Playing Catch-up

I’m sorry it has been so long since I wrote on a regular basis. I do tend to keep up with my Facebook page   but I’ve been so overwhelmed with the planning, and lots of manual labor and health issues trying to get Little Old Lady Quilting Studio ready to open the end of March.  I had also foolishly planned to have a solo show at The Electric Company & More art gallery in downtown Bedford opening at the same time. And I agreed to do a Artists Market Brunch at the Bower Center For the Arts the last weekend in April. All of these displaying  all the work I have been creating for the last year (that which had not sold already… ) On top of that i was building my clientele for the long-arm-machine finishing quilts, and doing an average of two of quilts a week on the long arm besides the thread art commissions I have I needed to be creating.
To say the least it was a mad couple of months.

I’m going to try and write weekly at least to keep the world posted of what Little Old Lady Quilting Studio is up to.

My first quilting client in Bedford brought me this magnificent hand done needle point block quilt made by mother and daughter.

Lovely queen-sized quilt top consisting of 35 blocks all hand stitched and then hand sew together.
Each block was 18″ by 17″.

I wanted to quilt this very simply to give it strength and stability , but not to interfere with the hand stitched embroidery.

I ended up stitching around the core of the medallion, and then tracing the outside of the medallion and filling in the negative space with a basic stipple to make the design pop.

The client was very happy with the finished quilt. as was I!
