Oh I see Cora has already posed the question that is on a lot of minds of late. Whether it's our crazy winter weather, or not much else going on quilting wise, some of us are ready for your next mystery quilt. No pressure of course, just curious. We love following along each week putting the clues together. Living the new fabric lines as well. So fun to see them up into one of your quilts.
Good Morning, Ann! Recently, I purchased a BOM kit from Craftsy, Lynette Jenson's Garden Charms, and was reading and researching the comments of others who are making this project while waiting for the kit. Did you know people are still talking about and recommending your Perfect Points Quilt Along? Thank you for the time and effort that went into that quilt along, and the mystery quilts, I've always admired you for your attention to detail and complete instructions.
Ann. this is gmakitty and I am sad... I have cut my first session pieces and for the life on me I can't find the rest of my fabric, I have 4 pieces and cant find the other two nor can I find where I coded them. the pieces missing for section 5 Kelly and section 6 Indigo.... can you help me please... I have cut the first session and plan to start putting it together tomorrow... my email address is email@example.com....much appreciated if you can help me out/// Always caring GmaKittty
don't know where my question went, or if this was the place to put it, but.............have not yet started my quilt plan is to start it Thursday.... I am going to presume all cutting is done on folded fabric.... being a newbie I have to ask/ gmakitty
For the stuffing, I don't think it needs to be 100% cotton, On the last piece I did, I used cotton acrylic blend, worked fine. If you're able to find knitting cotton no. 8 should work fine, even if it's blended with acrylic. I've seen sites where they sell 100% acrylic for stuffing boutis. It's about the thickness of the cottton, knowing that when you stuff the cotton is double, so if you can only find a thinner cotton, cut 2 lengths, put them together in a needle or use the lasso method, & then they will be doubled to go into the motifs & tunnels. My boutis with the dragonfly, I used a grey yarn. Hope this helps.
Thankyou Ann for your kind comments on my boutis. The boutis of Dec. 2012 (the last one I did) is about 30 inch square & it took me 6 months, working on it daily to complete. It isn't difficult, but it can be time consuming depending on how detailed the pattern is!! I didn't use baptiste as I didn't have any on hand when I decided to do it, so I just used a light weight cotton. I haven't used roving, (had to look it up to see what it was lol). On this one I used a cotton wool. On another small project I used wool.
Hope to see your finished project when you get around to doing it!

Hi Ann I love quilting as well. There is such a feeling of accomplishment with every quilt I finish. I especially enjoy incorporating applique or machine embroidery with my quilts. I just finished a quilt for my grandson called let sleeping cats lie. I am currently working on a quilt for my daughter that she helped design. I then want to finish a quilt called Flower Basket that I started last year. I am new at free motion machine quilting but I love it. I use basting spray to speed up the process. I have a question for you do you have an easier way to change the size of a quilt? I find many I like but they are usually 60 X 68 to big for a baby quilt and a bit to small for a twin. I usually just add another column or row but that doesn't always work for all designs.
Hi Ann, I have been trying unsuccessfully to change my e-mail name. When I get the letter that says to click onto the enclosed site to confirm the e-mail name change, it doesn't do anything! Could I please have some helpful hints from someone. thanks so much. Vanda/MI
