A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.
I’m waiting on the delivery of a batting order and can’t work on a customer quilt until the order arrives. My niece asked if I had a charity quilt she could give to someone. The quilt didn’t need to be fancy. It just needed to be warm. I pulled this one out and finished it for her. It’s a design by Bonnie Hunter.
When I created this quilt top I had gotten a bag full of shirt sleeve cuffs from someone who worked in a shirt factory. I took those apart to use and added scrap gingham fabrics from my fabric pantry. The quilting on the center area is a panto from Circle Lord. The inside border is an “LE” design. Ladybug calls it big loops, little loops.
I used a sheet for the backing. Many quilters will say that using sheets is wrong. I’m just the opposite. I believe sheets make fine backings on quilts. Hmm…. something for you to think about. Just where do you think “wide backings” came from? Where are they made? Didn’t you know? Wide backing fabric is simply sheets without hems.
