Elizabeth, you must post a picture of that row quilt.  I got my rows out the other day and put them up on my design wall.  I had forgotten how beautiful they are, all those blues, green, and browns.  I do have to finish this.

I did work on a quilt today and need suggestions.  I made a growth chart for my GGS, Tyler using the quick turn method.  Do I have to tie it now or can I hand or machine quilt it?  I'd love to quilt around the monkey's hand quilting with large stitches, what do you think?  Any other suggestions would be appreciated.  What color thread?  The backing is the blue stripe that's on the front.

Marie, this is so cute.  You can finish it however you want, but, I think machine quilting would make it more durable

Marie, that's so cute. I made one for my DGD a few years ago,it had large jungle animals on it. I just outlined around all the animals. Turned out pretty good. Forgot to take a pic maybe next birthday when DD gets it out again.

Marie,

cute growth chart. I agree that some light machine quilting will work best.

Very cute growth chart Marie. Personally, I think I would quilt it simply because it gives another dimension and adds to the texture. It helps keep everything in place too.

Yes, I've been working on the Log Cabin Quilt which has made several transformations since I first started it.  Because I ran out of some of the fabrics that I needed to make 20 blocks, it is now 12 blocks, sashed (I originally didn't want to sash it)  to make it larger.    Today, I'm working on borders using the scraps of fabric I have left from the log cabin blocks.   I think I'm going to be happy with the result, even though I still have 3 sides left to get the first border done, and my plan now includes 2 more borders after that, but they aren't pieced.

Marie, When I saw this, my mouth dropped open (amazingly it was closed!!) and said "Oh, my Lord, this is beautiful". So cute.

I NEED HELP. I am trying to quilt my first quilt. Stitching in the ditch. The throat length on my machine is short. How do I get the one side, opposite what row I am quilting, all squished in that little area??? Tried rolling it up. Made it kinda hard to stay in the groove when I was constantly having to stop and readjust. Took me one hour to quilt two lengthwise rows. Am I explaining myself correctly??

I feel your pain, Sukochi!  My expensive Bernina has a ridiculous 7.5 inch throat.  I gave up trying to quilt anything bigger than a table runner on that.  I hope others have some useful advice for you.

When I used to use my Huskystar which has a really small throat, I just it up as tight as I could get it and pinned the roll tight.  You're right, though, it was still hard to get it in the ditch, so I usually quilted 1/4" on each side of the ditch.  Much more sewing but it was easier for me, even if some of the rows were just a little crooked, it was barely noticeable to those who didn't quilt.
