    I live in Lansing, Michigan and have had my own long arm quilting business for 1 1/2 years and quilted for a store before that.

    I have made several quilts of my own and have quilted hundreds for customers. I have a very special friend, who is also a customer, and she entered an amazing dragon quilt that she designed into a large quilt show this past weekend and won best of show out of about 400 quilts. I am so proud of her and happy that she won - she deserved it.

    I am also excited because this was the first best of show win for a quilt that I did the top quilting on. People keep saying to me ...."you have such a talent" and I always say "I just love doing it and anyone can do it with practice". I still believe that but am thrilled to see a quilt win!!

    I would encourage everyone to believe in themselves and show off your projects from time to time because we all deserve to be proud of our work!

    I wish the custom quilting would've shown up better in the picture. It was a ball to quilt!!

    Both of you did beautiful thinks with a few small pieces of fabric and lengths of thread. My heartfelt congrats.

    Glad to see that the dragon fans are still proud to be seen in the light of day. Congrats on the award. I just started to quild and hope I get the gumption to show something I will make someday.

    Wow this is a great quilt. I love her fabric choices, those batik wings look just like I would imagine dragon wings to look. Is there any way you could post some close up shot of your quilting?

    Also I truly appreciate your words of encouragement regarding long arm quilting.
