I got a longarm quilting machine in December 2013 and my days, some nights and most weekends have been devoted to Louise. Louise is a Gammill Classic Plus longarm machine on a 12 foot frame, and I love her to death!
I have a nice customer base already and my Facebook page is where you can see all the quilts I've quilted over the past 2 and 1/2 years. I don't get much sewing done anymore, I'm so busy with Louise. I still take time for my Quilts of Valour group and the women who join me every month keep me pretty busy too. They're a very prolific group of piecers and I have more tops in the queue to be quilted than I can possibly get done in a month or two, that's how prolific they are.
No blog post is complete without pictures so here are a few quilts that have been quilted on Louise in the past couple of weeks.
|Custom Quilted for Brenda, a gift to Bethell House for their Fall fundraiser|
|Totally made from scraps by Susan. I love the colour in this quilt and how it creates a lovely rainbow|
|A Vintage top from Sondra that is to become a wedding gift this summer|
|Another view of the top to show the piecing instead of the texture created by the quilting.|
