy fabrics you selected. Way to go!

    Love Mr. Roboto! And I love sewing on my treadles too - I think I'll drag one out, today and put her to work.

    Love "Mr Roboto"....and so will the lucky child that receives it. It will make perfect sense to the recipient to have that row turned....the robots will be right way up whichever end you look from Great colour choices too.

    Monica,
    I like your Link quilts, it looks like it was strip pieced. Was it?

    DD and I made a Link costume for her when she was 10, she learned to sew by helping with the costume. She tried to tell me that she didn't need to know how. Now she's 25 and loves to sew all sorts of Anime costumes for herself and bf.

    Sharon, The wall quilt is made from 2 1/2" squares and the larger quilt is made from 4" squares. I cut each color into strips first. Those strips were then cut into single squares and each square was arranged to form Link. I then sewed each square together to form rows. Rows were then sewn together. The wall quilt's quilting is the look of spotlights shining from the four corners onto Link. This is a very easy and fun quilt to make.

    This is my first 100% done on my FW quilt. It's for my sister's grandson and I hope he likes it. He loves to skateboard so I decided on this..... copied one of the kids on the fabric and appliqued that. I was a little worried about FMQ on the FW and it wouldn't work when I put the cover over the feed dogs but when I reduced the stitch length to 0 and removed the cover it worked fine. I still have to put the binding on but I just couldn't wait to show it off.

    Jean you did an awesome job on the quilt and especially the skateboarder! I am really impressed that you FM quilted the quilt with a FW! I was always told not to do that as it might burn the FW up - but, look at you and the job you did! Those little machines are just work horses! Great job, great looking quilt from the choice of colors, to piecing, to applique', to quilting!

    Thanks vintagemotif...... I pondered on this one for quite a while. The nephew is 13 so I figured, lots of color.

    Thanks, Nancy. I was a little worried about FMQ on the FW but it is the only machine I have with me at the cabin this summer. It did a great job, I think, and I didn't push her too hard. I'd stitch a little and take a break. Some other board members had told me they did FMQ on their FWs so with this lap-sized quilt I thought it would be okay. She's still happy this morning and anxious to get the binding sewn..... at least she is making her 'I'm happy' sound. I love this little FW...... the others will get jealous, I think.

    WOW! That is awesome, Nana! Great colors and I particularly like the echo quilting in the medallion. Good job!

    Nanna-up -north,
    Beautiful quilt! I'm impressed greatly that you did the FMQ on your FW. Where did you get the light blue skateboarder fabric/which fabric company?

    Sharon (purplefiend), thank you. I don't know the fabric company. Along the selvage it says, Joy Allen(that's a guess because it's in cursive) for Elizabeth's Studio llc. I bought it online last fall but I don't remember the site. I think I googled skateboarder fabric. I used what I had left for the backing so there isn't much of a selvage to find.

    Thanks, Glenn..... Oh, I forgot to ask you, did you get any fish on your fishing trip? Our fishing up here in the northwoods has come to a stop.... boat in for the winter...... getting ready to head to warmer weather.
