Debbie, I agree with Julie and Angela, an edge to edge would be just fine, I too have a panto with horses that I used on a quilt similar and it really turned out great. The main material is so busy your quilting will not really show up. I will look for the name of the panto when I get home from work.

Hi Debbie,  I agree with Julia, I would do a edge to edge design.  I know that I have one that I have used that has horses on it.  I used it on a Log Cabin quilt I made for my dad, whose loves horses.

Debbie, my first thought is to do an edge to edge design. If you wanted you could do something different in the border but with that fabric the quilting is only going to show io good in the open spaces. I have a quilt with the same fabric for a friend and I am quilting it with a panto called "Yippee Ky Yea" (or something like that) by Urban Elementz. Happy quilting!

I would sure like some suggestions as to how to quilt this with my Tin Lizzie.  I love the open space and the frames.  I've been looking at this top for months and have not yet discovered what it wants.  Knock, Knock mentors.... any ideas!

Just wrapped up the second Longarmers Unplugged group meeting!  It must have been a success, as we went an hour over our scheduled stop time!  9 attendees, and lots of discussion about insurance, marking methods, and customer intake interviews. Our hostess took us upstairs to demo her Statler Stitcher system, and allowed us a peek into her "roset", a room converted into a closet for all the quilting supplies and customer quilts.  It was awesome! Can hardly wait until the next one!

I buy wholesale from quilters dream. Love their batting. But most of my customers provide their own.
Comment by Eileen Keane on August 9, 2011 at 7:27pm
Yes, I buy wholesale. I buy directly from Quilters Dream in VA Beach, VA and I buy my rolls of Hobbs 80/20 from Linda Taylor.
Comment by Penny Streeter on August 9, 2011 at 6:54pm

Batting question, where do you get your batting?  And do you buy wholesale??

Guess that's two questions. 

Thank you for your help

My business is pretty slow. But Penny, your award winning quilts are stunning. Of course you are very busy. Because I work 3/4 time I am probably as busy as my time will allow.

I had to laugh at this latest topic.  I am JUST a hobby quilter.  I can't tell you how many times already I've had people ask if I would quilt one for them. When I say no, they always say "I'll pay you" and look at me like I'm crazy when I say no again. I always explain that I have another business for making money - this is just for fun and I don't want to make a business out of it.  I refer them to a fairly nearby quilt shop that has a list of quilters.  The last neighbor huffed her way out the door saying "well, be that way".
