Donna B:
BTW, going anywhere south in the near future?  Wasn't that I-5 bridge crash something!!!  

 

Donna, that was mind boggling. We actually are supposed to go to Mt Vernon this weekend. We'll take hwy 99 down but if it's too backed up at Cook Rd we'll turn around and go home.

I'm not sure why they are recommending Hwy 9 as a by-pass. Good Grief that is way and beyond out of the way. But it's going to be a nightmare on Hwy 99 so perhaps 9 would be worth the added hour or two. Pretty drive also.

Sukochi:

Oh, Judy it is just beautiful! I love that pattern. you did a wonderful job on the quilting. Are those Birkenstocks on your feet? Or, are those YOUR feet.

 

Thanks Sukochi. Not my feet. It's George's tootsies showing. He may be a gorgeous man, his feet leave a great deal to be desired. I definitely did not marry him for his feet!

Julienne,  you can also try your LQS to see if they have anyone that has let them know that they are a long arm quilter who is available to do quilts for others.      Ginny

Ginny:

Judy that quilt is so, so very cute.  I can't believe that you have no one in mind when you made it.  Ginny

 

Ginny, I saw it made up at Sew Expo in 2010 and just had to have the pattern. My granddaughter was only 16 at the time so I knew there wouldn't be any great grandbabies anytime soon. She's now engaged but intends to wait to marry until she's through college. Someday.

Well, I guess that you could let her know that you are all ready with a beautiful quilt for a someday GGbaby , so she could think about that while she is in school.  Think it would give her any incentive to hurry up and finish school early?   LOL    Ginny

I make oversize king quilts quite often.  I quilt mine on my domestic machine.

I have always done my own. This is my first King size however (yet I have done alot of queens and you would think I would not be scared) but it seems overwhelming. I think I just need to sit down and and do it. Heck that is what this machine is for right? And I have been doing this for years so I should not be this nervous with this one. It is just an extra special one for my DS. And I have put so much work into already.

Thanks Nana. I enjoyed the quilting this time and didn't worry about what it was going to turn out like. It's definitely a cheerful hodge podge.

Judy, you do such wonderful work.

Well, here is a photo of my sandhill crane quilt so far.  Just the background and a paper crane pattern attached.  Will work on appliqueing the crane tomorrow.  It's about  26 x 56 inches.

Patti, I love the background to your Crane quilt. That appliqued Crane will be awesome. What color will the crane be and will you needle turn or raw applique?

color will be medium to light grey and rusts.  With red on his head.  I plan to needle turn.  Have the fabric cut out already.

Patti, your crane will be spectacular!  I LOVE sandhill cranes.  It's on my bucket list to see their mating dance some day.  It shouldn't be that hard because we have many of the cranes in this area, but I'm not sure where/when they dance.

Your crane quilt is going to be lovely.  Love how you did the background.
