Ready for Christmas? I would say I am not mentally ready more than anything. This has been such a seemingly long year, yet it feels like it should be December 1st still. Anyone else feel the same?
Red and white quilts are my absolute favorite! I think most of you have guessed that by now. I was fortunate enough to quilt a few recently for clients. I always pretend they are my quilts until I have to ship them off to their rightful homes. 🙂 This beauty was pieced by my client, Kim. Kim is a prolific quilter and all her tops are amazing!! I love how her quilt looks with the quilting!
Although, I love to express my creativity through my custom quilting, I have grown to appreciate edge-to-edge quilting so much. The love, care and attention to detail I give my custom quilts, I do the same for e2e quilts that are sent to me for quilting. There is definitely a skill to computerized edge-to-edge quilting. I treat them ALL as if they are show quilts. Sometimes I have to perform what I refer to as “quilt surgery”…meaning I have to remove a dark, pesky tread showing through from under the fabric.
I highly recommend this tool to ALL quilters, not just longarmers. It is the Soft Touch Tread Pic available in my shop here. I can easily pluck them out without damage to the fabric. It is a miracle tool!
I am often asked what products I use on a day-to-day basis, especially what I mark my quilts with. I put together an essential set of all my favorites. Products that I use every single day. You save a little on buying the set versus buying individually. Available here.
I am adding goodies to my online shop every day. I do not want to sell just anything. I am only adding products that I use and love.
Holiday Sale is still going on!! With Free Shipping on orders over $50. Shop here.
We are working hard to ship orders as soon as they come in because we know transit times are longer than usual. I am keeping my elves very busy at The Quilted Pineapple! Scott has informed me more than once he would have quit if he was really working for me. LOLOLOL!!
