Long Arm Quilting!


I'm excited to announce that I have started to take long arm clients! Take a peek at some of the photos below, and feel free to contact me via email with any questions!

I have been doing a lot of quilting for my friend, Jessica, recently! She started out as a bag pattern designer and then last year she bought my favorite local quilt shop. She is still designing bags, and has started writing quilt patterns as well. So far I have quilted all of her pattern samples, and it's been so fun!

This quilt is her Sequence pattern. Unfortunately I forgot to snap a photo of the full quilt, but I will do that the next time I'm in the shop! I really love how this turned out!

My mom also sends me the occasional quilt top to work on! It's a fun challenge, as my mom is a bit more traditional than I am. I've heard that this quilt is going on her bed...I can't wait to see it the next time I visit:


This is another Sew Many Creations pattern, called Shuffle:


Here's a shot of the completed top:


Here is a close up of the Intertwined pattern:


This is the Ripple pattern, one of the first quilts that I long armed for Jessica!


I love the look of this one - I have another version on the long arm now!


This is also the Shuffle pattern, in a more traditional fabric line:


I've shown this one before, the Triforce quilt!

Triforce Quilt for baby Linc!

And then there's the circus peanut quilt!

Diamonds for Ducklings Baby Quilt

I must admit, it's scary to put my work out there for the world to see! I have really enjoyed long arming so far, though, and I especially love quilting for others, and witnessing their excitement when they see their work all quilted up.

Right now my turn around is about 1-2 weeks after I receive your quilt. That means you could have your quilt back before the Christmas holiday!

You can also find me on Instagram (thegirlwhoquilts) and facebook now! I tend to use Instagram the most, and there are lots of in progress shots in my feed.
