Anita's quilts and quilting

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

Working on the issue quilt

I have this one on the machine and stabilized.

I’ve worked on the outside border too. It has a friendly border….. it waves.

I used a design that let me ease in as much fullness as possible without too many tucks.

I would have done more on this quilt but I had Ladybug over the weekend. Geeze, there is a reason old women don’t have babies….. we can’t keep up with them anymore. We love them, we want to be with them, but we are so glad we can give them back and rest from the visit.

  1. I have a question re: batik and foundation piecing. I want to make a scrap-like batik fabric string quilt. Using your suggested method. Can I use used fabric softner sheets? I love reading your blog, do it daily. Hate to see you give up patron quilting, but can fully understand. Hope you will go into the teaching phase of quilting. Will you give lessons on your quiltingmachine ? MJ

    Wow. I thought it was only my house with leaves turning and starting to fall off. Makes me want to start winter preparations as well.

    I've noticed the same thing here with the trees and I'm across the country from you. I just thought that maybe I hadn't looked before, but it is interesting. What does that say for global warming. Maybe now it's time for global cooling. Although these switches happen every 30 years or so.

    hmm, I haven't really looked at the trees, However the big black Lab and the long haired cat are shedding outrageously. The poor cat is full of nappy spots as she can't handle the shedding. Perhaps we had best get ready for winter. I don't think we have had summer yet, truth be told. It has not gotten over 85,, well, it has not, yet.
