Anita's quilts and quilting

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

A little quilting

I’ve had these two little wall hanging quilts here since back early in the year.  I told the lady it might take me a very long time to finish them for her and she was ok with that.  Well, I finally got them finished.  All I had to do is the binding and a hanging sleeve.  These are 6″ x 21″ each.

Quilts-Mary Ann 006I finished this small wall hanging for her too.  I did the quilting but stopped whenever my arm started hurting.  The size is 20″ x 45″ so its very small.

Quilts-Mary Ann 001It felt good to be at the quilting machine again.  I did very simple designs that could be done easily.  Straight  lines on the border.

I did a type of meander in the background.

I put the binding on by machine using a blanket stitch just like she had used to stitch the applique then added a hanging sleeve.  I managed to do the quilting without over working my arm.  Yippie!

I’m not ready to go back to full time quilting yet but it does feel good to be doing some quilting.  I have one more small one to work on.  I put it on the machine Saturday and will work on it a little at a time.  It has been here since back in the spring too.  I may be working at a snail’s pace but even snails get to their destination eventually.

    I just discovered your blog and find you are quite an amazing woman. I really like your quilt with the two guys with low pants. It’s bold and original, interesting. It’s a shame you aren’t making more money out of your quilting. Don’t underestimate your work and don’t underprice it (if you can, we all need to eat….).

      Thank you for following my blogs. I’m working on it. (smile) I tried looking at your wordpress blog but it said it couldn’t be found. Is your link correct?

        It should be, but I think you’d have problems reading it as it is all in french (I’m Swiss),
