So, I have been a longarming fool! While I work on customer quilts on one machine, I try to keep one of mine on the other machine. (I have two Gammills.) Even if I just throw on a little *quickie*, I am trying to get this down to a manageable pile! It will also help me out when we move, as I intend to have an Open House to show my quilting in an effort to drum up some more longarming business. After all, I am moving to a completely different area! So, I guess you could call it a one-woman quilt show!
Hopefully, if the girls from the shop are reading, they are going to be very proud of me. Wait until they see this one! This was a pattern from Meme's Quilts called Button Weeds. It hung as a flimsie for a little while, and who knew that the quilting and buttons would add so much!
You can't see the quilting in the outer borders, but I stitched along the lines of the plaid. I stitched in the ditch around all of the applique, and you can see the linear stitching in the background. When I get an awesome project like this done, it just inspires me to be more productive! GW are you proud of me????
So, what motivates and inspires you to jump in there and finish? I would love to hear from you! And....if you are counting, that's NINE finishes this year! Woo Hoo!
