Custom Quilting Ohio Star

This quilt is made from a pattern published by Missouri Star Quilt Company and they call it "Oberlin". I used it recently as the basis for a larger quilt - I put four of these together and added a border - but this grey and white smaller custom version was the one I first intended… Continue reading Custom Quilting Ohio Star

Dreaming Big For the Third time

Just finished my third custom free motion Dream Big panel quilt and this is the first on my long arm (the other two were done on my sit down machine). I LOVE this ocean-like color way and while I had to push through some not-so-great quilting moments on this one (we all have days when… Continue reading Dreaming Big For the Third time

Dream Big Panel Again!

It was a sit down custom quilting day and I shot lots of video to share with you! I quilted this Dream Big panel for a client and decided to do it on my sit down machine so I could share the process and hopefully some inspiration with those of you who quilt on domestic… Continue reading Dream Big Panel Again!

Custom Quilting on a baby quilt panel

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

Time Flies – and so do flies and bees and ants and other such outdoor summer kinds of things…

I am soooo far behind in posting here; I just checked and it's been a month!  I knew I had a lot to catch up on but a whole month? Things have been buzzing along in my studio this past while, including my first bee of the season which, as anyone who knows me well… Continue reading Time Flies – and so do flies and bees and ants and other such outdoor summer kinds of things…

Progressive Detail Quilting

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

Free Motion Graffiti 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

A Happy Accident

Burnt orange is supposedly a trending color for 2019.  I say "supposedly" because I find it difficult to keep track and often find myself at the mercy of outside sources when it comes to staying on top of these things! So I thought I'd go with it, dive in, and make a quilt in this… Continue reading A Happy Accident
