Thanks for the compliment on my hexagon quilt. The fabrics were just a wide variety of Civil War reproduction prints.
Your welcome hun.... you did a fabulous job on those tumbler quilts
Hi, Cathy. I finished my Quilts banner and finally got some ribbon today. I tried to send a picture with this message but will have to post it to the Machine Embroidery Group Photo. Thanks for sending me in the right direction. I love it! Sharon
Thanks, Cathy, for the wondful comment on my test block! I had ordered some charm squares on Etsy from Scarborough, England......April Showers by Bonnie and Camille is the HST fabric! I've been pondering for at least a month on what to create with just 21 precious squares. When I received my new McCalls Quilting Magazine...there the pattern was in the back of the magazine!!!
Hi, Cathy. Thank you for the tip about the double stabilizer. I'll do that. My file I downloaded was zipped and I could not get it to unzip, so I wrote to Kate at Big Dreams. She was nice enough to send me the instructions via email so I'll start mine tomorrow. Can't wait. I'm not done with my two quilts yet, but don't want to wait for them to be done. I bet I have mine hanging in my room tomorrow. They also have one with embroidery thread spools. I'll do one of those, too. Thanks for info and encouragement. Sharon
Hi, Cathy. I was just playing with the ITH project. So cute. I did not receive any instruction with my download that I can find, and think I can figure most of it out. I'm a little confused about when to add the backing piece to back of hoop, and also whether to put any batting on the front before I start adding my fabric appliques. Did you use batting? And is it best to put the backing piece on after the letter is embroidered? I think that's what might be intended. Thanks for any suggestion you have. Sharon
Cathy I just saw your Easter egg avatar photo and I had to tell you we had one like that when I was little. Until I decided it looked delish and licked it and bit off a flower. Made me smile thinking of it!
Cathy F thanked for this post
Thanks so much. I wasn't familiar with that site at all. I thought I'd seen just about everything!!
Hi Cathy! I responded to your comment on my Album picture. Thanks so much for your nice comment. I do hope it turns out as good as what's on the paper. I posted a picture of the package in my Album so you can see it in case you want to pick one up.
Thanks, Cathy for the compliment on the sailboat quilt. I copied off of RiverMomm's quilt. I just did different quilting. She has other great jellyroll quilts with appliques in her album. They are inspiring.
