WOW...too bland a word for your pretties...such a fine use of color, too. We have similar tastes in our choices, so of course I love seeing yours. Just awesome and inspiring me to get back to quilting some of mine that have been waiting to be finished.
Oh Annette, I am so glad I popped in here this afternoon! It's absolutely stunning! Love all the embroidery and quilting you did to make this quilt something spectacular. You are so right they sure do take tenacity. I was just telling Lynne this week I feel good about finishing BG but Annette has several under her belt.......................I just can't imagine. I am sure your family knows how much they mean to you and they will cherish having them someday.
Annette, your quilt is really stunning and all done by hand! I really like Away From Home also. My DH's cousin and his wife stopped by yesterday and I learned that she likes to quilt and it seems like she wants to learn applique. I'd love to show her to show her how but she lives over an hour from me in Dayton, OH. She does come to quilt shops in Columbus so maybe I'll get a hand applique convert yet.
We will have to see what we can do about getting together in the summer Annette- it would be fun. I am sure we will have lots to talk about. I would love to meet Diane as well.
We were very fortunate with the flood quilts- the long arm quilters were very generous with their time and even their materials- I learned lots about quilting that I did not know - especially about long arm machines which I know absolutely nothing about - other than they can create beautiful quilt patterns on quilts. I don't have the space for a long arm machine but I do admire the gorgeous designs that quilters can create with them. I would love to do a few more charity quilts but I am still making wedding quilts ( post wedding quilts for three separate weddings including our son's and daughter in laws). I have never been quite so far behind as I have with these wedding quilts so I hope no one else I Know decides to get married for another year or so- maybe then I will finally catch up LOL.. In the meantime I am working on a couch quilt for a friend who is retiring this June.. I enjoyed last week off as I had spring break . I did make some headway on the quilts - I hope to get a little done tonight too. Be well. Regards, A
hI Annette, I saw a photo of your quilt in the Red Deer Show- wow what a stunning piece of art you created and very deserving of the accolades. I am sorry that I did not get to see it in person. The show looked beautiful from the Prairie Points quilt shop pictures. I hope you are well and that things are great with you and yours. Perhaps in the summer when I get to Red deer we will get a chance to meet in person. I posted on my page a photo of the flood quilt that Diane Gunter and I created together for quilts for Calgary. warmest regards, Anna
No I didn't do the Celtic Solstice but I loved your interpretation ?I am in Sault Ste. Marie,Ontario,on the border of Michigan and Canada were the 3 Great Lakes meet?we have tons of snow here and no sign of it leaving?Keep up the beautiful quilting.
Not a problem. The conversions are located with the download for fabric requirements. It would be the one prior to the first block instructions. There's four pages off fabric yardage requirements for each of the color combinations according to then character, then two pages that give instructions for what system you're using. She has five methods listed with rotary sizing in the second column. Hope this helps you find it.
Annette, I just went to the page that comes up with the website I gave you. Down towards the bottom. left there is a line that says "how do I sign up" click on that, fill in. your info. then you should get a welcome email from her that will open the links to the instructions. Then have fun. If you want the specific fabric lines for Downton Abbey, check online with 'Pacific Fabrics.." That is where I ordered mine from. Great shipping (at least in the states ) .don't know about shipping to you. Stay warm, saw how cold it is up your way!?
Go to the sign up page then you should get an email back from her that will then take you directly to the page with aside bar with all the links listed. Download them from there. If you can't find the sign up page try emailing her directly. Good luck. I will go to her page and see if I can find the way to get you there. I signed up through my local quilt shop. It was easier than her website.
The Downton Abbey quilt is by Ebony Love. and will only be on her site for one more week. She will remove all the patterns on the 12th. So here is her web address, http://lovebugstudios.com/downtonabbey. That should take you directly there where you can sign up and then download and print off all the clues/instructions. Have fun with it. The blocks are larger on this one., but the completed quilt is very nice.
