Just a couple of quick pictures of Lesley The Cuddle Quilter's beautiful Country Charmer quilt. Lesley was so sweet and organized the Country Charmer Quilt-A-Long which put my pattern on the map......all around the world. When Lesley finished her quilt top, I told her I would quilt it for her if she wanted me to.
Let me begin by saying Lesley is an excellent piecer. As Quilt Sue would say, "Lesley didn't loose any pointy bits." Her quilt loaded on to the machine so evenly....she's a machine quilters dream come true. I don't consider myself a machine quilter.....I just happen to have a long-arm that I use for my own quilts.
The lighting for this picture is way off, but I wanted to be able to show the quilting in the double borders. Taking pictures of a quilt while it is on the long-arm is a bit dicey between the lighting and the angles.
Lesley and I have what I'm going to call "Sister Stashes." Our tastes are so similar and I have so many of the same fabrics, this quilt could be mine. In fact is it mine until I mail it back to Nova Scotia!
I'm taking my time on your quilt Lesley. I'll be working on it between soccer games, swim meets and cheerleading this weekend. You can always come and virtually visit with your quilt right here. Visiting hours are always open!
I'm taking a quilting break today while I go to the Pacific International Quilt Festival. If anyone in blogland plans on attending, please stop by the In Between Stitches Booth #725 and say hi to Erica and Melissa. I'll be wandering around the show looking at quilts in utter amazement and shopping at the hundreds of vendor booths. This sounds exhausting but someone has to do it!
