Jan 22: Quilt is here.
Jan 24: Finally opened the package and posting this gorgeous quilt. My photos don't do it justice. Maddie's are better.
Jan 28: Emailed for quilt details.
Feb 09: Emailed again for quilt details.
Feb 22: Madeline is alive! Just working very long hours. A Rose is a Rose--going to do up a rendition with this pattern on this quilt starting at 7". Wanting a medium density that won't overpower the quilt itself. My kind of fun.
Mar 02: Finally getting around to working on this design. Did quilt rendition of the blocks and quilt size but no where near Madeline's artistry.
Mar 4-9: Having worked on the pattern size for several days, we have a final plan.
Mar 12: Started prepping process.
Mar 13: Loaded, ready to baste. When prepping the top, realized we have a major problem with too much bulk in the seam intersections every 10". Have some ideas of how to deal with I need to work out with Mattie.
Mar 14: We have decided to do custom blocks which will avoid the trouble spots. All planned so now just have to execute it. Quilting. First row done.
Mar 15: Rows 2 - 6 done.
Mar 16: Quilted. Binding is attached. Boxing it up. Hope to ship tomorrow.

Oh yeah!!! Custom is not my favorite thing to do. I think there is a note to that effect elsewhere on my site. We had no choice here. Spent days getting the pantograph like we wanted it only to find out I couldn't longarm over her seam intersections -- too thick. Literally a work around that turned out quite nicely. Where there is a will, there is usually a way. I think Maddie is as glad as I am thst her quilt is on the way to California.
