Leann of She Can Quilt was asking for volunteers to offer a tutorial on her blog during her 2013 Finish Along and I readily agreed to do one on longarm quilting. She asked us to allow 30 days between the time it aired on her blog before we aired it on our own. The 30 days is up and now I would love to share this here on my own blog for those of you who may have missed it last month on Leann's blog.
This Christmas quilt was done for a customer and I quilted snowflakes all over the background. I used Signature 100% cotton thread in Mustard color and when I finished quilting the quilt, it looked like a metallic Christmas card. Always remember that your thread color plays almost as much a part of your "finished" look as your quilting design. Mustard thread is wonderful on Christmas quilts and red/white/blue patriotic quilts. I remember when my friend Regina Carter suggested I use mustard on this Christmas quilt, ...I wasn't so sure... until I took the quilt off the frame. I am now hooked... line and sinker on mustard. I turn to it more in my quilting than any other color thread.
Thanks again Leann, for allowing me the opportunity to share what little knowledge I have on longarm quilting on your blog. It sure was fun!
