A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.
Yea! Finally have another quilt finished. I wanted it done much sooner but it seems life had other plans for me.
Actually, my goal (as semi-retired) is to have either 3 or 4 quilts finished a month. Three if the quilts are large and 4 if the quilts are small. If I look at it that way then I’m almost on track with my goals for this year.
This one is very large. It barely fits on the cutting table when folded in half. I believe the owner will be happy to see it finished after such a long time waiting. I hope she likes the designs I chose for it. I used a silver grey thread which I felt complimented the red, black, and cream colors of the quilt.
I did line dancing in the center area.
I did a swag design on the red border and lace on the white border.
I did a curly vine design on the outside border.
Ok, you may not be able to see the silver grey thread in those photos so here’s a look from the back. I think it looks very pretty on the black.
Here’s a look at the line dancing in the center area.
I’m going to get started piecing two t-shirt quilts I’ve been commissioned to do. I plan to put the steps on my blog for others to follow if you are interested in making one of your own. The steps are fairly easy so even a beginner could make one.
Even if you don’t make quilts yourself you may want to know what’s involved. It will give you knowledge in case you hire a quilter to create one for you. The more you know about the construction the better you’ll be at working out the details.
I’m headed back to the kitchen. I’ve got more canning and freezing to do. I hit the jackpot at the discount bin and don’t want to loose any of it.
