I can’t even remember the first time I knew I wanted to make a quilt. Of course I had no idea what that would look like. As it turns out, the beginning was simple. The disappearing nine patch became my friend. The colors were determined by my five year old daughter, and I chose flannel so she could snuggle and feel comforted by mommy’s love.
After I finished the quilt top, I rented time on a long arm sewing machine and just did an all over squiggle and loop type of pattern on it. I found out at that time, I LOVED THE LONG ARM!
I didn’t imagine that I would ever want to start a business doing this, but as life came along I found out that I might want to switch from a bookkeeping business to the quilting business. Thankfully, I have an amazing husband who supports me in all my dreams. Seven years later, I have the long arm, (APQS Lucey to be exact) with a computerized quilting system.
If I were to quilt this today using Quilt Path, I think that I would use the Curlique pantograph. It has lots of rounded edges, and just seems soft to me. You can find that pantograph under the level 2 designs. Or, I might use Crazy Eights or Cake Walk under the level 1 designs. Who knows, maybe I would just do it the way I originally quilted it, as that started my on my journey of long arm quilting.
Let me take your quilt tops and help you finish them!
