A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.
Yes, a whole month since I wrote the last post on the blog. I’ve had several things going on that have required me to be away from home alot this past month. I’ve had several appointments which kind of mess up my day. I get into a rhythm of quilting just as its time to turn off the machine and catch a bus. Traveling by bus is very time consuming. By the time I get home I’m usually pretty tired so I do things that don’t require a lot from me. My mother is not doing well. She has trouble swallowing her food. Its getting into her lungs and choking her as well as giving her pneumonia. Needless to say I’ve been spending a great deal of time with her.
Anyway, I do have a quilt finish. This one belongs to Sheila in South Carolina.
I had intended to do a different design. I did a small area and wasn’t happy with the look. I picked it out to do something else. I think it looks nicer now. I can save that design idea for another quilt at another time. This is the main block area. I did a square outline within the block to give it a surprise element. This mimicked the triangles in other parts of the quilt. The center is treated as a square and the corners treated as separate parts. Hmm… I’m not explaining it very well. Click the photo to see it up close and it will explain itself.
