This lady (lives in a small town in Alberta, Canada) has a mail service, too - you can ship your quilt topper etc. with free shipping and she returns it finished with free shipping (long armer pays for the shipping). I think it's very important to see examples of someone's quilting before hiring them. Every quilt is so different but you get a good idea of the quality of the quilting before hiring them.
Thanks for filling me in on that. I really need to find a good LA person closer by. I don't mind shipping, but not to Canada, unfortunately. The cost and delay in customs would make it financially prohibitive.

A beautiful blue and tan quilt and your longarmer did a wonderful job. I suspect that is a computer driven design. The intersections where the crescents meet and nest would be near impossible to get that precise hand guided. A perfect quilting choice for this top.
