Hello Everyone,

As many of you know, I am a long arm quilter.  I have been in business since 2000.  Since I am still away, I thought I might just share with you some quilting the I have done on a recent customer quilt.

Quilting can do many things for a quilt, enhance it, be the stand out on the quilt (decorative), or just be utilitarian (keep the quilt together and simple).

You can make it dense, loose, modern, traditional, really the sky is the limit!

On this quilt it was decorative, yet modern.

Dense, yet traditional with a modern twist.  So many options and it really depends on the quilt and your vision for the quilt.  In addition to those factors you should always consider thread choices too.  Do you want the quilting to be seen or recede back into the quilt?  

Your long arm quilter will be able to answer whatever questions that you might have.  But definitely communicate what your vision for your quilt is for the long arm quilter.  This way there is no misunderstanding.

How do you like your quilts quilted?

Until Next Time...
