Lana Lemur Quilt Continued from The Quilt Yarn

Well, it's been a while again. After a somewhat rocky start on the quilt, I am now on my way

This is going to be much harder than I imagined. I am following Claudia Pfeil's demonstration in one of the classes that was shown on The Quilt Show. This class is available as a DVD called 'Claudia's (P)Fillers. In the class, Claudia is demonstrating how to create fillers effortlessly using her longarm machine, going from one to the other using pebbles, lines and other geometric fillers.

It looked so easy! When I finally started it, it ...

I ran out of ideas for the delicate border of the doilie, so left that alone. If I had stitched that down I think it would have turned out too flat. Could not resist though and hyperquilted a little bit in the feathers, then decided that that was enough.

Since then, I've made many more masks to donate - I'm closing in on 1,000 masks - and about 40 more masked hexagons. So here's the finished quilt, with a total of 73 masked hexagons, all socially distanced. My free, revised ...

Glorious and Free from Night Owl Quilting

I was very lucky to get the opportunity to have some free motion fun on this fabulous quilt made by Gail.  The pattern is Glorious and Free by Quilter on Fire.  Gail adapted the pattern slightly to make it fit her size requirements.

I knew the maple leaf needed to be the star of the show so I used a curls for the veins.

The remaining red section got a complimentary curling design, and the blue background got a wood grain design.  Horizontal "wind" fill in the white and to top it all off a nice leafy feather in the ...

Heartfelt Wholecloth Progress from The Quilt Yarn

Nearing the end of my Heartfelt Wholecloth quilt. This quilt was designed by Kelly Ashton and can be found on the Handiquilter website under the Ruler of the Month Club information.

Only the four corners left
This has been an extraordinary intense workout of all 6 rulers of the Ruler of the Month Club 5 and was an excellent opportunity to get further acquainted with the Capri 18. There are a number of things that I tried on this wholecloth making use of some of the new features, i.e.

- stitch regulation: I used stitch regulation for the the frames ...
