Exciting NEWS!!!!

I am the new owner of a 2004 APQS Millenium. We worked out the details yesterday. Will be looking into having it shipped from MO to PA. Now, I really need to sell my ULT II, there is no way they will both fit in the sewing room.

Angel Wing quilt is done

It quilted so quick, and was so much fun. The design was perfect for hand quided long arm quilting. The only thing I would change is maybe a double batt or a high loft to make the wings and feathers pop.

First Whole cloth

I have started marking this whole cloth today, it was designed by Joann Hoffman. It will be my first on the long arm. To see more photos or to order your own pattern please visit the link below

Finished quilt is 55x55

Churn Again

Measuring 98x98 this original design quilt was a blast to create and to make.
The center Churn Dash blocks measure just 3 inches finished and were not paper pieced. From there I radiated out in multiples of three, 6, 9, and 12 inches. To put an extra twist on the whole quilt I changed the settings. Going from on point to straight set, and repeating the setting OH THE MATH for this quilt was crazy!! It has also been entered in 3 quilt shows.

Finished yesterday

This is a baby quilt for a friend who has had horses most of her life. Her mom and dad own the barn where I board my horse.
