Wendy's Longarm Quilting, Thunder Bay, Ontario

Sam’s Turtle Quilt

This fun quilt was picked up yesterday, I really enjoyed working on it during some of our greyer days!

This quilt was the second in a series of quilts made for my customer Karen’s grandchildren. The first was the Minecraft quilt that I have blogged about previously, this one is also double sided with the child’s name pieced in, how fun is that!

Using a panel for colour inspiration is a great way to start off in choosing fabrics for a quilt and as you can see blocks were chosen to grow the quilt keeping the panel as a focus.

Piecing the backing can create a challenge for a Longarm quilter, it just takes a little more time and planning in loading the quilt in order to centre the backing to the quilt top.

The pantograph Bubbles was chosen by Sam’s Grandma Karen the maker of these super fun quilts.

  1. The Sam’s quilt is amazing! I’m in love. I have 3 shell babies. 2 sulcata tortoise ” Harrison and Tortimer”. 1 leopard tortoise “Iorek”. Do you know if she has a pattern? I want to make one…..

  2. Hi Jennifer, thank you for your comment. I believe that this quilter designs her quilts with inspiration from Pinterest! He work is incredible especially considering that she is a fairly new quilter.
