With terribly broken hearts 💔 we must share that our sweet, goofy, full-of-life Baxter was hit by a car as he darted away from us on a portion of the Natchez Trace bike trail in southern Mississippi during a potty break. He has left a huge hole in our lives and left his big brother, Buster, lost and confused. 😢💔💔
RIP sweet #baxterboy

You will still see a few more quilt pictures with him (as I’m behind on posting).

This cool quilt (pattern is called Lust Have 😊) was made for dear friends of this quilter - and is destined for that friend’s RV camper. Wow! 🥰😍🥰😍 I used the Quirky #pantograph and Wheat #gliderhread to finish it.

Mom made me sit on ICE 🧊 COLD ROCKS! Just for a picture! My big brother Buster had to step in to take a happier picture - he sure looks out for me (cuz Mom sure didn’t!) 💙💙🙍🏻‍♂️🙍🏼‍♂️😂🤦🏻‍♀️

It’s after the first day of Spring and I’m so late in posting pictures - but this is a beautiful antique Double Wedding Ring bed runner or table topper. Made by someone in this Quilter’s family (possibly her Grandmother as a young girl). All hand pieced and very much showing it’s age (75+ years old). I patched disintegrated fabrics and repaired seams and used muslin on top of the batting as a stabilizer for this delicate piece. A smaller needle, Cream #glidethread and the beautiful Blissful #pantograph made this priceless heirloom ready for another 75 years 🥰

The red truck panel quilt will make a perfect “Winter” quilt for this quilters friend. I used the Snow Winds #pantograph and Linen #glidethread ❄️ So fun!🤩

Mom says we are getting closer to our next long trip - so they have me practicing staying CALM in the dog carrier. I feel I’m doing remarkably well since my unofficial breed name is: “Wired” Hair Fox TERROR. 👏🏼👊🏼 🤪🤗🙋🏻‍♂️

Yes #baxterboy is right - the deadline (3/21/22’ish) is approaching so please get those quilts to me soon so I can get them back to you before we head out!

Gotta love a sweet baby quilt - and with the Double Bubble #pantograph it is definitely a winner! I used Mercury #glidethread for a perfect thread match!

Moving past #baxterboy ‘s 🐖 obsession - what about this quilt? Wow right? The stars 🌟 just twinkle all on their own. This quilt was made for the Quilter’s oldest daughter and I do believe it is a smashing (king size!) success! 🥰 Quirky #pantograph and Fog #glidethread for the win 👊🏼🙌🏼

Mom says its Fri-YAY today. I think she is mixed up because I know it’s really Fri-DAY. I don’t want to make her feel bad so let’s not tell her about her mistake, ok? 🤫🤐😇😉🤦🏻‍♀️

Alleluia for FRI-YAYS, right? 🥳😉Before you start relaxing take a look at this beauty. Wonderful batik blocks with a cozy flannel backing PLUS pillow shams (yes - I can always quilt those for you as well 😊). I used my Splat #pantograph and Sand Dunes #glidethread for the perfect finish!

Mom says it’s Valentine’s Day…but I don’t know what that means. But she told me she loves me…even when I’m naughty so that’s really all that matters. ❤️🥰🤷🏻‍♂️🙆🏻‍♂️

I made this Exploding Heart Quilt in honor of my grandmother, Cleo Belle Shaw. She was born on Valentine’s Day and loved all things “hearts” ❤️💜💗 I can’t help but think of her now when I look at this quilt 🥰 I used the Curling Hearts #pantograph and Mercury #glidethread

Thanks to #sliceofpiquilts for the great pattern with cutting instructions using the #accuquilt cutter too!

