Quilting In My Hollow Like Crazy!

I want to share with you just a few pictures of what you would have seen in my quilt studio this week. The above photo is a small stack of quilts that I will show in detail later. These still need to be sent back to the owners who blog and I'm sure would like to see and share with you first.

I also quilted a couple of very large tops. This postage stamp is has been mailed back to Carol.

Here is a closer look at the quilting she chose. I absolutely love it!


This quilt is from a Thimbleberries pattern and the customer wanted snowflake quilting. Won't this be wonderful on a bed at Christmas this year?

The quilt measured 103" x 85" and makes me want a two-color quilt of my own! This customer doesn't have a blog but found that I was a longarm quilter through my blog. All inquiries welcome!

While checking the underside of the quilt on the frame I spotted this cute little snowflake and just had to snap a photo!
I'll be gone from this Wednesday through Sunday to my longarmer's retreat in Atlanta, GA. My husband will be here to receive quilt tops sent to me in the mail so no worries for you!

That does it. Once my studio is back in order I'm definitely going to make a two color red and white quilt and you're going to quilt it for me. I L-O-V-E it!!!

Yes, you've been busy my friend. Have fun at the longarm retreat.

The first picture looks like Moda-fest! So many pretty fabrics. Love what you did on Carol's quilt. She's going to be so happy!
And the red and white quilt would definitely be a nice Christmas quilt. Have fun in Atlanta!

Carol said...

You've been very busy. I love that red and white quilt with the snowflakes. I also love how you quilted my postage stamp quilt, it's going to look great on my bed. Have a great time at your retreat.

Loris said...

Lovely work! That red and white sure looks wonderful. I love quilted snowflakes :-) they just look happy!

Shelley said...

Awesome quilting Mary! You have been busy. You must have laid down on the floor under the frame to get the snowflake photo LOL! If that was me, I just want to stay there, remembering the days I used to spend lying on the floor under Grammie's quilt frame :)

Anne said...

Wow...I so admire your talent for being able to longarm so beautifully. I made a red/white Irish Chain for a wedding gift for DD and new SIL. I got so bored making it but loved it when it finally got quilted. Have fun at your retreat

Jayne said...

Ok, since when is it a good idea to tease followers??? That stack of quilts - I can't wait to see them unfolded and photographed! You have a beauty on the longarm machine, too. Looking at your blog today is like being a kid in the candy store...*sigh*

Brenda said...

Beautiful quilt and quilting!

Becky said...

Gosh, Mary, where in Atlanta is your retreat? I live in a suburb north of Atlanta. Are you driving or flying to Atlanta? I'd love to meet you if you have any flexibility. Have a wonderful retreat!!!!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I recognize some of those quilts in that stack! And Carol's postage stable quilt is extra wonderful with your quilting. I too would love to make a two color quilt - I have the design chosen, just can't find the pattern!

Barb said...

Oh wow...such lovely quilts and quilting...enjoy your retreat!

Hi, Mary,
Wow, you have been busy. The retreat sounds like a ton of fun.

As you know, we were stranded out of town during the recent snowstorm. I am just getting caught up with blog reading and commenting.

Are you stitching and watching the red carpet? ~Natalie

Quilt Rat said...

Beauties! Every one of them. You must be getting very excited with the retreat coming soon. I'll bet it is a wonderful experience. ENJOY!!!

Have a great time at your retreat. I especially loved seeing the snowflake on the back of that one quilt!

onlymehere said...

Have a great retreat! Thanks for sharing your lovely quilting with us. It's always a joy. It's fun to see what others create and your blog is a great place for inspiration!

Lori said...

What a fun work week you have had!! I would find it hard to send some of those quilts back to their owners!!

Karen said...

Snowflakes was a good idea for the red & white quilt. Christmas on through winter would be a good time to display it.

Carol's postage stamp quilt is quite large. Will make a good bed quilt.

Hope you get to come up for some breath soon.
