I had saved a handful of pictures that I had gotten from this site. They were close ups of Janet's quilt showing the quilting. Now I can't find them on my computer or this site. Does anyone remember where they were?
I had kept uptodate with the BOM until December.....so I still need to attach the top and bottom borders, finish the applique where there were overlaps and of course quilt.

Happy New Year to all of you! Kitty.

Rita, your quilt is fantastic and it looks like you will be able to enjoy it for the holidays! :)

As for the lines staying with pounce, Hancy's pounce pad instructions provide helpful hints, among them one that says that "if you have trouble with the chalk rubbing off the fabric too soon, spray the chalk outline lightly with an alcohol based aerosol hairspray, it will stay on until you wash it off." Of course, that only helps if you plan to wash your quilt, but certainly is a tip worth considering, especially since using the pounce pad is quicker than marking every line.

Lois, here's a link that should bring you right to it:

thequiltshow.com/community/photos/photo?albumid=11450021&groupid=100007&photoid=127350

Pamela, that's where I get my thread. If you are using it just remember that because it's an embroidery thread you will need to reduce your top tension. I reduce mine to about 1 or 2 and I use a 90/14 embroidery needle.

OK I am lost. Trying to see Rita's BOM and went to "Member BOM Quilts" under see quilts. Don't know how to find it without looking through everything. Can someone please give me a clue. Sorry, to be such a pain.

Rita thanks for the info on thread. I've not used Hemingworth embroidery thread, but I've just seen it at the Button co and will be ordering it to quilt my BOM 2014. Your quilt is so unique both the way that you have interpreted the pattern and the quilting.
Best Wishes Pam
