From the longarm today....

Below are pics of a customer's quilt that I finished quilting for her today. It measures 47" x 62" and is all applique except for the borders. I enjoy quilting for her because her applique work is always superbly done.

Irises mean Spring is coming...

I finished quilting this customer's quilt top this evening. I think it turned out really nice looking. It measures 72" x 88", and made out of batik fabrics with the irises appliqued on.

On the longarm today....

Here's a pic of what I'm quilting on this morning. A customer made the top and I'm quilting it for her. The pattern is called a Bull's Eye quilt and has raw edge circles on it so that it frays up nicely after being washed. I'm just doing a meander quilting on the background, and then a circular meander on the circles themselves. I really like the "cabin" look of these style quilts, I need to make one for myself.

The Roman Stone Quilt

I finished quilting a customer's quilt last night that I call, for lack of a better name, the Roman Stone Quilt. I had to sit and ponder for a while how I was going to quilt it, but after I got started on it when a mental plan in mind, it went well and I was really pleased with how it turned out. I love the texture that the quilting gives it. Hope she likes it, too!

A quilt for me.

I spent some time over my Christmas vacation working on a quilt for myself and finished it today. It's king size at 103" square and uses a block pattern called Disappearing Hour Glass by the Missouri Star Quilt Company. I made it using several lines of William Morris inspired fabrics and then quilted it on my longarm. I'm pleased with how it turned out, a good way to start the new year!
