Anita's quilts and quilting

A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.

Productive day

This is the next finished quilt. It’s all about sports.

So I did a sport theme for the quilting. This is the first border.

The second border.

The third border.

And the fourth border. The extra lines all over the designs are quilter’s chalk.

The pieced blocks got line dancing.

The inside border got flying geese. There could be geese flying over a ball field of clover…. right? The clover is on the sashing.

I got the next quilt ready and onto the machine. Started working on it; but, I realized I would be fighting the machine again. That means a bit of lint someplace. It also occurred to me I will be gone this weekend. Friday, a doctor appointment that could take all day. Saturday, going to the cemetary to visit my sons and my father. Sunday, going to visit Mom in the nursing home.

Rather than just track down one piece of lint to keep quilting, I decided to go ahead and do the thorough cleaning of the machine and table. Hmm…. I don’t want anyone thinking I don’t take good care of my machine. I do clean the bobbin area at every bobbin change. Not thoroughly, just a general cleaning. I oil my machine regularly too. The cleaning I’m talking about doing is the not so routine cleaning. The taking apart everything, clean really well, and put it all back together again cleaning.
