Wendy's Longarm Quilting, Thunder Bay, Ontario

Circles and Swirls

It seems so rare these days when I work from the front of my machine. Last week changed that as I was requested to quilt a 9 foot table runner with an idea inspired by a pattern that it’s maker had found.

I call this kind of quilting doodling and while it’s time consuming and can be a little scary to start I always remind myself that I am going for the whole picture and not the first few square inches.

The choice of backing is important for this type of quilting and in this case the chosen back is perfect. (Shown on the bottom portion in the picture below)

The runner will eventually be displayed on a ten foot table. It was a very fun project to add my touch to and I am excited that there is a second one waiting in the Que that I will incorporate more aspects to my doodles into.
