Dreaming of Spring Part 2
Antique Tulip Applique Quilt
Have you use the clip block feature before? In a layout like this one, I find it useful. Here is the final quilt (EQ rendition). If you end up making the quilt, I would love to see photos.
St. Cloud Heritage Club Meeting
Thursday evening I was privileged to be able to present my lecture on Specialty Rulers to the quilt guild in St. Cloud.
It was also fun to get first peak at their raffle quilt -- it was amazing with over 3000 pieces in it. I am looking forward to attending their show next fall.
God's Light Warms the Soul
I am currently exhibiting 11 of my quilts in a private showing at North Heights Lutheran Church. The exhibit is entitled "God's Light Warms the Soul". It includes original designs (including Sun Rays, Whim Wham Stars, It's a Mystery and Be My Valentine) along with quilts I made from purchased designs.
The address is:
North Heights Lutheran Church
1700 West Hwy. 96
Arden Hills, MN 55112
The closing date for the exhibit has been extended until the end of March. So there is still time to see the quilts!
Elsa and Anna Quilt Update
The Elsa and Anna panel quilt is now finished. I even have the binding completed. This was a lot of fun to quilt with textures for the clothing, and lots of snowflakes throughout the rest of the quilt. Below are close-ups, so you can get a better view of the quilting.
I received a question on how I lined up the creative fill I completed in Art and Stitch with the actual quilting space on my machine. True confessions -- I didn't. I ended up bringing in the creative fill before clipping. I created a "block" by outlining the clothing using the trace feature on my Intelliquilter. I then clipped the creative fill using my newly created block.

The quilting is amazing! Did you sew bugle beads to the blue dress? I especially love the quilting on the pink cape. Did so much quilting make the little quilt stiff? What threads did you use and what did you put on the backing?

WOW!!! I so needed the tulip instruction today. I am trying to put a design for a wedding quilt for my son in EQ7 and it has 1/2 blocks on the side. I knew nothing of how to do that and you just covered it today! So much info and tools and options I've never seen let alone used before. Thanks so much Kari.That was amazing! I wish I could print it out and sit it beside me while trying to adjust my quilt. Must be time to crack out the notebook and pencil.....

No beading as I consider it too much work. :) The quilt is not stiff. This may be because I used Minky for the back. For the batting I used Hobbs 80/20. Threads were Signature cotton in a variety of colors.
