"thanks orville. i did what i should have done this a.m. i looked at the full size image and then did the screen stretch thing w the ipad. that way i can see that both ends slant to a point not just nearest one. also easier to see thst the base is…"
":( so sad but so proud of you. the biggest fear is unfinished quilts. this is so very special. whom ever gets it will be so blessed. very beautiful quilting as usual. you are amazing.
orville, what is the pieces of strips on the ends, if I may…"
This is my current project. An unfinished quilt by my 90 years old recently departed quilting friend. I sewed some blocks from her cuttings to match hers, added sashes and borders and started quilting it.

I am new at quilting but since I have seen your work it has inspired me to try and perfect the beauty of hand quilting. So I am currently only practicing on whole cloth. I only wish I had half of your talent. Your work is stunning, you must be so proud. I am young and have only just begun. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work, I will remember you forever. God bless!
I see you're up early too. My sewing room looks neat, but I DO have another storage closet filled with bins(organized) of batting & larger yardages. Under the cutting table is my portable stash of prints (in bins similar to the ones on rack),. I take those along in the RV winters, along with enough solids taken off the minibolts to get me by for the kid's quilts I do for hospitals.
oh my! thank you so much for sharing the pictures of the quilt show. it's absolutely stunning to me what people do with fabric. anyone who feels that quilting is not an art should attend one of these quilt shows. it would quickly make a believer out of them.
Orville, I'm very pleased to meet you! I'm thrilled to see a guy who can appreciate quilts, and make them besides. My hubby doesn't have an eye for art of any sort, so it's nice to see a male perspective on my work :). And someday, if I work really hard, maybe my quilting will be as wonderful as yours.
