Although a few slipped through the cracks, here is an end-of-the-year gallery of the customer quilts I had the pleasure of working on in 2011:
Full Custom Quilting:
Freehand All-over Quilting:
In 2011 I had the pleasure of teaching 4 women how to make their first quilt:
And 4 young women how to use a longarm quilting machine:
Four student quilts were finished in my studio:
And finally, 2 of my own creations were finished:
What a year! I've exhausted myself just looking at all of the work that's been accomplished in the past 365 days. In the grand scheme of things, it's just a fraction of what most professional quilters seem to accomplish. Especially now that computer quilting has changed the pace of finishing quilts.
But here in the middle of absolutely nowhere, my little longarm machine quilting business has been thriving enough to keep me busy. And blessed.
Have a great New Year!
