One of the things I most love about longarm quilting is the variation of quilts I get to quilt.

I did this lovely quilt for Carolyn.

Such a striking quilt. 
Carolyn picked the pattern Surf's Up for the quilting.

And this lovely quilt of Faye's.

Faye loves my Circle Lord boards and she chose the Swirl board for this quilt.

I did this custom quilt for Marilyn before Christmas

I still have a few more quilts from before Christmas to show you; maybe later this week.

We had a lovely long weekend. Even got a bit of snow on Monday; the rain is back today and all the snow is gone again. It never seems to last long here.

I enjoyed spending the weekend finishing a few of my own quilts.

I quilted my modern hexagon quilt using a baptist fan pattern

I also got Rhonda's table runner I made her for Christmas finally quilted.

I quilted it using the Circle Lord board Bubbles.

 Sharon pieced this lovely Judy Niemeyer Double Wedding Ring Star.

Sharon wanted the quilting kept simple so I left the arches alone and did some simple echo like quilting in the background and the points.

The quilting doesn't take away from the piecing at all.

I also did another Judy Niemeyer quilt for Carol. This one is Which Ways North.

This one I quilted using my Circle Lord Board Swirls.

 And last but certainly not least, this stunner by Nancy; Thistle Pods.

Lots of swirls

And stitching in the ditch

Monday is a holiday here and I'm looking forward to spending the weekend finishing, and maybe starting, a few things for myself.

My new favorite

Place to hang out on line is Missouri Quilt Company. I love watching their tutorials; always fun things to discover.

I went out of my comfort zone and made this after watching one of their tutorial videos.

I still need to figure out how to quilt it but I love it already.

On my machine this week is this beautiful Judy Niemeyer quilt made by Sharon.

I had a minor machine issue on Thursday so I lost an entire day of quilting but I still hope to get it finished up today.
