Artful Quilting

Today, I'm sharing a bit of quilting eye candy. Once a quilt is finished, it is usually sent to a longarm  (a type of machine, not a quilter with long arms) quilter who typically adds texture and beauty to a quilt if the customer wants to pay for custom quilting. Judy Powell's gorgeous bearded iris quilt was displayed it at the Winter Quilt show. She made the top and did the machine quilting herself.

This quilt with appliqué and detailed quilting was a work of art.

  1. So beautiful. My Mom's friend used to make cross-stitched quilt tops and then take them out to Lancaster (PA) and have them quilted by the Amish women. I really love the top picture in your post today, and the trapunto effect. Beautiful!

  2. I would love to own that quilt! Im sure it would be costly if one were to buy it. Im sure it is hard to put a price on such a fabulous work of art/and skill

  3. Beautiful. I'm not "that kind of quilter". My quilts are homey and not works of art like these gorgeous quilts. They deserve custom longarm quilting.

  4. I laughed out loud at your explaining "long arm quilter". That quilt. At first I thought it was three different quilts until I looked closer. Her talent is amazing. I love it.
    Blessings,
