This quilt was pieced and tied by Melissa's friends in California. She asked me to quilt it. I did 'contour map' in the center; outlined the red border by stitching in the ditch and then did a twisted ribbon in the outer border.
I am a long-arm quilter and am quilting for the public in my home. I LOVE adding the quilting to tops and seeing the design added to the color and pattern already there. I have been quilting for about 35 years.
I am the wife of an Engineer and Scouter and mother of six great people (5 are out of the 'nest' and no longer children!)and grandmother to 7 boys. I have lots of quilts. Some are finished, some are tops, some are blocks, some are just ideas in my head. I may be obsessive-compulsive about quilts ......maybe I can direct that tendency to diet and exercise.... not likely. ;P
