469: swoon quilt quilted

I have a handful of very simple quilt tops that I made with my Swoon fabric line a couple of years ago. I quilted this one the other day after Lemony Snippet.

 I have been practicing drawing what I want to quilt:

So I keep trying to practice feathers when I get on a machine:

That's sort of my oakleaf version! I like it.

Backed this one with a print from my Dazzle collection:

Here's another allover design I've been practicing on paper:

And on the machine:

ANd this one is kind of a combination of a feather and that shell thing!

 Loops and meanders:

 more meandering:

Ahhh, I love it so much!! I wish th equilting machone fairy would visit me.

I even had someone on twitter ask if they could send me their stuff to quilt! I wish!

Off to practice on paper until I can get my paws on a machine again.

Do you send quilts out? Do you quilt yourself? Talk to me about machine quilting. I am obsessed.

xo,

melissa

Hi Melissa,

Have you considered selling your quilts? I think I would be interested!

Wow, you are off to an amazing start. Can wait to see what you are doing six months from now! I am fairly new to longarming as well. It is just so much fun! Enjoy.
