I was watching a friend quilting on the longarm today — a friend who will have to go nameless until after Christmas to avoid the spoiling of a very good surprise! She just finished a quilt she said was the best work she’d ever done — but I have to say, she is surpassing even that on this new project! I will post a pic as soon as I can… so stay tuned. I think you will be as impressed as I am!
The smile, the almost crow of delight when a quilter pulls her first quilt off the longarm and holds it in her hands. When she feels that puffy, cottony fluffy softness and knows she has created it. When she realizes that she just accomplished something she has dreamed of, hoped for, but was afraid to try. This moment — this is why I love my job! If you have been toying with the idea of learning to quilt on a longarm — do it! Come by and see me at Seldom Seen Quilting Studio, 308 S. Rogers, in downtown Waxahachie. I’m on the mezzanine at the back of My Father’s House Antique Mall, and I’m there six days a week. See you soon!
Another grandmother, another quilt, another happy, well-loved child. I sure do love to be part of these moments! What will you make when you come to Seldom Seen Quilting Studio?
