Affirmation…

Let’s face it, we all want it, even crave it. For someone to say, “You did a great job!” or “I’m so glad you were there for me.” I love it when a customer sees his or her quilt for the first time after I’ve finished quilting it – such joy on their faces!

A wedding quilt

This one was special, and one that I made. It was a gift for my nephew Matt and his new bride Alyssa! The quilt pattern is from a magazine and the quilt is 101″ x 101″.

I used Kona Silver and Kona Navy, the backing fabric is Benartex Vine Silver/Grey from Backside Fabrics (great customer service btw), thread is Omni Royal by Superior and the batting is my favorite Hobbs 80/20. I really love this quilt and I hope the recipients do, too! I’m hoping to get a picture of… Read more »

On the frame today, Thursday, May 4

 Quilt pieced by René. Quilted with Superior Omni Thread in medium grey, Hobbs 80/20 batting (single layer), Bauhaus pantograph by Urban Elementz. This sucker is HUGE! 107″ x 122″! Each quilting pass takes me almost 20 minutes! And on a side note, I had no idea a tetanus booster would make my arm so sore the next day! Happy quilting! Lisa
