Anita's quilts and quilting

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

Making some progress

I’m still working on the same quilt.  Dealing with other issues has put me behind schedule but I believe the design is perfect for this one and worth the wait.  I hope the customer feels the same way.  This is definitely not a design for quilting in a hurry or for quilts that will see lots of abuse.

I finished the feathers around the border and the background behind them.  The feathers are now slightly puffy.

I do love a challenge quilt and this one certainly has done that!  The design is a diamond, inside a diamond, inside a diamond, inside a diamond design.  I can do only half a diamond, stop, cut the thread, and then do the other half, stop, cut the thread, start the next diamond.  Lots of stops and starts on this one.  I’m not quite sure how many diamonds will end up in the finished design.  I will write more about my process once the quilt is done.
