Rose Marie’s “Abloom” Quilt

Since the quilt is chock full of negative space, Rose Marie asked me if I would quilt it and fill up all that negative space with lots of modern quilting. […]

After ten days away, Ivy is home from her spa treatment. (Wouldn’t YOU love to spend ten days at a spa? I know I would!) While she was gone, I was a nervous wreck, fretting over all the quilts I have yet to get done before Christmas. But she came home yesterday. The guys from […]

Susan’s Bridal Staircase

Posted on May 3, 2016 by prairiemoonquilts in Longarm Quilting, Quilts

I love being a longarm quilter, but never more than when I get to finish a vintage quilt top for a customer. It does my heart good to know that a forgotten unfinished quilt top is finally getting its turn at becoming a finished quilt that can be used and loved. I’ve done several recently, […]

Grandma’s Lone Star

I have a very, very dear friend named Brandon. One of the reasons we’re such good friends is because we share the same sense of humor! We used to work together, and occasionally, he’d see me working on a quilt over my lunch hour. And he’d name it for me. The name always began with […]

No. 500

Posted on October 17, 2014 by prairiemoonquilts in Longarm Quilting

No fanfare. No party hats. No confetti fell from the ceiling. No horns. No balloons. No cake even. Just the birds chirping. Jasper bleating in the back yard. And My Cowboy: “I don’t hear that machine runnin’ — git ta work!” Last week, I quilted the 500th quilt on my longarm, since getting it in […]
