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