Wave On Wave

Wave on Wave is a new panto I ordered from Urban Elementz.
This quilt was pieced by Rae and she donated it to the guild for a comfort quilt. Since I am still waiting for my  Bliss upgrade to arrive I had time to quilt this one up. I am really not happy with how my longarm is moving on it's wheels anymore, I have a death grip on the handles and my swirls even following a panto are sometimes coming out square. I can hardly wait to have the new Bliss rails under my machine so I can have better control of my stitches again. 

We used Dream Puff batting on this quilt and So Fine thread.

Wave on Wave panto.

It is the August long weekend here which means summer is half over. We are enjoying a break in the heat but it is suppose to warm up again by the end of the week so I am looking forward to a few more days of warm swimming weather before the lake cools off again.


  1. What a pretty quilt and the panto is just perfect. I am amazed at how beautiful a job you can do when your rails are so worn! Just wait til you get your bliss, you will be flying! The lake & views are stunning. Thanks for sharing!

  2. The is a really neat panto, thanks for sharing it!

  5. I love your blog and all your pictures~ they are great !! all the pictures on the ice, rock and this one on the dock.... I was wondering what kind of dye you use when you create your own fabric by dying it yopur self?

  6. Hi Kathy,
    I use MX Procion dyes and have a tutorial on my sidebar called 'Low Immersion Dyeing' that describes the process and what chemicals I use to dye. Hope that helps!
