Block of the Month Quilt and more

I quilted Pat's Block of the Month Quilt '09. This quilt is form batiks with pieced and machine embroidered blocks. The quilting in pink thread shows off very nicely in the borders.

Close up of some of the blocks.

Muslin backing.

Backing with the "Curly Q" panto.

Sandy pieced the red and white Day and Night quilt.

We decided on the panto called "Curlz" in a tan colored thread.

Red and white borders.


This is Linda's very first quilt. She used her son's school uniforms and made a quilt for him.

"Stars" panto and a close up of the blocks made from the school uniforms.

I changed the quilts behind my longarm. I always enjoy looking at my quilts. I know I am only making fast and easy quilts and nothing like the beautiful and complex quilts I quilt for customers...but I LOVE my quilts. My kids always tease me and say I am making "cutting corner quilts".

Happy Quilting!

What will I do without my longarm?

My longarm was down for 2 and a half weeks while I was waiting for a machine part. It felt like two months! It was a nice, little vacation but I kept worrying about becoming too behind.

But I'm quilting again and I realized I am lost without my longarm. I finished the quilting on Innell's batik quilt.

Scrappy border.

Scrappy backing.

While I was waiting for the machine part, I worked on a string quilt for myself and a few customer T-shirt quilts.

Did I use the time to clean my home? NO...I noticed on the picture above and below all the dust on the black picture frame on the wall. I am going to use the yellow flower fabric for the backing, it is a very old piece of fabric I have had for a long time in my stash.

Jenny's first T-shirt quilt is all done.

Black border and backing.

I pieced Jenny's second T-shirt quilt and made a scrappy backing from the leftover clothing.

Happy early Mother's Day to all the mothers out there.

Happy Quilting!
