Yes, Carla, I do.  Both when I handquilt and machine quilt.  I'm not a very good judge, I've found, of quilting in a fairly consistant manner.  And I don't like it if it isn't reasonably even...I know, a little OCD, but I just don't seem to manage it otherwise.  Now, when I machine quilt flowers and leaves, I'm fine, but it's the echo quilting that needles at me.  And so I mark....And hardly ever echo quilt, lol.

Annette i was wondering if you did any marking while you are doing your echo quilting?  It looks so perfect!

It's amazing but I already have 12 of the 16 blocks quilted!  That means if I keep up with this pace, I should be finished the blocks by the end of next week.  Then there are the borders.  This quilt, though lovely, has given me more grief than any other I've ever made.  My next challenge will be what to do with the corners.  I may do what those who came before us did, and that is just run the leaves off the ends as they don't turn the corners nicely-sigh.  This is, I keep telling myself, why we have to have a large inventory of ideas...Creativity?  Guess I'll find out.

Would you believe there snow is melting so fast there was overland flooding in the fields last week.  But today we had snow-again!  Water is still in puddles on the street though and I don't see any Spring flowers up yet.  I love the idea of flowers around all year but the thought of the heat that requires just makes me I'll.  Guess I'm a Northerners thru and thru.  I'll have to live with flowers vicariously through you ladies.

Your block is so beautiful Annette.  I can't wait to see the entire quilt!

Beautiful Annette! I love hand quilting, but I just can't do too much anymore, but I save it for special areas of special quilts.

Annette, it is breath taking!

Oh my word Annette, yes indeed that is a LOT of quilting!  But it looks fabulous!  Beautiful block!

OK...Since a lot of you are also on the handquilting list, this is what I've been quilting on this winter.  I saw Barbara Korengold's magnificent Caswell a year ago, or maybe 2, anyway I went to the Googled images of the Caswell carpet and drew my own patterns.  It was a lot of drawing and erasing but after a while my schooldays art classes came back and it was amazingly easy to do!  Then I did the applique and am now onto the quilting.  And man, this is a LOT of quilting.    I just wanted to share with those who care.  Have a great weekend everyone!

Just testing to see if this thing is working today.  Tried posting on the handquilting site with no luck.
