Anita's quilts and quilting

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

Quilt finished

In between all the preserving of foods lately, and four days away from home last week, I did manage to finish a quilt.  She brought a verigated thread to use on the front.

Full size quilt

I did a feather design on the outside border.

I did a swag design on the inside border and the circle lord swirls design in the center area of the quilt.

I used a matching thread for the back.  It’s impossible to match a verigated thread color on top to a verigated thread color on the back.  It shows up as a line of polka dots on both sides.  Not good.  It’s better to use a solid on the back for a better look.

I have the next quilt on the machine and have it about three quarters of the way stabilized.  I hope to have it finished in a couple of days.

    I love her fabric choices, and I love how the quilting echoes the curves.

      Thank you. That’s what I thought when I did the CL swirls.
