    A QB member sent me this quilt for Long arm quilting. She let me have creative freedom to do as I wished. She had great piecing...which is such a treat!

    The thing I love about making my own scrap quilts is that as I am peicing or quilting along I think of all the lovely things I made with the fabric before it was considered a scrap....this quilt had so many fabrics that I own in my own stash or that I have used..so it was as if I was visiting memory lane and it wasn't even my quilt.

    I love the way it turned out of course...I seem to fall in love with any quilt that comes my way....

    I quilted this freehand in my INNOVA long arm. No computers or Pantographs.

    I put a flower with trailing ribbons in each center and then a squiggly line to follow all of the strings in the blocks...I love the back almost as much as the front.

    Thank you for looking!

    You do wonderful work. And, I agree, the back is as nice as the front.

    Beautiful work! I used to have a long arm and would quilt for my sister in turn for taking care of my dogs when I went on vacations plus I always gave her my scraps so like you it was fun to quilt and see how/ what she did with my scraps!! I miss my longarm. but don't have room for one now.
