TTMT # 135 – February 14, 2023 – Happy Valentine’s Day

This week I talk about quilting three quilts for a client. Two of them were the blue sister quilts I’ve been talking about. Then one was an allover swirly flower. They have all been picked up. I also talk about the scarf I am knitting. It is getting longer. Many thanks to Jeanie for the fabric boa. What a fun surprise to get for Valentine’s. My TTMT friends are the best. Lastly my Mystery Quilt Amber is starting this week.

Another one of the Sister quilts custom quilted with curved cross hatching, feathers, spiral feathers,
The back of the quilt.
All over swirly flower for the quilting on this little quilt.
The quilting on this quilt includes elongated spirals, wishbones, and paisleys. I love the design process and how this quilt turned out.
The spiral wreath in the center with wishbone orange peals in the middle turned out really neat. I also like how the spirals weave up and down going around the outer edge of the quilt with the wishbone quilting setting it off.

  1. You are so festive and your flowers are lovely.

    Jeanie is amazing, isn’t she! I love how excited you are about your goodies. 🙂

    Your quilting looks beautiful, Michelle. Your custom work is just jaw-dropping!

    I definitely understand starting over on your knitting. Your progress looks good!

    1. Thank you. My husband doesn’t give me flowers very often, so it was a total surprise. I love Jeanie’s gift. The fuzzy pen is great. I’ve always loved playing with them.

  2. A red [ink and white quilt would be lovely. 🙂

    Your custom quilting is so wonderful. You are clearly already at home with your new longarm.

    The boa was so fun! It was a neat gift.

    I have started my daughter’s hat over severa times already. I think my knitting days are mostly over. I went out and purchased the round looms again because they make knitting hats so much easier on my hands than using the knitting needles and I plan to stick to crochet I think for other stuff, blankets scarves, etc.

    1. I learned to longarm on a Gammill in 2010 and I have been a longarm instructor since 2020. I have already quilted 20 items since getting it set up. Two of the “quilted” items are just practice pieces, however, they might become bags or just a sampler that I can show customers.
