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!


Kara Jo’s granddaughters quilt!

Kara Jo’s granddaughters quilt!

Kara Jo’s 12 year old granddaughter decided she wanted to make a quilt, and she did an awesome job!!!  Her choice of colors, and placement is just so cool.

Is that not seriously impressive?!!!  It laid very flat for me, too.  Sometimes quilts that are sewn on the bias tend to wave or grow in unexpected ways or spots.  This one was perfectly flat.

Kara Jo told me to pick a fun design, and I thought my Hopscotch©️ digital design, would be fun!  I hope she loves it!!  Hopscotch is available in my shop in several different digital formats: https://www.quiltingit.com/shop/hopscotch

That angle shows the awesome texture, this design creates!!

I used a white 30 tex A&E Perma Core thread, and my favorite 8020 cotton poly blend batting from Winline.

I like to use a lighter/neutral thread, when quilting multi colored quilts.  The lighter threads blend pretty nicely on the darker fabrics, which helps the design enhance the quilt.  Using a darker thread, causes the quilting design to dominate the quilt.  I really don’t like darker threads on lighter fabrics.  You can see with these close ups, just how nicely the thread blends on all these fabulous colors.

I love the little white + that they chose for the backing fabric.
