I don’t know if I’ve mentioned that I quilt professionally on a longarm quilting machine. I have enjoyed this for over 4 years, now, and I’ve been so fortunate to have adventurous, artistic clients.
Recently, Monte brought me a special quilt that she had designed for her daughter. She had originally planned to hand-quilt it; lucky for me, she changed her mind and let me quilt for her!
Monte made the quilt using vintage linens– tablecloths, handkerchiefs, yardage.
This is the corner and final border design. The custom swag border was achieved using Constantine Quilts‘ swag templates.
All in all, I am satisfied with the quilting. The only compromise I had to make was within the larger pieced blocks, due to some thicker than normal seams and flaps with the vintage fabric. Monte has plans to do some handquilting in those blocks, which will add to the appeal of this beauty.
I hope to see the quilt hanging at some shows this coming year! If you see it, say hi!
