Another Quilt Finished
Done.Yeay! This quilt is owned by the same lady who did the "Brown Bricks"(see previous post). She was stash busting and just wanted them "Utility quilted" which was completely understandable for the 2 brown bricks . I was happy to oblige. When I pulled this one out of the bag I knew it was going to need a little extra somthin somthin ( more than utility quilting for sure!)as far as quilting goes. I spoke with her about this and she told me to go ahead and do whatever I wanted. Which, If you are a Long Arm Quilter, can be both a blessing and a curse. Most of the time clients say this and again I am happy to add the "frosting" (in the form of quilting) and hopefully the quilting adds that finishing touch and the owner is happy with the result. I am now to the bottom of my pile of customer quilts. Mostly because I have had so much time to get caught up and havent been to quilt guild to take anything for show and tell to remind them that yes indeed I AM STILL QUILTING!!!!!! (usually I only quilt part time due to the having to have a "real job ") Last night I had 4 client quilts I delivered to members but no one showed preferring to show when they are bound and truly finished. I did bring the BIG BLOCK MONSTER to show ...but it doesn't exactly exemplify my custom quilting skills. So today I will start on my Mom's quilt for her "other Guild"show coming up in October. This will be a fun one because I love these types of fabrics and"devil may care" color combos!!!!!!!
I love connecting with other creative people!I am a Sales Rep for APQS Long-Arm Quilting Machines as well as run a Quilting Business which enables me to help people finish their quilt tops.My primary focus is fiber and I enjoy all aspects of it.Quilt history and Art quilts are another interest of mine along with collecting antique and vintage quilt parts.I live with 4 cats, 3 dogs,8 chickens and my Husband who is a Godzilla/gamer/Theater geek.We live on a small farm and enjoy riding our motorcycles as much as we can in the warmer months......even though we should be mowing or gardening!
