Hi Shirley! I used a computerized design for the feather circles, then switched to free motion and used my channel locks to quilt the horizontal lines at 1 apart.

I’ve been meaning to blog about this quilt for some time now, and finally I am. The Round & Round quilt pattern by Camille Roskelley wasn’t even on my radar until Jen sent in this quilt for custom quilting. And now I must make one for myself. I see so... Continue reading

I really enjoy wreaths, and making them. This year, I made a new one for our front door. It would have been easiest to just pull one out that I already had, but I was in the mood to make a new one and was up to the task. I... Continue reading

Lisa sent in this quilt for custom quilting and I was in love as soon as I laid eyes on it. The pattern was a block of the month from Crabapple Hill Studios. Lisa executed it with fantastic workmanship and it was a pleasure to quilt. I wanted to keep... Continue reading

Today I’m joining 30 other bloggers on the Winged Blog Tour. I’ve really enjoyed seeing what everyone has made, check it all out here. The Winged collection has so many fantastic prints in it, the most difficult part of the task was choosing which fabrics I wanted to use. I... Continue reading

1. Sip & Sew mug from Sew Caroline – quilters don’t exactly have time for washing dishes so we can always use another mug, especially when it’s this cute. 2. Longarm quilting gift certificate from Crinklelove – chances are your quilter has at least one quilt top that needs quilting.... Continue reading

I had so much fun with this quilt. Michelle sent in this quilt and said she like the macaroni edge to edge pattern, but she was torn between that and custom quilting. Good thing is you don’t have to choose, we can do both! I decided to mix the macaroni... Continue reading

Good suggestions! I always appreciate when a client has stay-stitched around their quilt.
A couple of go-to battings are Quilters Dream Puff and Hobbs 80/20.
Here’s a little of what’s been on the frame here lately. These quilts are getting measured and checked in. Tiffin made this quilt entirely of vintage sheets, which I love! She picked out a wonderful daisy pattern and we both really loved the result. This vibrant quilt was a birthday... Continue reading

1 - Don’t hold up your quilt top from the corners. I catch myself doing this all the time when I’m showing off a completed quilt top. The problem is, when we hold up a quilt top from it’s corners, the weight of the top causes the fabric to stretch... Continue reading

Mandy sent these in and said I could quilt them any way I wanted, just no pebbles. It’s really exciting as a longarm quilter when a client lets you be creative with the quilting on their quilt. My Gammill Statler Stitcher allows me to use an all over pattern with... Continue reading

A while back I came across the website of J. Michelle Watts when I was online looking for some southwest type quilting patterns. I bought several of them from her and the thing I love about them is almost all of them have a wall hanging size included. So, even... Continue reading

In December, I joined the Feathers Quilt Along over at The ADD Crafter. This was the first time I’ve participated in a quilt along, and the reason I did is because it was paper piecing and the pattern was fantastic. I was smitten right away. It was a feat though,... Continue reading

When someone asks you to make cupcake toppers for a summer-themed birthday party, you’re always safe with popsicles. Especially if they’re this cute. I saw this photo of these toppers, but there was no “how-to” other than use Mike and Ike’s and toothpicks. It was pretty simple to fill in... Continue reading
