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!


Sherry’s Disappearing 9 Patch quilt

If you need to make a fast cozy quilt, grab your favorite flannel layer cake and make a Disappearing 9 Patch!  This was made using layer cake size (10”) squares, however I’ve also made one using charm pack squares (5”).  If you google Disappearing 9 Patch quilt, there are lots of free tutorials, and different ways to layout the squares.  You can also use regular cotton fabrics with this pattern, too, I did.

Sherry made this one using the softest flannel fabrics, for both the back and the front.  I decided to quilt Diagonal Plaid by Patricia Ritter on it.  Diagonal Plaid is available at https://www.urbanelementz.com/?acc=12 then search Diagonal Plaid.

I used my favorite 8020 cotton/poly blend batting from https://www.winlinetextiles.com/ she has the BEST 8020, that I’ve seen.  She also has a great selection of wool, bamboo, polyester and so on...check her out!  I also used the Omni 30 tex Silver thread from Superior Threads.

I love that I can do these straight line designs, now that I have a computer added to my Gammill.  Here is also a look at the back...so cozy!

Have a great week!  I hope you get to find some time to sew.  For me, I’m off to quilt the next quilt.
