Here is a little gallery of two quilts I just finished on my longarm. One is a Quilt of Valor pieced by a member of the Sugar River QOV Quilters, Barb Brunner. The other is a really cute triangle quilt pieced by Joan Parrish. I used a variegated thread on the triangle quilt - I think it was just the right thread for this colorful quilt.
I finished this purse last weekend from a pattern called A Cute Bag from http://www.wonderwomanquilts.com I really like how it turned out. You really can't go wrong with batiks. I am hoping to make a matching wallet soon.
This last week my daughter and I designed a layout for a t shirt for our high school pit orchestra for the musical Fiddler on the Roof. here is a mock up of the shirt. Yes it is true, I don't get to quilt all day everyday.
Happy Quilting Everyone!!

Here is a link to a video I thought you might like for an easier way to make your quilt sandwich for quilting on your domestic sewing machine.
Created some new digital pantographs for my longarm. I have a customer that would like me to quilt two identical baby quilts for her new grandsons. She wants to use the same cream minky for backing and thought it would be nice to have two different pantographs to distinguish which quilt is which. She asked if I had or could get anything with elephants for one and fawns for the other. I drew up the designs on paper, then scanned them onto my computer. Using my Longarm software I used the scanned pictures as a background and redrew the animal one line at a time and curved them to match the background picture. I then saved the animal, copied more of the same animal onto the screen, and added the extra lines and hearts to the design.
Here are the final products show below. I would love to hear any comments you have regarding these designs.
I will post photos of the actual quilts when I get them quilted.

I finished these two quilts today. I love the colors in the batik lap quilt. I also like that my client chose wool batting, the swirls in the cinnamon swirl panto puff up just right.
The little sailboat quilt was just so adorable. I used a panto on it called tranquility, that just made me feel like the little boats are really out to sea.
I recently added some Robert Kaufman fabrics to my website. Metallic fabrics make me smile. Here are some pictures of my newest additions.
Having coffee with my niece this morning and then it's off to work on quilts this afternoon.

Happy Quilting Sunday!
Last night my daughter was volunteering for National Honor Society at the PTO Fall Footloose and my husband was working out at the family property so I was in my studio running my long arms "Miss Libby" and "Sir Freddie". I was finishing up a couple of pantographs for clients and piecing the quilt I blogged about last night. As far as I'm concerned, there is no better way to spend an evening alone than being in my studio quilting away! Below are two videos I took on my phone last night showing Miss Libby and Sir Freddie at work.
