A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.
Here’s another quilt from the Xmas rush. The first side.
The other side. I really thought I had better photos of this one but they seem to be missing.
I hope you can see the tumbling pumpkins I did on the outside border. I did curling vines and leaves between the pumpkins.
I did a leaf with curl design on the sashing. The design goes out from the corner stone to meet at the center of the block.
The pumpkins got stitch in the ditch and echo lines to represent the up and down grain.
The stitching doesn’t show on the inside (stripe) border but it was a simple straight line design. The lines were sewn piano key style using the stripes as a sewing guide.
I did a simple meander in the block background. Just enough to flatten so the pumpkins stand out better.
Here is another quilt from the Christmas rush. It’s a table topper. I did stitch in the ditch around the applique.
I did a swag design on the outside border and nothing in the background around the applique. The owner prefers minimal quilting whenever possible.
Here is another one. A child’s play quilt with a circus train fabric outside border.
I did a stitch in the ditch around the characters to make those stand out. I sewed a line on the rail road tracks to give it texture.
And line dancing on the blocks. Some child is gonna love their new blankie.
Another Christmas rush table topper quilt. I called it grandma’s house but it could be the gingerbread house too. All I did was stitch in the ditch.
Ok, here is one more photo for today. The quilt currently on the machine is one of my own UFOs.
I’m in the process of stabilizing it so I can work on it. I haven’t decided what design I’ll quilt on it. There’s no hurry to finish it so I can play and have fun with the quilting process. Why did I choose this one instead of something else from my UFOs? Because I had only one batting package left. It was the right size for this one so this one it is. I’ll be piecing together some batting scraps for other UFO quilts. Hmm…. maybe today I’ll call in a batting order.
