Can't get enough of making scrappy quilts. 

diamondquilt_aiid1088659 - Copy.jpg  Bright Bold Diamonds diamondquilt_aiid1088660 - Copy.jpg I called this long arm sequence "Squirrel Feathers".  I begin with a swirl, then add feathers around the swirl, then echo a bit and find another spot to start another swirl.  The feathers around the swirl represent the movement of a squirrel's tail, and the swirl itself is the squirrel's body.  

I changed the quilting sequence slightly with "Fish Feathers" on the Blue Denim Quilt - (see below).  The swirl became the swirling water, and the split feather became a fish tail splashing.   Resized PhotoBlueJeansQuilt25.jpg  OK--Back to the Gray w/Diamonds Quilt photos . . . blocks are 8" squares of gray, snowballed corners with 3" colorful squares.  Looking back at my notes I wrote down, 132 blocks.  Added large two piece border to finish around 92 x 104.diamondquilt_aiid1088661 - Copy.jpg  diamondquilt_aiid1088663 - Copy.jpg  diamondquilt_aiid1088664 - Copy.jpg 
I gave the quilt to DH Jon for Valentines Day.  After this photo, I folded up the quilt and stored it away.  I was worried Buddy our dog who has already chewed holes in two other quilts on our bed would go after this one too.  Later that year I sold this quilt at a show.  I called up DH Jon and told him, "hey, I sold a quilt today . . . .yah . . . yah, the one I made for you."

Your quilts are just lovely and the quilting is so pretty!  I'm not at that level yet, but will hopefully get there with more quilting!  You seem to be a very quick piecer!  It takes me much longer to get one put together.

Mrs. D. That’s a beautiful quilt and quilting. I couldn’t do the same with a domestic
machine. Lucky to get large throw quilted.

I have quilted on 2 of my treadle machines, a Singer 15-88 and 237. They do a very good job with the walking foot and free motion quilting. I really wish that the White Rotary treadle took modern feet, it would be fabulous for quilting.
