That's a cutie. Bet you were grinning while you were stitching on that one.
That's such a sweet quilt!
Thank you everyone! It was a lot of fun to make and yes, I was grinning after it was finished!

I don't even know if there are ballpoint needles for long arms.
I'm behind so don't know if this has been addressed. There are ball point needles for longarms and several well renowned longarmers swear by them.
I took a serge class a couple of years ago and they showed an example of what happens to knits sewn with a regular needle. With washing and wear the area around the seams were pretty tattered. For knits always use a ballpoint.
Your cathedral windows quilt looks beautiful.
Today was a day for playing with simple shapes and bright colors. One finished project has been named "Painted Daisy" (I used to grow the real thing decades ago; they were lovely delicate pastel-ish flowers with feathery ferny foliage). The bird is a Blue-eyd Red-Beaked Dimple-Bottomed Tailless Squatter. He is a flightless bird straight out of my imagination. Can you tell I used leftover parts from the "daisy" to create the Squatter?
This pot is full now. Time to move on to projects for another pot. Plus DD has asked me to make her a dragonfly for her garden.
(My Hoosier grandpa once startled me by calling a dragonfly a gallynipper. I think that offers potential for an interesting creature.)
Those are gorgeous, Judy. :-)
Best part of some of the creative stuff with clay is the smirk on my face when I think of the name for the dumb bird and then carry out the design technique necessary to create what goes with the name. (You might have guessed that "dimple bottomed" is the polite version of what I was really thinking.)

The poor thing had smallpox on his posterior? :-)
