A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.
Here is the 9th quilt for this year. I finished it a few days ago. I would have posted it sooner but I’ve been feeling bad and sleeping a lot.
I did baby rattles along the border. I use a stencil to mark them.
I did a freehand sort of butterfly on the block centers. It seemed to go along with the whimsical butterflies of the fabrics.
Here’s another one of the freehand butterflies.
I did a freehand bow on the corner stones and ribbon tails on the sashing. The ribbon tails meet at the center point between the corner stones.
I did half bows along the border edge.
Can you see how the ribbons meet at the half way point of the blocks? I do many designs this way when quilting corner stones and sashing. I also helped my SIL to finish a twin quilt for her great grand daughter. I forgot all about taking pictures until she was already gone. It would be the 10th quilt for 2012. The 11th one is on the machine.
My sugar count has been spiking very high lately which is the reason I’ve felt so tired and slept so much. A visit to the doctor yesterday and my medications have been doubled. I know the problem is what I’m eating and when I’m eating it so I’ll have to work on that. I can’t be sleeping 14 hours a day anymore. It’s not productive.
