I had the pleasure of custom quilting Mary Telfords beautiful quilt last July, and have been keeping it under wraps until now as we had decided that we would enter it into The Festival of Quilts 2016 which has just taken place last week.
Both Mary and I are thrilled to bits, to have taken a first place prize in the Two Person category this year.
This is a stunning perfectly pieced quilt made from a pattern by Marshia McCloskey called "Vintage Moments" which I custom quilted for Mary with freehand quilting and ruler work.
The lighting was not that great for photographs at the time that I took them, being there after hours this year demoing longarming on the Mettler thread stand, which I will post a separate post about very soon.
I promise that I am going to make a conscious effort to update my blog on a weekly basis, as some customers were telling me that they do not do Facebook or Instagram but follow my blog, but if you want to catch up with my latest quilts, then head over to my facebook page J-Quilts longarm quilting or my Instagram page j_quilts where I share lots of photos on a regular basis.
