Custom Longarm Machine Quilting

Tuesday, November 18, 2008


This cute quilt is for another of the ladies up at Gracie Lou's. It had such cute fabric. It was all racing themed, with several flame fabrics in the mix.
It has black Minkee on the back. I used a black thread,and quilted flames across the quilt. It turned out so cute!

I had tried to find a flame pantograph, but nobody had one like I wanted, so I ended up freehanding the flames with the quilting machine. I had originally drawn several designs out on paper, but ended up just using them as a guide. I also used the flame fabrics as a reference for how I wanted the flames to turn out. For the most part, the flames are all a continuous pattern across the quilt, with several small flames quilted in empty spaces.
