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 table runners...

Sherry’s table runners...

Sherry dropped off these lovely table runners for me to quilt, and they are from the Tablerunner Bliss book by Sherri Falls.  

 I decided to do edge to edge (computerized) quilting on each of them, and try out a couple of designs I haven’t quilted before...and I also used a couple of favorites that are from https://www.urbanelementz.com/?acc=12

For the first quilting design I used “Hatch Border 2”, which came on my Gammill Statler machine.  I love how it turned out on this particular runner.

I used a light cream Antique Cream 30 Tex Perma Core thread from A&E and my favorite 8020 cotton poly blend Winline batting.  I’m not sure which line of fabric this is from.

I love this block!!  And who else loves 1” squares, I certainly do.  Reminds me of my Modern Building Blocks quilt, that I quilted 1” squares on...they werent on point like these are.

A close up is always great, too!

I thought for this cute table runner, I would use Patricia Ritter and my “Marmalade”©️ pantograph design, which is available at https://www.urbanelementz.com/marmalade.html

I love the fabrics that Sherry used for this one, some of them are by Corey Yoder.  This runner is also the one on the front of the book.

I used a white Perma Core 30 Tex A&E thread, and Winline’s 8020 cotton poly blend batting.

I love the x fabric in this block, I’m thinking this is a Cotton and Steel fabric.  Quilting out Marmalade©️, never gets old.

Quilting adds so much personality to any project.

For this runner I thought edge to edge circles would be fun!!  I used a design called Circles, that came on my Gammill Statler machine.  It isn’t a continuous design, it only quilts out 10 circles at a time, so I wouldn’t quilt this particular design on a quilt because it would take forever.  It looks so cute on this little runner.  There are 520 circles quilted on this...which does include the ones that quilted on the batting to make sure all the edges were quilted.

If you zoom in, you can see all the polka dots in the background...it’s all about dots for this runner.

How cute it this flower?!?!?!!!  The fabrics in this particular runner are by Bonnie and Camille by Moda.

I love that the Statler can stitch out all these lovely circles.

This bright happy table runner has some daisy flowers in the fabrics, so I thought that Flower Child by Apricot Moon Designs would be a great design to quilt it on.  It’s available at https://www.urbanelementz.com/?acc=12 then search for Flower Child.

That yellow gingham border is so cute!!!  I’m not sure what line of fabric this one is either.

I used a white 30 Tex Perma Core thread and an 8020 cotton poly blend batting.
