Longarm Quilting for Someone New

My cousin's sister-in-law contacted me out of the blue to ask if I would longarm a quilt for her. The funny thing is that my cousin lives in Ohio and the sister-in-law lives in a northwestern suburb of Milwaukee. It's probably a 40 minute drive from her house to mine. The surprise for me is that she remembered that I was a quilter. I was definitely honored by her request and immediately said yes.

The quilting challenge for me was that there is a block that's embroidered and she doesn't want any quilting over it. This is something I haven't done before but I love new challenges.

She chose her thread.

She chose her quilt design.

And away we go!

I went around the embroidery as best as I could.

I'm happy to report that she loved the way it turned out. She is new to quilting and is loving it so she asked me if I would be her quilter. I absolutely said yes!

In the meantime, friends of ours asked Jeff to make a 4-foot tall wooden tree. They have a cat that likes to get into trouble and they wanted something to replace a Christmas tree. Here's what they asked for. They love it and will use it this year unfinished and stain and seal it in the summer when they can do that outside. I like it so much I might just have to ask him to make me one.
