    GREAT WORK FRANCES … did you get it finished in time for Quilt Con ( downloaded but not listened to yet) — Love the Melon Patch block…. I am going to do a ROSE DREAM / LOVER’S KNOT block as soon as I get the templates I designed back. I ordered them from John Flynn company…. I am lazy and want to cut around an acrylic template rather then deal with the paper ones.

    Are you going to applique or piece yours? Maybe I should just go listen then I will know what you said.



    My take on Modern Quilting is it is being shanghaied by the LONG ARM QUILTERS …. As at Huston & Paducha the winners are the one with the most and fanciest/ densest quilting …. I think Quilt Con is going that way too…. dense quilting even if walker foot straight lines …. Younger MODERN- – LONG ARMERS are inventing their own styles but most of the FMQing is still over the top but modern.
    The dense quilting is not for FUNCTIONAL quilts … and a lot of everyday quilters do not do that type of quilting.

    Your quilting looks great!
    An orange peel quilt is also on my list of quilts to make “some day” (Have not heard of the name- Melon Quilt) I was planning to go scrappy but using only 2 colors is also nice!

    I was listening to your podcast at 4 am because I couldn’t sleep. I know what you mean about the joy of sleeping right through. I’m 60 and it IS better than it was a few years ago.
