Cute, Patti! I'm not any kind of a flower expert, but I'm not sure that lillies grow on stems with leaves like that. Don't they grow from bulbs and have leaves like tulips and daffodills?
All I know is that I'm loving the way Sue designed this whole quilt! Maybe they are Lillius Suegarmanus?

And the February Daisies should probably have lots of petals, but then they would be really hard to applique. Black-eyed Suegarmanus?

I think they are all just wonderful funky, fun flowers, and I'm glad that Sue made them possible. :D

I got Sharon's stabilizer and halo today!
On the surface, her stabilizer looks and feels a lot like Ricky's. I've ordered some from Jukebox too, and when it gets here, I'll experiment with the three of them.

I don't have a quilt ready for machine quilting right now, but took some scraps and tried out the halo, and think it's going to work GREAT! It's heavy enough to help move the fabric and it's covered with a kind of plastic that really grips the surface! So far, with minimal experimentation, I'd say it's a good buy!

PS....I've been having trouble with the link to her YouTube site about the halo today, but you may want to try to check it out:

Margo thanks for the Sharon Schambers needle turn video, the blue bird pattern. I have been watching, and I like her technique. Will have to try it. Thanks again.

I've recently learned of this technique from Sharon's website and look forward to trying it when the stabilizer gets here.
Go to the "free area" of her site and watch the video about needle turn applique with the blue bird!

Wanda - I can't wait to hear what you think of Sharon's stablizer!!!!!! I went to JoAnn's and found some Pellon feather weight stablizer..... it was pretty good to use, but I was soooooooooooooooooooooo disappointed with my results :shock: :oops: (I really distorted the background fabric sticthing down one of the stems with multiple leaves). I was so disappointed and know that I will have to take all the stiching out and start over.... that I DIDN'T quilt tonight!!!!! :x I don't know if I didn't baste enough, or I held the fabric too tight and distorted it in the process..... but it was disappointing. ok, so after letting myself have a little hissy fit, I know that this is all a part of the learning process and that I need to "get back on the horse" and try it again! :) :) :)

Margo,

Please do give us a comparison of the Stable Stuff and Sharon's stabilizer. They sound very similar. I'd like to give her method a try--I've tried every other method!

That's what I'm planning for the April block! I may also order some from Jukebox quilts. I want to compare how they are to work with, and how the prices compare. Sharon's comes in a 5 yard piece, but I don't know how wide it is. Jukebox's is by the yard but is 60" wide. Ricky's is available on a wide roll or in packages of 8-1/2"x11" pieces ready to run through the printer. Maybe they are really similiar except for the size, which may dictate which ones you would want to use for any specific project. I'll let you know what I learn.

Well, the stabilizer from Sharon Schamber is here. They are really quick with shipping (I ordered from Sharon's daughter, Cristy at Purple Daisies, http://www.purpledaisiesllc.com) and shipping did not cost much! I really did not expect the order this soon considering that I ordered really late Saturday! I'll let y'all know what I think about the stabilizer.

Happy Quilting,

WandaM, I am with you, the needle turn was way to slow for me, so I decided to try another method. It looks like needle turn, but is faster. At the rate I am goin I will never get caught up.
