Snowbirder huh??? We've probably been in the fabric store at the same time time lol! I waited a long time to get a sewing room, it is my retreat. I must admit I am somewhat of a hoarder as you can see. I collect sewing machines. So far I have a 1937 featherweight, 2 singer sewing machines, one brother 1500s, one Husqvarna embroidery machine, a serger and a hemmer. I am piecing this quilt on the Singer 774 I love the straight stitch that Singers make.

I have been just reading for a while trying to find my way. You ladies are a wealth of information and very busy! I hope I can keep up. Please feel free to call me Jacque (Jackie). I hope your niece likes the name I find it to be a very formal name but I guess I will keep it, it has served me very well!

Welcome Jacqueline.

I like that quilt in your gallery. I have the pattern but haven't gotten to it yet. You've done a really nice job with it.

Jacqueline Boswell:
I am not appliqueing; it is all pieced.

I would love to see a close-up of one of the flowers.  I just can't see how that is pieced.  The shapes seem so irregularly shaped - I thought it must be appliqued.  3500 pieces?!  That's amazing!

hi Jacqueline,

I just joined the club a few days ago and have been enjoying chatting with other quilters.  I am one of the newbies. I just started quilting in October last year.  Do you hand piece or hand quilt?  I've been doing machine piecing and quilting, but hand sewing the bindings on my quilts.  There I go chatting away again, welcome to you and hope you enjoy QCA as much as I have been enjoying it !!

Jacque.  That is indeed a beautiful quilt.  Is it a Pam Bono design?

Jacque, I too thought it was applique but I see now it is indeed pieced, it's amazing!  I can see where the massive amount of pieces came from now and the amount of time it took to complete.  Just beautiful!  My mind is trying to decide what I could do with this in a small way, maybe a motif in the middle of a wall hanging, a table runner, etc.  I must try this, will you share where you got the pattern if it still exists?

Oh Jacque, how beautiful this looks.  Are you paper piecing it?   It looks so impressive.    Ginny

Oh gosh, I am sorry ladies I did not mean to post the same thing twice. I did mean to share the information about the pattern for the quilt but not back to back!  GEEZ! In case anyone is wondering one rose block is 64 pieces.
