A few weeks ago I posted on the boards of SCQuilters asking for recommendations of a Long Arm Quilter to quilt this quilt. I had about 10 replies, mostly encouraging me to give it a go myself! One of the replies was from Gillian from Designer Quilts which is only a few suburbs away from where I am. She said she is actually buying a long arm quilter and then going to start hiring it out so you can go to her studio and use it quilting yourself! Which I think is a fantastic idea and can't wait till she has it up and running. I mean look at the photo! Here I am stuffing this quilt through my little machine's window. I'm just stitching in the ditch on the diagonal for the pinwheels and I must admit it is a bit boring quilting wise. So am thinking of doing a little circle swirl in the squares of the pinwheel that aren't quilted, does that make any sense??!
Getting off topic now... Here's a meme I picked up off Nicole Bridges blog. Just for a bit of fun.
