My very first post


I am a Longarm Machine Quilter based in Melbourne and about to start on my blogging journey. Over time I hope to show some of my customer quilts as well as some of my own quilts. I do both edge-to-edge and custom quilting and would like to start by sharing a beautiful edge-to-edge quilt I quilted recently.

The quilt is from the pattern "Single Girl Quilt" by Denise Schmidt and was made by my customer Peta. The quilt was made for her daughter with gorgeous modern fabrics with a pale pink for the background. Peta wanted to keep the quilting fairly simple and not overpowering, so we decided on a swirly pattern called "Windy Meandering".

Below is a photo of this gorgeous quilt:-

The following photo shows some of the detail of the quilting as well as the beautiful fabrics used:-

This particular quilt seems to be quite popular at the moment - for another example of this quilt being made see:
