Welcome to Quilting It. 

My name is Leisha, and I have been longarm machine quilting for nearly 13 years.  I also have been designing longarm pantograph designs for 4 years, with Urban Elementz

Thanks for stopping by!


Gone Quilting and a couple of flower table runners...

Gone Quilting and a couple of flower table runners...

One thing I love, when I’m quilting small items that are the same width, is to quilt them all on one quilt back.  It makes my job easier and faster, and makes it cheaper for you.  

These three designs are more of the new design releases available from Laser Cut Quilts.  I’m not sure the name of these patterns, they are new releases for this quilt market.  Check out Laser Cut Quilts on Instagram or go to their website for more information on all the products they carry.  Just a reminder, their specialty is to have all of your fabric pieces cut with fusibles and ready to iron down for all your appliqué projects.

This super cute Gone Quilting pattern, is the perfect gift for the quilt lover in your life.  Including a wind blown quilt, out of the back of the truck.  The old fashioned truck, is also a great touch.

The texture on these quilts, is so fun to create.  I call those pebbles...echoed pebbles...I try and keep my quilting as clean as possible, but going around the circles a few times, creates some great definition.  The  trees and the slight quilting in the car, were fun to add, too.

I used Perma Core 30 tex Antique Cream from A&E thread, also red and charcoal thread from them as well.  The green thread is by Toldi Lock, and I’m not sure where I got it.  I also used 8020 cotton/poly blend batting for each of these.

This super sweet and sunny table runner, is just the thing to brighten up your home.

I used white 30 Tex Perma Core poly wrapped poly thread by A&E, to quilt this quilt.  I also used the 8” Edge ruler from Linda at thequiltedpineapple.com

To quilt this one, I wanted to make sure everything popped, so I quilted around everything and then quilted right up to each appliqué.  Those little 1/2” on point squares are my favorite...and so is the swirly feathers that I quilted freehand.  They sure dress up this quilting.

I love this runner, too!  The colors are vibrant, and how cute is that bird!!

I used several different colors of thread to quilt this one...all the thread changes were worth it.  Unfortunately...I don’t remember which threads went where.  I suggest blending threads as best you can.  But it’s also okay to use one of the other colors as an accent.  If you look at the orange center of the daisy flowers (the one with the yellow background) you can see that I used yellow thread to quilt the cross hatch design.  It looks lovely.  For a closer look, scroll down a few pictures.

Lines are one of my favorites to add, intermixed with all the soft curvy designs.  They just complement one another so well.
