We wanted to be totally confident before we worked on other peoples precious quilts and so we quilted over 50 charity tops first, to get a good feel for the procedure and to experience various different problems and challanges a longarm quilter faces.
This week I have quilted several customer tops. One lady received her parcel from the carrier on Thursday and she rang absolutely thrilled to bits with her quilt - Phew! She has also allowed me to share it with you.
The pattern she chose is called Triange Triangle and the full finishing service was requested.
My next customer brought in a bedrunner and requested Waskily Rabbit. Its so cute.
here is the back
Next is a japanese style quilt
Pattern is - Calm Water
Again the full finishing service was requested for this quilt.
Here is a wholecloth quilt which was designed in the retreat with Lilian Hedley here at The Royal Bridlington. I have layered this up and basted on the longarm for this customer so its now ready for hand quilting.
What a great week, four very happy customers with four very different quilts, plus the company of lovely quilters who were here on a retreat with Lilian Hedley and then rounded off with International Quilting Day.
Today, to celebrate I worked on my own top and also made a You Tube Video.
The pattern is called Bubbles Everywhere and here is the quilt off the frame - just the binding to do now.
