Quilting Marathon

My June/July quilting marathon has begun. I have travel and family time already booked both months so my goal of quilting 12 tops is modest but there’s a decent chance I can surpass it if all goes as planned. I’ll also have a few piecing projects to work on.

First up is a Quick Strippie – it’s been 2+ months since I’ve turned on the longarm and I felt a little rusty but #1 of 12+ is quilted.

I pieced a backing and the batting for #2 and that’s loaded on the longarm and ready to quilt tomorrow.


  1. Let the marathon begin! I have no doubt you will get them done. I will soon have 3 quilts at my quilters. She is backed up 3 months which is good for her. My quilter is Krista Moser. She has patterns out in quilt shops and online and does classes all over the US. She does beautiful work and is worth the wait. But I do wish I had a longarm machine. Excited to see the rest of your work!

  2. Hi again, Mary! I can just FEEL the enthusiasm in your words. You are inspiring me to get going on my own quilting. My friend just purchased her first longarm and she’s going to let me give it a try. I can’t wait! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
