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!

Baby ➕➕➕ quilt

Baby ➕➕➕ quilt

I love this quilt that my mom made for one of my cousins, who is having her first baby.  I also love navy and ➕’s, such a great combo.  


I have seen several tutorials on plus quilts, using longer strips of fabric, instead of cutting a bunch of 5” squares and laying them out.  Search plus quilts and you should find some.  I love that the strips are running vertical in this one, normally the ones that I see all run horizontal...it’s nice to see another option.  Both are great!


I decided to use one of Patricia Ritter and my pantograph designs to quilt it, this one is called Arrowhead©️, and can be found at Urban Elementz.  Or by clicking here: https://www.urbanelementz.com/arrowhead.html


I used a cream Perma Core 30 tex thread from A&E and an 8020 cotton/poly batting from Winline.  


To make it extra cozy, we backed it with Cuddle (minky) by Shannon Fabrics.  It’s always fun to see what the quilting design looks like on the minky.  I actually have a great YouTube video of tips on how to use minky.  Click here...   https://youtu.be/g2SDbAcL56g


Hope you have a great week!
