I am new to Ohio Quilters. Just wondering why the blog posts are so old? (2011). Do you all not blog, and just comment?

Here's the quilting on it...you can see the wiggly lines better..

Gwen! Sew nice to hear from you! Happy Birthday to your daughter and a long arm, too. You've been having fun with it, I assume.  No way do I have room for one but would sure love one. Anything bigger than a lap size goes to a lady up the road. I can't even seem to master FMQ on my domestic...

Hello all! The next 23 months can't go fast enough. I'm totally ready for retirement. Just done.

The frame is 13' long, takes a big space in the living room, but that's ok.

It came from a dealer in PA, so I watched a lot of Jamie Wallen utubes, with loading a quilt, etc...He has an Innova, but a quilt is still loaded the same way. I was terrified! to run the machine and do any quilting, but I took a deep breath and dived in, giving myself pep-talks with "it's just a machine"...

Here's the quilt off the frame. There is a LOT of negative space, so the challenge was how to quilt it.  I chose to try feathers, and the space was so "expansive", so the feathers are too.  I did wiggly lines on the blue blocks instead of in-the-ditch ruler work; very forgiving that way. I watched a utube from 'Forever Quilting"who showed that, so I followed her idea. 

Well, I've talked your ears off, so I'll stop now ; D

Hi Janis! and thank you, and thanks, Carol! 

Yup, finally got a long arm; the Q24 Bernina.  A dealer offered me a floor model for a great price, panto kit included, and with a Bernina card, I have five years to pay it off, interest free. I paid several "installments", then put the balance on the card, so the balance is much lower now. It was offered on the card as a promotional buy, so that helped a lot!  It came from the Bernina dealer in Hinkletown, PA.  They brought it to me in June and set it up.

What a gorgeous quilt, Gwen. Did you say you got a long arm? What brand did you buy. You are very, very talented.

Oh my goodness, Gwen -- spectacular as always!  Happy birthday to your daughter!!!

Comment by Gwen/OH on September 7, 2019 at 8:28am

Hi everyone,

Happy belated b-day Carol!  LOVE those cookies, she is in her "zone" making them. We can relate! 

I finished an art piece this morning, for my daughter who loves a poem about one, so, this goes with the book I bought her for her birthday this week.  The fish is made with chiffon. Measures 33" x 44" 

Your pink turtles are so cute!  I finished a bed quilt for a cousin and sent that to her (finally got a long arm so it was good practice on the bed size).

I hope all is well with everyone!
