Blogger's Quilt Festival - Fall 2009





I've chosen the following quilt for Amy's blogger quilt festival. This was my very first custom longarm quilt as I'm a pantograph charity quilter. I quilt with a terrific group every Wed., Stitcher's Group. We made the wall hanging for our friend Sharon who was moving away (we miss her so). She sews on a featherweight.

This is my spool thread block

I searched out help from lots of other longarm quilters. I used a piece of vinyl to decided on my quilting .... worked out wonderfully.

I learned so much from quilting this quilt in the custom format .... someday I'll make myself one.

Thanks for stopping by and looking. Be sure to visit all the other quilts ... over 300 at this time.

very nice. I have that pattern and I actually finished it a few days ago. I modernized it a bit though with a Bernina instead of a featherweight.