Mom says I was WAY TOO DISTRACTED getting pictures today. But do you see this WHITE STUFF?? I don’t know what it is but it is sooo fun to slide on! 🤪🤪❄️❄️🤦🏻‍♀️

I finally joined the #dreambig panel bandwagon and stretched my FMQ (free motion quilting) skills to the limit on this beauty. We had way too much fun taking snow/ice pictures too! 🧊 ❄️ Stitched with multiple colors of #glidethread on my wonderful #innovalongarm
Now to decide where we will display it 🥰💜💕💙

Mom says that was NOT a squirrel 🐿 outside - but I think I really need to go outside and do a perimeter check to be sure! 👮🏼‍♀️🕵️‍♂️🥷🏼🦸🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♀️

These cold winter days are so conducive to quilting, aren’t they? I’ve been able to work on a few more of my own quilts - including this one. Such a fun quilt to make (be sure to read the instructions several time before cutting - ask me how I know this 🤦🏻‍♀️).

The quilt pattern is Knitted Star, by Low & Behold Stitchery. I used my Maple🍁 Leaf Swirl #pantograph and Warm Grey #glidethread. It is being added to my “Seasonal Quilt Wall” lineup 🥰 🍃 🍁

Putting aside #baxterboy ‘s body image issues 🤦🏻‍♀️😂 let’s take a closer look at this almost-king size Harry Potter quilt. I used the Swinging on a Star #pantograph and Lead Grey #glidethread Perfect choices! This quilter already has more requests from other family members for similar quilts (but just smaller!). 😊🧙‍♂️

Mom says this is an I-Spy quilt. She says it’s a game where you look for different fabrics in the quilt. It’s too hard for me to play…so I’ll just gaze into the distance instead. 🤓🤗🤯🤷🏻‍♂️

Riley’s “I-Spy” quilt is so fun! Her 3 year old self picked out the Dragonfly #pantograph and her grandma picked out the Peacock #glidethread. I think they both made great decisions! 🥰💕💗

Mom says when I gaze at her with all that love ❤️ in my eyes 👀 all the naughty things I’ve done leave her mind. I think that means I can control her mind 🧠 with my EYES! 👁 👁👊🏼🐶🤷🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♀️

Oh Baxter - good thing for those eyes 👀 of yours! Let’s focus our eyes 👁 on this fabulous quilt made with Kaffe Fassett fabrics. Wow! Made for the quilter’s granddaughter, I used the Blissful #pantograph and Aqua #gliderhread. I also made and attached her binding to the front and back 🥰

First client quilt of the year! 🙌🏼This was made for the quilter’s granddaughter who loves all things neutral. 🥰 I used the dejaVu #pantograph along with Cool Grey3 #glidethread Stunning! 👏🏼

Hanging old and new quilts on a yucky January day makes the day seem so much better! I’ll tell more about the Exploding Heart quilt at another time but I have had the blue snow/winter quilt for years - made with a wonderful group of quilting friends in Arvada, Colorado. I hope your Saturday is joy-filled (and ☀️!)🥰

One of my quilts that I finished over this Winter break 🥰 Hunter’s Star using the #accuquilt cutter. I even made pillow shams 🙌🏼 I used fabulously soft minky for the backing (and it is lovely on cold winter nights!), my new Chantilly #pantograph (which I 💕), and Carolina Affinity #glidethread So happy with how it turned out!

While Mom relaxed and worked on her own projects, I worked on keeping our woods free from squirrels 🐿 It’s a thankless job, but someone has to do it 😇🥵🤦🏻‍♀️

Thanks to all of you for a wonderful year of long arm quilting (swipe right to see a summary!). In 2021 I worked on 110 quilts, ran my #Innovalongarm for 145 hours and stitched 9,542,196 stitches using primarily #glidethread! Wow! 🥳🤩
After a lovely winter break spent with family and friends, I’m back in the studio working on your 2022 quilts! Check back to see the projects I worked on or finished over my break 🥰

Mom says this is the last client quilt she did in 2021. It went to a little 5 year old girl who is the granddaughter of the Nice Quilting Lady who brought it. Mom says “next year”
Is tomorrow - how can that be?? 🤯😳

A new year (starting tomorrow)! Wow! What a wonderful way to finish the year - made from clothing and other items from the little girls early life.💞 I used the DejaVu #pantograph and Linen #glidethread 💓💖

