    Sheagatzi got a reaction from BonnieJ in A modern quilt for my bed   
    I call myself the 'cobbler with no shoes'  because I quilt for everyone else except me!  
    So my goal was to make a quilt for our new house,   our new bed....
     
    I wanted calm neutral colours reminding me of sand or pebbles.....I made this quilt  using the pattern "Sweet Garden" from Carolina Patchworks.    I was intending to make the entire king size with this pattern -  and I did.  Then I hated it, so I chopped 2/3s of the pattern off and added white for some neutral breathing space.  
     
    Simple quilting in between the blocks.   
    And then I got carried away in the white.     [

    so sorry about the water troubles! yikes!    no fun at all....
     
    I would raise the levelling bar if it is catching on your machine somehow.  I know sometimes the leader gets caught/trapped stuck in between that bar and my machine sometimes if I don't completely advance the leader grips  (when I am shorter on backing)

    I did a blog post a few years ago on how to take quilt pictures ( indoors and outdoors) with just a basic camera, before I got my Canon Rebel T4i. 
    You can check it out here.
    It's all about the lighting!

    Glad it's picking up for you -  slow and steady.  Your repeat customers will be telling their friends.  And then someone will take a quilt you have done to their guild meeting - and then...you can't keep up!  :-)   It's all good!

    My business, The Quilted Lemon, only opened up in September. It's slowly getting there. Very slowly. But there are a few repeat clients so that makes me happy. One of the guilds that I belong to has asked me to do a short presentation on longarm quilting so hopefully there will be some quilts from that. And then today I just met a client for the drop-off of a custom baby quilt. Since that was custom work of piecing as well as binding after the quilting, it was a lot more than what I've been getting for just the quilting. The bay area is fairly affluent so I'm hoping that the quilt shop will send more people my way for custom baby quilts. The owner was happy that I had the clients choose their fabrics from the shop and buy them there. A win-win as far as I'm concerned. Now maybe he'll have more people call me.
     
    At any rate, I'm just happy that my Freddie and IQ have been so easy to work with. I'm still doing just E2Es but I'm learning new tricks everyday. I may play around with mixing different panto designs for a semi-custom look that would work better for the modern quilts. 
     
    The forum has been my go-to for any sort of pitfall or question that concerns me. The custom baby quilt had a minkee backing and the forum had great advice on how to handle it very successfully. So a big thank you to all of you for being available to dole out advice when needed. It's like having my very own team of cheerleaders.

    Sheagatzi reacted to dlnewell in Bobbin & Top Thread - favorite combinations? New George owner   
    I've used maxi-lock too and it works.  I use a lot of the metro/sigma poly embroidery thread because it has a sheen to it that my customers like, and it's cheap! Don't feel bad about asking questions.  That's how we learn!  This forum has been a great source of info and inspiration for me as a quilter!
