Truly amazing!  I am very jealous - I want to have a long-arm machine to try some fancy quilting, but don't have the $ or the space for it at the moment.  You did a wonderful job - definitely keep posting!

Thank you, I confess to working very hard- especially on the top show quilt.  I've lost count of the hours- perhaps as much as 150.  the bottom quilt took about 20 hours. I am still working on the purple quilt today, it goes to a show called Machine Quilters Exposition in New Hampshire next month.

Here's a tip: In the top quilt, I've used 2 layers of batting, the bottom is a black cotton blend, and the top is a poly for added loft.  When I quilt motifs- and quilt small next to them, it gives me a faux trapunto look.  In the old days they used to cut and stuff the areas to get the trapunto look.

Craftster is such a wonderful supportive site.  I enjoy all the quilts you do, too.

Thanks again, Carla

Oh, My! Those are eye-poppingly awesome!

I never thought I'd ever be more impressed with the back of a quilt compared to the front! With the incredible quilting, the pattern of pieces on the front just becomes distracting! (Not to denigrate the front, it's just that the quilting is THAT good!)

You should make a permanent switch from 'Shy Lurker' to 'Proud Poster' because those are very impressive and you can see the love and passion you put into them!
