Birthday Wishes

I absolutely LOVE this birthday card from Jarrod and Claire. Along with this very creative rendition of a long-arm machine, came a gift certificate to Over The Top Quilting Studio so I can play on the APQS long arm machines again. Drew participated in this birthday gift too! Woo hoo!!

Commissioned quilt for friends

Some friends commissioned a baby quilt for their soon-to-be-born first grandson. They assisted in the selection of patterns, fabrics, etc to match the baby’s nursery. It was a fun quilt to make and to quilt for these special friends.

Sampler Quilt from Sunday Best Quilts book by Sherri McConnell and Corey Yoder

Sherri McConnell published information on her blog to make this sampler quilt based on patterns in the Sunday Best Quilts book that she co-authored with Corey Yoder. I finished piecing it early this year, but have just finished quilting it myself at Over The Top Quilting Studio in Cedar Park, Texas.

It’s kind of big for my tall husband to hold up! He does a great job though.

New King size quilt

The April issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine had this quilt on the cover. I loved it and wanted to make it. When my husband saw it, he loved it too. I decided to expand on Diane Tomlinson’s design to enlarge it and make it king size. I quilted it on an APQS Millie longarm machine at Over The Top Quilting Studio in Cedar Park, TX. The really cool part is most of this quilt was made from my fabric stash!

Latest finish

I was able to quilt this pineapple quilt (pattern by Sherri L McConnell of A Quilting Life) on the APQS Millie 30 long arm machine at Over The Top Quilting Studio in Cedar Park, TX. I used the computer on this one to quilt a Celtic Knot design. There are so many choices of quilting patterns, but I really liked how this turned out.

Long Arm Fun!

I’ve recently been going down to Over The Top Quilting Studio in Cedar Park, TX where you can rent long arm machines by the hour for those bigger quilting jobs. It’s been so much fun using these incredible machines, and I can’t recommend Over The Top highly enough! Here’s one of my latest projects!
