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

Beth’s Patchwork Sky quilt

Beth’s Patchwork Sky quilt

Beth made this stunning Patchwork Sky quilt for her son and soon to be daughter in-law.  I absolutely love the navy’s and pinks, with a touch of rose gold metallics in the fabrics.  The pattern is Patchwork Sky by Camille from Thimble Blossoms... here is the link to this pattern: http://thimbleblossoms.bigcartel.com/product/patchwork-sky-pdf-pattern

I showed Beth a couple of pantograph designs and she chose “Good Vibrations #1” by Patricia Ritter, available at https://www.urbanelementz.com/?acc=12  Which I think is such a great fit for this quilt.  I did the wavy lines 1” apart, because it is backed in a navy Cuddle (minky) from Shannon Fabrics, and too much quilting on quilts backed with minky, makes them stiff.

Beth brought a cotton/poly blend batting.  I used a white A&E Perma Core 30 Tex thread to quilt it.

I love this close up...you can see those beautiful rose gold metallics.

I had to share the texture on this Cuddle™️ (minky)!!!  Side note...when it comes to minky, Shannon Fabrics does it best!  They have the softest and it’s definitely more plush, the quality exceeds any other minky, they have a variety of different colors and patterns.  This particular minky is 90” wide too, which is great for those quilts that are a touch bigger than the 60” wide minky.  I tell my clients to use the 90” for the length of their quilt, if that works with the size of the quilt.  I have a great video talking about minky on my YouTube channel https://youtu.be/g2SDbAcL56g
