Selling my Circle Lord items

Image
Because I now have Intelliquilter installed and running on Black Bart - my Nolting 24" Pro longarm, I am selling all my Circle Lord items. The following are for sale. If you are in the Kansas City, MO area, I will give a 10% discount if I don't have to package and ship items. All prices are plus shipping.

I have the following giant templates that come in 3 interlocking pieces to fit various needs. All of these were sold to me as king-size, and I’ve never had a quilt larger than them even when I had a 14’ table. I’m asking $150 a set,plus shipping.

At my house this is what is entailed in blocking a large quilt:






I hate the tremendous backache from doing this, but I need to look straight down on the rulers/quilt to get everything in the right spot.You have to do it all at once or the quilt dries out.

Now to do a final trimming of the borders, make binding and a hanging sleeve, then actually put them on, handsewing them down. I wanted to enter this quilt in the Greater KansasCity Regional Quilt Festival WHY???

Happy quilting,
Becky



Many Friday finishes

We added Intelliquilter to my longarm (Black Bart - a 24" Nolting Pro). In learning it I have finished up a LOT of small UFOs that I didn't remember existing. I used to make small quilts out of my scraps so I could remember the large quilt since I give so many away. These are my latest finishes:











Now I'm starting a wedding quilt for my DH's son. I need to finish it entirely before I go to MQS mid-May. 
Happy Quilting, Becky
