Longarm quilting and snippets of my life

I’ve tried to post, but I keep getting distracted. I start it many times, then I can’t find the pictures, or I wanted to take a picture of something first…but where’s the camera. You get the idea. I started again this morning, but then I got to cleaning up all the photos that are taking up a lot of space on my computer… then I just ran out of time. So, here I am again, but this time I’m actually going to post something.

I’ve had the pleasure of quilting some beautiful quilts lately, well actually it’s most of the time, but these couple of quilts are very unusual for me. I got this machine embroidered “candlewicking” quilt. It scared me to death. What am I possibly going to do with this? It’s all white… very white, and really pretty. We decided that it didn’t need my quilting to make it beautiful, it already was. I wasn’t sure how I would go about stitching up to the millions of little knots, but it was actually easy peasy lemon squeasy. Here’s a few pics. It’s hard to take a picture of white. I was so pleased with how it turned out, and so was my customer.

Just recently, I finished this fun, whimsical Alice in Wonderland quilt. She will paint a face on the mad hatter, then add any quilting around those elements as is needed. I love quilting for her, she’s such an artist, and she appreciates my work. This isn’t a very big quilt, but as you can see, there’s a ton of stuff on it and a TON of work for me. It turned out great.

I keep plugging along, trying to stay focused. Business is great and I’m very fortunate.

Don’t forget, you can click on any of the pictures to make them bigger. Thanks for stopping by.
