Elizabeth--your sister will be so proud of her quilt.  It is just amazing. I love how you changed the quilting pattern in different areas of the quilt. It's just beautiful!

Donna--you coworker should love her table runner. It's wonderful! You can't miss with pretty purple flowers!

Thank you! to all who have commented on "Spin Cycle".  I really do appreciate your input!  I don't have anyone to bounce ideas off of around here.  DH tries...but bless his heart, he really doesn't care for anything more modern than what his grandma quilted. She did some beautiful appliqued quilts, but I don't.  The old cat won't even comment...she just goes and sleeps in the closet.

Jacy, I think you may be right.  I think it's bothering me because it looks so flat...two dimensional...no depth.  I see it more in the photo than I did with it on the design board.  That 'flatness' bugs me. Makes me feel like its dull...boring.  Hope my quilting helps it.  Right now I'm going to leave it out of my sight for a while.  Then drag it back out when the weather is cooler and I can stand working with it in my lap and over my shoulder while I quilt it.  Too hot for that right now.

Besides...I started playing with my batik scraps!  I have a new project I'm playing with and having more fun than should be allowed by law!  I don't know what is SO FUN about playing with scraps!! I guess cause I know I can't mess them up---they are already 'scraps', and I can't make a boo-boo on the pattern--there isn't a pattern!!  It's just color and contrast and fun.  Here's a pic, but keep in mind they are in no particular order or arrangement...just as I've finished a block and pressed it and stuck it on the wall.  They will be trimmed and 'fitted' together later on.  And hopefully color patterns will develop along the way. I need about 275-300 of these little guys before I get serious about 'assembling' them.  This little group covers and area about 26 X 30 inches.

Hope you all have a productive quilty weekend, and those who aren't up to snuff get lots of rest and start feeling a little better!

Max

Ramona!

What a wonderfully relaxing visit you had with your friend!!  Did you quilt day and night?  The quilts are really wonderful and they look great!  Your friend should be thrilled!  You deserve a break and a well-earned rest!

Max,

The sprial on your quilt looks great! Very modern and out of the box. I agree with Jacy, once you get some of your beautiful quilting on there it'll really pop.

Elizabeth,

Whew! That's a lot of quilting. Great job with the pebbles and line quilting. Love it and I'm sure they will love it too. The pillowcases are great too.

Donna,

That is such a sweet table runner. I can smell the flowers.  God does give us great beauty to enjoy. We can enjoy it two fold when it's in fabric.  Great job!

Max,

We had a great visit. Not much relaxing going on but I needed to build up my stamina after having the foot surgery in January. It was about time to get going and it certainly pushed me in that direction. The first few days I was really tired and my foot and ankle got really sore. After that things perked up. We were quilting most of the time, some shopping and rest cooking. It was fun to have a friend around to chat, quilt and embroider with. 

Your scrap quilt is wonderful!!! All those batiks.  I keep saying I should keep my scraps for just such a project. I doubt I'll ever get to it but it's on the quilt list. :-)

Hi Everyone! Wow, a big welcome to all the new members! So many in so few days. There is so much talent here! I am back from my visit with my sister in VT. Had a wonderful time! It is so beautiful up there in Northern Kingdom VT. How deceiving is the beauty of summer there though, the winters are brutal. I live in western NY and get the lake effect snow, I still would never handle winters there. LOL

Yes, I did work on my quilt. I finished quilting my Drunkards Flower Path (with Butterfly Kisses). Yippee! I just need to clean up the unwanted floating threads that are caught in the the stitches and then bind it. Here are a few pics of it.

Max, your batik scraps are going to make one beautiful quilt!  I'm thinking maybe the lighter ones in the center radiating to the darker ones, or maybe vice verser would be interesting, it would draw you into the abyss.

Ramona, that's a lot of quilt to get done in just a short time. I so impressed.

Elizabeth , beautiful quilt and pretty pillow cases to go with them.

Max, I like they way you think, taking scraps and making jewels from them.

Bonnie, lovely quilt and beautiful quilting. You may be new here but not to quilting. Welcome to QCA.
