it is beautiful!
Work Fantastic!! Congrats Carolyns!
Thanks Dilceia hugs
Go,Caroline,go! We're cheering you on, since we haven't attempted such a mega project yet.
Welllllllllllll thanks hugs!!
Wow Carolyn, love the fabrics and embroidery designs, but admit this would scare the heebie jeebies out of me! LOL. Beautiful work :)
done to many to be scared lol but this part bores me .Like the big kid i am lol .I am almost done the quilting .Not bad for 2 days work lol
Just 2 days work! :O oh my gosh Carolyn, I'm going to nickname you Speedy :D this would probably take me 2 years. Hehe
I am putting the binding on right now but i need a computer break lol
Wow. I'm impressed. When I had to do it on a regular machine I did not quilt with such detail. Just straight lines up and down or across. I had to get me a longarm but, your quilt is to big for me. I admire your ability.
thanks i would like a long arm but don't do enough quilts to pay for it lol
Great going Carolyn. Love your ideas. Great pictures. Wish you lived closer I could get you to finish all my ufo Quilts. LOL Hugs Shirley
And i sure would i can't stand having stuff looking at me to finish!!!I just start and finish then on to next projects lol hugs
Way to go. I'm impressed. I hope someday to learn how to quilt on machine.
Its easy :):)
looks like tone of work but an sure you will be done
I am just finishing row 8 one more to go .My goal is done by midnight tonight lol hugs
I have to say I'm impressed that you are able to get a quilt in an embroidery hoop!!! I hand quilt most of my quilts. The ones that I do machine quiltilng on, I do in sections to make them more manageable. I like that you are doing an all over stipple. It makes the quilt look more "quilty" to me. Is all the stabilizers used in the embroidery designs removed before making the sandwich? Are you using any stabilizers when stippilng?
All stab. is remove from the picture and i am just quilting it no stableizer at all just the 3 quilt layers ok
it iwll be beautiful, hugs loralye
Thanks Lor. hugs carolyn
that is a ton of work.... I am impressed.. I send all mine out to the quilter..
can't aford that so i do it myself hugs
Looks like you are doing a super job. Will be beautiful when you finish.
Carolyn, they say that 'need is the mother of invention' and you sure have shown that is true. Excellent job and the blocks look really lovely. Thanks for sharing your tips and progress with us all!
Well i need to sew thats for sure lol hugs
You are really getting good use of the mega hoop. I wouldn't get very far on my 5X7 hoop. lol Did you do the other quilts last Christmas for your boys by free motion?
free motion !!on my sewing machine!!
Thank you very much Carolyn. You are doing such an excellent job. I copied your instructions and am putting them in my tip folder for future use. Otherwise, I would never be able to find this when I am ready for it. I was able to understand your instructions - but that doesn't mean I won't have to ask you questions when I start to do this.
ok no problem i love to help others carolyn
Thanks for the good information. You are really going to town, just think you are over half done. Congratulations.
yes thank-you hugs
this is great info, Carolyn. What size of hoop are you using? I have a 5x7 hoop so I would be limited to a 5x5 stipple I believe...
You are buzzing along like a buzy bee...... buzz buzz.... :)
Love it :)
lol i am using a 5.75 x10 but once its on the machine i can increase it still 20% i am now on row 6 !!and getting bored as the kids say:(:(
Your looking great! and moving along like I knew you would. You have made nice showing on how. I machine hand stippled quilt smaller couple years ago and was not so nice for my hands. My tendons are mess. The hoop idea I have done for purses etc. but not quilt top. I may go for it after New Year as I hope to get software and start teachng myself new tricks soon.
Oh good for u i need someone beside me to show me or pictures i can't get it just from the written word .But i sure do try hugs carolyn
