Wendy's Longarm Quilting, Thunder Bay, Ontario

Elizabeth’s Quilt

Elizabeth told me that she was inspired by a quilt that she saw while visiting a family member. Sometimes it’s just like that, we see a quilt, admire it and is stays with us.

This causes many a quilter to start collecting fabrics particularly when the quilt was scrappy! This quilt finished as a large queen. Her rules were white on whites with various blues and reds from depression era fabrics.

One word of advice when piecing such a quilt is to stay stitch as you go. What I mean by that is that when you have so many seams esp on your edges that if you stitch 1/8” from the edge it prevents seams from popping open either from handling or being loaded onto a Longarm frame.

I often will stay stitch a quilt for my customers if they haven’t. It makes loading and quilting much easier.

This was such a happy quilt to work on!

The backing really suits the front though working with it wasn’t always easy on my eyes.
