How Did You Quilt That?

I’ve been getting asked this question ever since the modern color version of the Sew Sweet Sampler made its debut . . . So today, I’m here to explain my process of quilting it.

Modern Quilt Magic

It’s finally here!! Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s new book is out! It’s called Modern Quilt Magic, and these quilts really look like they take magic to make, but she breaks it down and makes them really simple.

Rose Marie’s “Abloom” Quilt

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, […]
