It was time! I am not sure why, but I had been avoiding getting back into working on my longarm. It might have been the "pain" when I tried do some some minor stuff too early on after surgery. Or just the challenge of getting back in the grove.
However, I had a number of customer quilts that really needed to get done. So I decided to make last weekend a "quilting" weekend. It was fun seeing the finishing touches on some lovely quilts.
Here are a few photos of the quilts I worked on. At this point I am focusing primarily on pantographs. It is really fun to select a design that will complement the finished quilt.
One of the quilts was a Storm at Sea variation. I really wanted to do some simple custom. No heavy quilting for me yet. It was also time for me to get back to Art and Stitch.
Here is the full quilt layout with my designs. I liked the clean look and felt it complemented the quilt. (All of this was done in Art and Stitch.)
Here are a few photos of the finished quilt. Scroll down for the closeups of the quilting.
For this weeks video tutorial, I will share with you the drafting of the block and sashing designs in Art and Stitch. I also showed how I used an image from Electric Quilt as a backdrop.
