That is great to hear that the two of you finshed it Mine is on my bed this past week end hubby sister came to vist and ask to see it because I would post things on facebook about when she saw it said I could sell it for a lot in Pa. because I used Penn State fabric how this come from some one that dose not know why I spend so much time and money on quilting and do not know why I would do it Happy
Congratulations to Mary and Nan! It must be the month to finish! I am done quilting mine, and will be squaring it up today to get ready for the binding! I will blog and post a picture when it is done! I am going to enter it into the Vermilion County (IL) Museum quilt show, which has a deadline fo June 24!
Happy day... On Monday I also finished quilting and binding my Stars for a New Day. What I can see of Mary's quilting she did a great job. Just wish I had access to a long arm quilter. But I don't so I had to use my good old Bernina 440. Quite a job but it was all worth it.
I'll try to get a picture soon and post it. Istitched in the ditch around all the stars and geese, free motioned the floral pattern. I had purchased the kit in the quilt shoppe. Then I decided I needed to make it larger and couldn't get any of the fabric so I added a nine inch border that I just love. Hope to enjoy it on the bed next winter. Keep on stitchin everyone.

One of these days I'm going to get a better picture to put on my profile. Just hate the one I have now...
Finally finished my 2009 TQS BOM. What a feeling of satisfaction! I completed piecing the top in February and finally had time to quilt it this past week- hand guided quilting on my Gammill longarm. See my profile for examples of my quilting.

Wool has been my choice. I hear king sized are in short supply right now. My other option would be silk which would help with the weight. Interesting that the daily blog today is about batting, and wool seems to be the preference. I'd like to hear from those experienced with bamboo as well. I have a feeling it will be wool.
Thanks for your input. Sally
At noon yesterday, 2/2/10, I finished Stars for new Day with the final border strip. I was caught up until our Nov. trip to Thailand, and then I had to enlarge it to king sized. I can't wait to get it to the long arm quilter. This puppy is just too large to push around under a home machine. Any suggestions for batting for a 98 x 108 quilt? Wool is my preference, although silk would be luxurious. Has anyone tried bamboo or combination in a large quilt? Thoughts please. Sally
