Well it’s a little past mid March and I woke up to snow…again. Thankfully my morning commute is only a short stairway away!
A peek at what’s under my needle…though it’s almost finished and will be done before lunch break. I am really enjoying the changing colours on this quilt with every advance.
Todays Instagram Quiltfest post prompt was favourite quilt which I can truthfully say that I don’t have one.
I love quilts and their stories some are so exciting such as for babies and weddings…some have brought me comfort the ones made for friends that are at the end of life or struggling.
This is a customer quilt from early in my Longarm career, I love the beautiful appliqué and the quilting added. I wish that I had better pictures of it!
Another custom quilting job that included a lot of freehand stitching, it really is a spectacular quilt!
This one was a Victory Quilt made to commemorate the end of the World War in 1945, it was brought to me top and backing and binding to complete.
Another long time ago quilt, made by Margaret Bliss for her Grandson, that shows my custom Quilting.
My friend Alva and I decided to play with the disappearing hour glass pattern shown on Missouri Star Quilts…mine was made with Kaffe Fassett fabrics and hers with Batiks.
This was Alva’s last quilt, I quilted so many quilts for her and this final one was the only one that I put the last stitch in for her in the binding.
Many of my personal quilts have been made just for fun, playing with different ideas, patterns, fabrics and colours. Many quilts are my favourite while I am making them!
Oh one last picture…I was asked to be quilter of the month early on in my Longarm quilting career the memory came up this week on facebook
