Hello my Cuties! Hope your day is going well for you. This is my latest QOV top. I won't be quilting it myself, but I will put the binding on, once I get it back. I hope to use the dark navy blue, for the binding, if they include it with the quilt. I think the dark color would be nice. The size is 66 x 80 inches. Anyway, hope you like it and all of you are well-Toogie

Sometimes you may have to resize your pictures. My phone offers that option to post original size or small, medium, large. I also have a photo program on my pc that I can go to resize. I would love to see your pics. I am sure they look great, so I am hoping you keep trying and eventually succeed, in posting. Thank you for commenting and please try again.

You are welcome. If you need any thing else just let me know. I’m happy to help if I can. Have a good day-Toogie

This is a beautiful quilt. Great Job. What size are the finished blocks?

arisann by arisann 24 Jul 2020

I like this, could you share measurements on quilt block so I might make it. I THINK I have one like this but just not sure. It would help to have your measurement on block since all my stuff is still boxed from moving. If you like to share i appreciated it so much.

Sure I don't mind at all.
The blocks are 12 1/2 inch- sending you a pm

You are really getting good! Those sharp points are impressive. Lucky someone to get this beauty.

toogie by toogie 15 Jul 2020

Those points are hard to mess up with the floating stars block. I only wish I had sense enough to use those quilt programs like you have. I have to design in my head. Since I rarely write measurements down they end up being one of a kind or make a duplicate right away. Although I always do something different, so they aren’t just alike.

If I can use those programs, anyone can.

This is stunning! I love the idea of Navy blue binding! It will be perfect! I don't know how you produce quilt so quickly!!! Beautiful!

I started this last week but if you knew how long it lay untouched😉🙄Thank you for 👀

Quilting is my first love, and your fabulous quilt is wonderful to see and enjoy! I'm looking forward to see how you quilt it as there is a lot of space for "fancy" stuff!

I won’t be the quilter on this one. It will go to one of the longarmers that use pantographs. Once in a while one of the ladies will ‘play’ with the spaces and free motion. She’s very good too. She did my The Eagle Has Landed. It’s here in Sewing I think.

Beautiful work Toogie. I am so envious. Of late I have become bored with everything. Need something/someone to motivate me! Hugs. Nan

Wish I could say 'Come on over" but we are keeping to ourselves, still. I'd give you a jump start, by getting you to help me figure out my next one!-lol-Thanks Nan for always looking and commenting.

Another winner, Toogie! You are amazing! I think a dark binding will be great! Hugs*, Deb

Yes the quilter usually sends whatever she uses, on the backing, for me to use. It's because she needs extra to load in her frame. She usually keeps it attached and I trim the quilt or square it up and use the leftovers, for my binding. Thanks Deb for looking/commenting.

Well done Toogie, you do such great work. Love Chris

Thank you Chris, that's sweet of you to say. I don't know how great my next quilt will look. I wanted some more panels and we were out so one of the members said she had two that she wasn't going to do. She said she had had them a while and knew she'd never get them done. I laid them out this morning and told my husband I can see why she was discouraged. The panel is so wonky. Not at all straight or squared. Thing is for me to square up, I will be losing the border and more around the panel but it just can't be helped. Then all the figuring to make 'something' fit. I am wracking my brain this morning-lol

Thank you A. When I don't do anything, I feel so blah.

by asterixsew Moderator 12 Jul 2020

Toogie another beautiful piece of work that you have created.

toogie by toogie 12 Jul 2020

Thank you. I have had this kit since last year. One of our ladies cuts out quilts sometimes, so when she offered this to me, I took it. I dislike the cutting out part. Hard on my hands and back. Her cutting is so precise it makes my piecing together easy. I like sewing behind her.

Toogie, go to Salvation Army or Goodwill or full price at WalMart and buy those risers for children's beds. Put the legs of your cutting tables into those risers, gives you about 10" more height and takes off that back strain. Love your quilt, colors, design, everything. Someone is going to have a pretty quilt. So Americana.

toogie by toogie 13 Jul 2020

I do have those risers on one of my tables I use for cutting. At our quilt group we have cut lengths of PVC pipe and put the legs in that. We use them on several tables for ones wanting to cut. Those are great because you can cut it the height you need. The only drawback you'd need something under the pipes to protect your home flooring.Thanks for looking & advice Betsey!
