A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.
I don’t want anyone thinking something is wrong because I haven’t been posting to my blog. I’ve just been busy trying to finish the Christmas rush quilts so I can enjoy the holidays with my family.
Here’s the first quilt finished.
Stitch in the ditch around the characters.
Simple straight lines in the alternate pieces. The owner really prefers only enough stitching to hold it together.
Another one finished. I used a Circle Lord template to do a circle swirls design on this one. The owner chose it. The quilt barely fit onto the machine. It’s a California King.
A view from the back.
The next one finished is a Christmas theme one.
I did Holly leaves on the outside border and a circle design on the inside border.
I did mittens on the outside border.
I did leaves and loops design on the inside borders.
The next one finished. I forgot to take a full photo of the quilt. I did a line danced flower on the inside pieced area.
I did a feather and curl design on the outside border.
Here’s a view from the back.
There were three quilts finished that I failed to take photos of before the owner picked them up. I have only a few left to finish before the holidays. Some are wall hangings and some are large bed quilts.
When I’m in a rush mode I tend to stay away from the computer. I’m too tempted to stay at the computer emailing friends or checking out blogs. I would get nothing done if I gave into the temptations.
One more week and things should settle down for a bit. That’s when I can work on some charity quilts. I’m hoping to get a little organizing done during the holidays. It’s been too long since I actually looked through things to see what UFO or PIG can be completed. I’m looking forward to a new year and some changes. Maybe I can do a little less thinking about food and more about sewing and quilting with the coming of a new year? I also want to reconstruct more of my best tutorial posts.
Right now I’m getting off the computer again. I’m headed into my studio for a few more days of Christmas Rush quilting.
