This week I worked on the biggest quilt ever! The backing of this quilt took up every inch of my 12' table! It is good to know that I made the right deciscion to purchase the 12' table instead of going with the 10' version. I was really worried about the 12' fitting into the room that was designated to be my longarm room. Check out this clearance.
This small space is how I get to the back of my machine, multiple times a day, in order to be able to do pantograph quilting. Needless to say, I have to turn sideways and suck it in in order to get back there!
This is my beautiful room! I love that it has that large window, front and center, so I have plenty of light. Another bonus is that as soon as you come through my front door you turn right and this is what you find. My customers don't have to walk through my entire house to get to my quilting room!
OH! Back to the quilt. This quilt was sent to me by Cheryl from North Dakota! It was made using stonehenge fabrics and it is so beautiful and soft!
This picture is while it was still on the machine...
She used a solid brown for the backing and I used a tan/gold thread on the back so the quilting showed up really well. She chose my Arabesque pattern.
I attempted to lay the finished quilt out on my floor...but the quilt was so big that it covered all of my floor space, as well as the overflow of quilts that currently don't fit into the cupboard! I really like this picture because you can really see the size of the quilting pattern in correlation to the size of the quilt. I spent quite a few hours on this beauty.
Cheryl actually sent me two quilts. This is the second one.
Yup, its another large beauty! She chose my new pattern "Wave on Wave" for this quilt and I think that it was the right choice.
I used a maroon thread. The quilting showed up very well on the back of this quilt as well.
This next quilt was made by my friend Kris. This is the second quilt in a month that I have finished up for her for a school auction. I sure hope that they are selling well, because she does a fantastic job on these quilts!
 This quilt has a bunch of pictures in it with children's names on them. If I had to guess I would say that the children took the pictures and then someone took the time to write the childs name on their picture, printed them on fabric, and here is an awesome personalized quilt. Priceless!
Thanks for reading my blog! Comments are always welcome and encouraged.
Happy quilting everyone!
