I was listening to a program recently that brought to mind my own previous misconceptions about computerized quilting and prompted me to put together a video to show a few aspects that might also help dispel any ideas others have about how it works. The software that runs on my Gammill Statler Stitcher allows me… Continue reading Longarm Quilting – Computerized and still Creative!
I recently finished this project for a client, making good use of my Gammill Statler Stitcher for the custom quilting both in and around the snowflake tree. I love all those lines with varied spacing! I was able to mark them out as I went along the quilt so I could design on the fly… Continue reading Snowflake Tree Quilt Panel
This quilt is made from a pattern published by Missouri Star Quilt Company and they call it "Oberlin".

I attended a Gammill Education conference recently to get more savvy with my Statler and when I got home I was anxious to start trying some of the exercises we learned, so I got right to work on a quilt that was already on my frame. I had begun by fitting an edge to edge… Continue reading Customized Digital Quilting
Just wanted to share this cute baby quilt I worked on this week for a client who requested a combination of computerized and free motion quilting. She wanted custom quilting on the inner panel and a digital design for the outer edges. And she chose wool batting which gave this quilt so much texture! I… Continue reading Custom Quilting on a baby quilt panel
I've been inspired by several talented machine quilters over the past few years since I began my journey - Natalia Bonner, Angela Walters, Sharon Blackmore, Judi Madsen, to name a few! - and when I'm working on a quilt using techniques I've gleaned from a particular video or class I always like to mention it… Continue reading Progressive Detail Quilting
Happy Hump Day! (yeah, I know, sounds kind of weird but I'm told that in the present day that's what working people call Wednesday...getting over the hump for the week!) I recently posted this short video on Youtube - sped up, of course - showing some playtime free motion quilting I did on a practice… Continue reading Free Motion Graffiti Quilting