Stay tuned for a 2021 recap - but thank you all for a wonderful year. Be safe and “see you all next year”!! 😊😂

Mom says these last few weeks have flown by! I do feel like my fur (and ears) are a bit wind blown 💨 😉😂🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️Sorry #baxterboy I just had to poke fun at those ears of yours 😂

Let’s talk about this amazing, patriotic quilt! The pattern is called Summer Swag (The Quilted Life) and is intended to be used for a picnic blanket 🧺 . How perfect! I used the Time Warp #pantograph and Mercury #glidethread. Love it! 🇺🇸 ❤️🤍💙

General information

Long Arm Quilting Pricing: My prices are based on the size of your quilt and complexity of the pattern and I charge by the square inch. To calculate, measure the width and the length and multiply them together. This will give you the total square inches of your quilt. Then multiply the total square inches by the type of quilting you request. Example: A quilt which measures 60 X 72 = 4320 square inches X .018 (1.8 cents per square inch) = $77.76. I charge by the square inch in 2 different categories. 1. Simple Edge to Edge over your entire quilt – This is one simple, moderate density pantograph pattern over your entire quilt with one thread color. Cost is 2 cents per square inch. 2. Dense Edge to Edge over your entire quilt – This is a more complicated, dense pantograph pattern over your entire quilt with one thread color. Cost is 2.5 cents per square inch. There is a minimum charge of $40 for machine set-up Quilt top preparation: To assure a quality-finished product and minimize your cost, please follow these basic guidelines: •Your top must be clean and pressed well. Make sure all seams are pressed flat and points and threads clipped and removed or they may show through later. •Remove pins or basting threads. Make sure the quilt top lies flat to prevent puckering. •Square up and trim quilt top to its final size—measuring the same amount in 3 places in both directions. •Measure and press backing fabric —it should measure 6-8 inches larger than your top. •Do not leave any selvages in your project, not even in the seam of the backing. The selvage is more tightly woven and will pucker when washed. Do not pin or baste your quilt top to the batting and backing. Additional Fees: •Pressing quilt top or backing – $10.00 •Removing threads from quilt top – $10.00 per quilt top. •Piecing the backing fabric - $10.00 per seem Batting – Quality batting is required. 100% cotton, 80/20% (cotton/polyester), soy, bamboo, and wool. I prefer either 100% cotton or 80/20% cotton/poly blend. No 100% polyester or high loft please. Charge for seaming the batting - $10.00 per seam You may also purchase batting for $10/yard (90 inches wide, cotton batting) Backing – Your backing needs to be 3-4 inches wider and 3-4 inches longer than your quilt top. Charge for seaming the backing - $10.00 per seam Thread - There are many colors and types of thread to choose from. I will consult with you on what will compliment your quilt top. Additional charges apply for multiple thread colors on one quilt but there is no charge for simple overall Edge to Edge pattern using one thread color. Binding - I also provide Binding services at 2 different levels. 1. You provide the binding fabric; I make the binding and machine sew on the front with mitered corners for 20 cents per linear inch. 2. You provide the binding fabric, I make the binding, machine-sew on the front with mitered corners and hand-sew the binding on the back for 25 cents per linear inch. Quilt Trimming – If I am not binding your quilt when completed, Quilts can be trimmed for a $15 fee. Let me know how you like it trimmed – at the edge, or ¼” beyond the edge for batting fullness in the binding. Shipping information – Shipping costs vary depending on location. I can ship via UPS or USPS ground with insurance. . I provide an estimate before shipping costs are incurred. All shipping costs are in addition to quilting fees. Payment – Payment needs to be completed when your quilt is delivered. I accept cash or check and Paypal Contact me for Machine Quilting Set-up form

What I've been doing this year. Four out of five were quilted by Busy Bee Long-Arm Quilting by Debbie Lewis. She does amazing work. (I hand quilted the pink and white one.)
