A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.
It has been several days since I posted a quilt finish. I’ve been living life, taking classes, organizing paperwork, researching information about mortgage fraud, and other things away from the computer. Away from the quilting machine too. Anyway, here is the finished quilt.
Needa makes very large quilts. Her quilts barely fit onto the quilting machine. Because of the busy fabric the stitching doesn’t show much.
I believe an overall (pantograph) design would look much better on a quilt like this but the customer wants custom. I have several quilts that came to me in the last couple of weeks. An answer to a wish and a prayer. For at least the next couple of months I can count on a steady income again.
Now if only…… if only……. the neighbors would understand that quilting is my job, not a hobby. Because I work at home it doesn’t mean I don’t have to work. No work, no paycheck. They can set around all day watching tv or gossiping while waiting for a government check or food stamps but that’s not my style. Actually it’s stay up all night watching tv and sleeping all day for them. Umm, ok, that’s a whole different blog post. I’ll work on that later.
