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 Adorable Easter Pillows

Sherry’s Adorable Easter Pillows

Sherry has me quilt a few of these bench pillow fronts, and they turned out so cute!!  The pattern is by Kimberbell Designs, and she has a digitized version if you do machine embroidery.

It’s so fun to add all these fun little details to these bench pillows.

I used white 30 Tex A&E Perma Core thread and 8020 cotton poly blend batting from Winline.

See that flower quilted on the green windmill block???  I quilted that using my 3” and 4” Circle2 rulers.

My Circle2 rulers can be used on a longarm and sewing machine (with a quilting foot).  The circles range in size from 2” to 13”.  They come in green or clear, and are made in America with high quality acrylic.  AND right now they are 10% off, use code “THANKYOU10” at checkout.   https://www.quiltingit.com/shop?category=Rulers

I also used Linda from https://thequiltedpineapple.bigcartel.com/ Edge rulers to quilt the lines throughout.

I love all the details...from the fabrics, to the embellishments, to the colors...it helps the quilting pop!

This overlapping circle design is something I just started quilting recently...and it’s so fun to do.  I actually have a large quilt to do soon, and it will be the entire background filler.  So excited!!  Below is a video of me freehand quilting this design.

I will blog about this lamb quilt soon.

Okay, so how cute is mr. bunny???  I wanted to add some fur looking texture to his face.  Check out the video below to see how to quilt this freehand grassy design.   

I love how forgiving this design is, and it works on a variety of different quilts.  Here are a couple of quilts I’ve quilted it on recently:  behind Little Boy Blue - https://www.quiltingit.com/blog/2019/1/1/beckys-nursery-rhyme-quilt?rq=Becky and behind a couple of umbrellas on this fun quilt - https://www.quiltingit.com/blog/2018/11/17/cindys-raincheck-quilt-including-28-different-background-quilting-designs?rq=Raincheck
