A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.
I’ve been quite busy finishing quilts and other life stuff that has limited my time on the computer. Today was drop off day for the fair entries. Thank goodness those are done! I felt it better to stay at the quilting machine than to set at the computer writing in order to get them all finished on time. I failed to finish the last one but its a good start of next year’s quilts.
I’ll be showing the quilt finishes one at a time, in no particular order, in separate posts so I can list them on my 2015 finishes list. As always you can click the photo to make it larger and see better details of the quilting. This is the first one. It belongs to my SIL Nancy.
There is a LOT of ruler work in this one. This photo was taken while it was still on the machine and being quilted. I had great window light that day.
I did a freehand design on the top and bottom borders.
I did another freehand design on the first inside border. The thread doesn’t show up much from the front so here it is from the back.
I did a straight line and bubble design on the next inside border.
I did a flower design in the center of the straight line on point boxes.
I did the binding for her as she wasn’t feeling well. I chose to do a machine binding with a tiny flange.
This one is ta done! It was dropped off at the fair today. She has decided this will be her very last quilt. She can’t do the work anymore. That’s why I did special quilting on it for her. It was time consuming but worth it.
