In 2010, TQS will treat you to not one, but two Sue Garman Block-of-the-Month quilts! Both quilts--one applique and one pieced--are bright and cheery, sure to be showstoppers on a bed or wall. Once again, Sue will offer lots of instruction and tips along with the patterns. Be ready: This is "the year of quilting" as Sue helps you enliven your quilts with many quilting options.
Don't miss out on the fun and learning available to you through the TQS BOM quilting community. Click here for the fabric requirements so you can be ready when we launch both patterns on January 1, 2010. (Word to the wise: We sold out our 2009 BOM quilts quickly, so be sure to get your 2010 kit(s) early by visiting the TQS Shoppe.) We are very excited to offer you this opportunity and look forward to you seeing your work as the year progresses.
Thanks everyone! I wish I could be more creative and innovative with my quilting. I don't seem to be able to come up with any original ideas for quilting AT ALL. Thank goodness for the other quilters who can, because then at least I can get ideas to use. Sometimes the designs that long armers do are fairly easy to reproduce on the domestic, but sometimes they are not! Those circles for the large feathered wreaths just about drove me crazy. (Although I don't know if those are easy on the long arm machine or not.) At this point, I'm just glad to be more than halfway through, and I hope I can come up with something I like for the final border!
I'm still plodding away, machine quilting on my domestic (Bernina 440) machine. I've looked at Sue's wonderful quilting and decided that I just couldn't/didn't want to have quite such dense stitching on mine. I still have a long way to go, but this is where I am now. The entire center is quilted and I'm almost finished the border of small stars. I'm still not sure what I'm going to do on the final solid border.
