I Quilt

I don't talk about it a lot these days but it does not mean I am not doing it, just have so many projects going right now that there is only so much room to talk about quilting.  I am a quilter, a piecer and a longarm lover. I longarm quilt on a Handi Quilter Avante 18. It's a WONDERFUL machine and I would encourage anyone who is thinking about a long arm to give it a look.  Simple to use, very well constructed, one sexy quilting beast :)

I am what is referred to is a Maverick Quilter. I do only freestyle work and I do it the way it pleases me breaking rules left and right along the way. The quilt you see here is from my trip to Utah to hang with the wonderful people from Handi Quilter after they chose my story ( along with others) for their ad campaign this year...  Birds on a Wire oddly enough was only the second quilt I had ever made.. funny that it is the one that went with me so from that point alone it holds a special place in my heart.


You can see a bit more of this quilt on the blog of my favorite quilting/fabric store.. Sew BEE it    and if you are looking for a Maverick Quilter for your next project  click on the tab at the top of the page for more details. I accept quilts by invitation only an have very few spots left for the year but do have a soft spot for baby quilts so if you sweet talk me I might be able to find a time slot  but no promises :)

** edit **   My mention of Handi Quilter and my machine  is done totally with out compensation at this time but I was the former winner of lots-o-swag from them and stil feel all warm and fuzzy about them.. just say'n.

Stopping by from SITS. Your quilt is so neat. My mom is a big quilter and has really gotten more active into it lately, but I've never seen her do anything like your Bird on a Wire quilt. I'll have to send her to your blog to check it out.

Wow, you are so multi-talented! I have a soft spot for quilts, as both my grandmothers were quilters, but I've never tried it yet. Once I started cutting some squares, and got quickly overwhelmed and stopped. :)
Your birds on a wire project is fabulous!
