Wendy's Longarm Quilting, Thunder Bay, Ontario

A Few of my Favourite Things!

As a professional Longarm quilter I have over time discovered a few tools that make life a little easier.

I love good lighting and as much as I love my domestic machines they lack good enough lights. A friend gifted me an led strip light meant to be attached to the machine however the strips included never stuck long term.

My newest machine does have a led light, however not as bright as I would like.

I really didn’t want to glue anything permanently to my machine so my solution was to use command strips and crazy glue the light strip to it. It hasn’t moved since!

My daughter gifted me a shoulder massager a few years ago and it’s right up there with good lighting!

Also in the lighting department this led rechargeable flashlight has been invaluable not only for checking the tension on the quilt back when longarming but also when doing maintenance and work such as retiming the Longarm.

This one has a magnetic base and is adjustable.

My Carol Duek paper piecing paper order is out for delivery. So hopefully I will get to play with that today. It was a busy week on the Longarm.

I will share a few more things tomorrow.


A Little Show and Tell while we wait for Spring!

The days are feeling a little longer lately even though the winter weather still seems to have a firm grip.

I’ve been busy in my studio both in piecing


And of course Machine Quilting

This was a fun freehand job, that I added some “modern style” quilting to a traditional quilt. (Unfortunately the back was too busy to really show the quilting) the first picture is the top before quilting the second is a close up to show how I quilted it.



Next up the Anniversary Quilt, it was quilted with a Panto called Here and There, I chose it as it has both a heart looking shape as well as a feathery look without being overly feminine as it is a gift for a couple on their fiftieth Anniversary.




I will be back soon with more show and tell soon!
