Welcome to my blog

Please don't remind me that I'm poor; I'm having too much fun pretending I'm simply "living green" like everyone else these days.

D cup quilt top - finished

The D cup quilt top is finally finished.  Even the binding is done.  It came out square even though it's not a square quilt, its a rectangle.  Square simply means the sides are even and not one longer than the other.   Personally, I think it came out good enough to enter into the fair.  It's too bad none of the big quilt shows have a category for "issue" quilts.  I might have a chance at winning in that category.

Here's another picture of it finished.  Look how straight the seam lines are.

The solid squares.

The pieced squares.

The setting triangles and the inside border.

The outside border, and again, the inside border.

A blurry look at the back of the quilt.

Next time someone asks you.... "You can quilt that out for me can't you?"  Just say.... "Yes, I can quilt that out" because Anita, the Fairy Quilt Mother, taught me how.

I stand amazed by your talent! I doubt that I will ever be able to say that I could do that, I can't even machine quilt the smallest piece! Your are truly gifted.

Oh Anita, my fairy quilt mother, can you help me with BOYS?? I'm telling them that TODAY, I'm busy and they need to feed ME and do all the dishes. Wonder how this will work??!! I bet I'm hungry all day long.. lolol but I AM busy! I got a new customer at the baseball game last night ( I need to order business cards!) and another one from the Quiltingboard/ my blog coming in today. I better get GOING! I hope you get a nap today with your 'excitement' from last night.

I had saved these earlier posts to read, and have now gotten through them. Your quilting is incredible, and quilts like this one are what keeps me from getting a long arm machine, since my dh says I have to turn it into a business...I've never been a doodler and feel that limits my capabilities as a quilter for others...thank you for sharing this project...it turned out beautiful!

Angie, you don't have to know how to draw or doodle in order to quilt for others. There is a market for simple pantograph quilting as well. All you have to do is trace the lines of the patterns. You can also use pantographs for custom quilting. I plan to show that technique as soon as I can. Maybe after I've shown the many ways pantographs can be used you will change your mind. (smile)
