Anita's quilts and quilting

A semi-retired professional longarm machine quilter

Another one finished

This quilt didn’t take as long as I thought it would after getting it stabilized.
I did simple meandering on all the blocks and a loop design on the sashing around the outside.  The reason I didn’t do a design on the inside sashing is because of really large hard knots from the intersection of the squares.  Hitting one of those knots would have broken a needle.
The reason for the meandering is because of this on some of the blocks.  Padded, thick, and very cute.


No way to quilt over these and too small an area to quilt a design around them.
I’ll be piecing together the two memory quilts today. I also have an appointment later today.  I’m hoping to get those two quilt tops finished so the owners can see them in the next few days.  It’s their last chance to make changes before the quilting is done.

    It sounds like your mother is in a better place for the staff– she's a lost little girl instead of a mean, uncontrollable woman. I hope that she gets to a place where she feels safe and happy.

    The quilt looks really good.

    I am glad to see that sometimes you just “meander around” things. especially a memory quilt. and when there is a chance of a “broken needed” i ALWAYS avoid it like the plague.
    As to your mom. well. . it might be an “easier” stage to deal with. BUT. oh, the HEARTACHE. I can FEEL that one.
    sending you hugs and prayers.

    I'm sorry to hear your mother isn't doing well. She does sound a bit more manageable, though.

    I was interested to see the t-shirt quilt you quilted. I have one laying here to do & will be doing some sort of meandering or loopy design as well, mostly because of rhinestones on some of the shirts. First I have to repair pulled apart seams. The lady who made it is legally blind & doesn't always know she isn't catching both fabrics in the seams.
