It seems in my life anyways…every day is a quilt day! If I am not actually quilting …a customer quilt or working on one of my own I am thinking about quilting often.
36 years or so worth of quilting and a lifetime of sewing as I can’t remember not sewing even if it was just playing with Moms notions stash or her machine oh I loved readjusting those settings. I suppose that she had me to thank when her Kenmore just was never working right and she then upgraded to her much loved Pfaff!
My Longarm not only brings me joy but enables me to bring joy to those who for the most part just want to piece quilt tops.
I also finish vintage tops! Carefully sewing fabrics of days gone by into backings and finished off with the final stitches of bindings.
I have often found patterns and ideas online and just have to make it, sometimes just because I know how I would like to quilt them.
Quilts like this one that I just couldn’t get off of my mind so it found it’s way to my design wall and later the Longarm.
And of course my wonderful customers that just let me do my thing with their tops!
Oh and of course there are friends that share their scraps instead of tossing them that cause me to play with more ideas! If you have ever read the book Jillian Jigs you can imagine what that play does to my sewing room!!
