Machine Quilting

I love the texture that quilting adds to a quilt top. Even the smallest of tops are quilted on my longarm.
This is Carol's Christmas runner. You can see her finish here. I've been quilting on client quilts in between a wee bit of piecing of my own for holiday gift giving. Are your quilt tops ready for giving? I have openings for edge-to-edge quilting. My email is under the "About Me" on the sidebar of blog.
My mailbox has had some wonderful mail the last few days that I will share very soon. I forgot to take photos for this post. Wishing you all a very productive week!

You are so right Mary, the quilting makes all the difference with the texture. Beautiful work - both you and Carol.

You just always have the coolest designs with your quilting! It's not JUST texture; it's texture than complements and enhances the quilt which is hard to find!! I've not seen anything you've done that is "run of the mill" -- not even your "edge to edge" designs. What's your schedule look like at the first of the year!? :-D
Blessings,
Mary Lou

Oh YES...the Quilting IS the icing on the cake!
I absolutely love to look at the graceful stitching that enhances a quilt.
You actually have an opening? I would have thought you have a very very long waiting list.

I love the quilting. It really makes a huge difference. Just a bit of texture brings the quilt to life!

QuiltSue said...

I love how you always seem to find exactly the right pattern for every quilt. I can spend hours (OK, days, weeks even sometimes) deciding, and then still change my mind at the last minute.

Jackie said...

I really love the way you've quilted this. Did you do this free hand? Just gorgeous!

Sharon said...

Fantastic...as always! And here I sit struggling with a border design and can't pick one...how do you do it?

Shakerwood said...

Can't decide which I like more, the quilting or the fact that it is so Christmasy! You know me and Christmas!! Well, of course I like the quilting better . . . .
