Oh my, I have so much to share that I can actually spread it across a few posts this week.
The first item up for discussion is that my Stars and Stripes quilt is back from the quilter! Yippee!
I selected LiMa Sews to do the longarm quilting. I had been following her blog for awhile (link here to Elvy Crafts blog), and recently she announced her quilting services. I believe she and her husband are doing this in partnership, which is great! I picked the obvious choice of pantograph for the quilt (Stars and Loops) and sent it off to Linh to get her going.
Quick turnaround and the quilting is beautiful! Perfect job. And the return package was just as nice too…
Tied up in a perfect navy ribbon and packaged in a brown paper wrap inside the box, with my extra backing strips neatly folded and tucked within.
Cute as can be! Here is the link to her website for the longarm services.
It feels really good to get a quilt top converted into a quilt, for sure. I even got the binding strips done and clipped onto the quilt for sewing this week. Once that is done, I’ll take some final pictures outside on a good sunny day and post them. Hopefully I can capture the quilting design well in the pictures.
Sneak peak for tomorrow… Avalon strips! I opened my new jelly roll in record time!
Happy Monday! Thanks for stopping by today!
