I just finished machine-quilting a quilt made by my friend Tamah. It is always a pleasure to work on a well- made and beautiful quilt. I was tempted to keep this one... it looked great in my house.

I don't know what there is about cats and quilters, but every quilt studio needs a cat or two. Sammy is now discovering the joys of my sewing room...he is fascinated with all of my gadgets, especially my bobbins. I now have to put all the dangers away, and there are quite a few in my sewing room. It is like having a toddler around.
I have been busy finishing up my Primitive Gatherings "Folk Album" wool quilt. It has been a pleasure working on this for the past 3 years (no - really, I am not kidding). I love hand-appliqueing with wool, especially these beautiful hand-dyed wools. I decided that because all of the applique was done by hand, it deserved to finished off with hand-quilting. It was worth all the work - it really is beautiful.
I have also finished machine quilting a Carolina Lily quilt for Tamah, which came our really nice.
Last but not least here are some updated pics of Kip and Sam, who are having the best time together.
I just finished machine quilting a baby quilt for my friend Janet. I love working on baby/kids quilts, I don't know what it is about them, I guess they are just delightful. This one was perfect for quilting; in the area around the bunny I did in a small stipple which makes the applique pop. And the feathers around the circle make it pop even more. This was fun!
I have decided to try my hand at machine quilting as a business. I have been machine quilting my own quilts for years and really enjoy it. A few members of my quilting bee have asked me to provide this service. I am honored that they have confidence in me and trust me with their beautiful quilt tops.
I will be charging 1.5 cents per square inch, plus the cost of the thread. I prefer to work on quilts no larger than full size as I machine quilt on my domestic machine.
I will be posting a list of prices plus pictures of my work. Feel free to contact me or come over to see samples.
Here are a few examples of my work:
