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

Another December quilt

Here is another quilt I finished in December.  Can you see three blocks to form this design?  Umm…. I’m a quilter, not a photographer. Great quilts. Good stitching.  Bad photos.

After it was all stabilized, I started by doing a ribbon design on the border.

That design just would not do.  Too much space not quilted.  I wasn’t happy with it at all.  So I picked it all out.

Then worked another design.  Yeah this one was much better.  This photo was taken after the quilt was finished.

Here is the first of the pieced blocks.   This one makes up most of the quilt top design.

This is the second block. I believe I remember five of these blocks.  One in each corner and one in the center.  The third block of this top is solid squares.

This is the stitching design I used on the solid blocks.  It uses elements to coordinate with the pieced ones.

Now go back to the first photo to see the three blocks.   Here’s a little tidbit of information.  The stitching done on this quilt top was one continuous line from start to finish.  After the stabilizing of course.  I only cut the thread and stopped the stitching when the bobbin ran out.  I left the needle down when the quilt was advanced.  I really like when designs work together that way.
