Currently on the longarm....

A while back (ok, it was a LONG while back), my mother-in-law showed me a quilt top that she had found since she knew of my love of quilting.  I offered to take it and quilt it for her, so she happily agreed.  Well, I forgot about it and this evening my wife told me that her mother had asked about it.  Panic!  So I searched around the quilt studio and found the top (thank goodness) and started quilting it this evening.  The fabrics in it are classic 1930s, so this top is about 70-80 years old.  I'm just doing a meandering quilting on it with white thread and white backing.  Need to get it done soon so that I remain her favorite son-in-law (well, ok, I'm her only son-in-law).  :)


  1. That quilt is absolutely gorgeous!!! And I found you on Quilting Board just now and saw you had a blog and I was blown away to see a (I mean this in the most flattering way) man long arm quilting. My husband hangs out with me in my quilting room and enjoys watching me quilt. He always has to come see what stage I am on the quilt. He bought me two quilt kits for Christmas and I love them. I have a Bernina 830 and it came with a long arm table and I have yet to take it out of the boxes (1 1/2 years) because I think it is really hard to put a quilt top, batting, and the back on the table. It looks like a lot of hard work and you have to be so perfect putting everything on it. So, now I am going to read your blog. Jeanne

    1. Hi Jeanne, and welcome to my blog! I'm glad you stopped by! I love quilting, it's "what I do" to keep myself sane (well, as sane as I can be) and I think of the fabrics like paint from a tube - they're my artist medium. :) Thanks for the kind words!
