Quilting Donna's 'Golden Days of Hollywood' Quilt

Can you see the pantograph, and can you tell what it is?

I'm using #60 Bottom Line thread top and bottom, pale silvery-gray on top and cream in the bobbin.

The pantograph is made up of drama masks, and is appropriately named 'Drama'.

Stems for the Baskets of Lilies Quilt

Today I cut 75 stems for the Baskets of Lilies quilt.  Using the freezer-paper-and-starch method, I turned under and pressed the edges of the 50 curved stems.  I'll be able to fold under and press the seams on the 25 straight stems without using freezer paper.

Basket of Lilies Block

This is the Basket block pattern that will alternate with the appliqu├ęd Petals block in the Basket of Lilies quilt.  Now for the fun part:  pulling out fabric!  I'm going to make it scrappy.  There are 25 of these 18" blocks.

Cutting Petals for the 'Baskets of Lilies' Quilt

216 petals are cut for a quilt I designed in EQ7, which I'm going to call 'Baskets of Lilies'.  I used the Sizzix eclips2 cutter that my children gave me for Christmas last year.  It's quite the nifty (and handy) toy!

Here's the EQ7 design:

Quilting Finished on Lydia's 'Ladybug Landing' Quilt

Last night I completed the quilting on Lydia's 'Ladybug Landing' baby quilt.  

Can you see the 'Lil Ladybug' pantograph?
It just didn't show up much, not on the busy flowered fabric on the front of the quilt, and not on the polka-dot back, either.

Quilting Lydia's 'Ladybug Landing' Quilt

Daughter Lydia made this cute baby quilt, called 'Ladybug Landing'.  I'm doing custom quilting on it, and am about half done.

There's a 'Lil Ladybug' pantograph on the flowered fabric, but the fabric is so busy, you can't even see it.

Customer's Baseball Table Runner

Today I quilted a baseball table runner that my grandchildren's piano teacher pieced.
