Then, through wonderful blogland I discovered Marcia and freehand long arm quilting. From now on my customers have a choice...they can use a local long arm quilter, who most likely uses a computer or pantograph, or they can pay to have their quilts freehand long arm quilted by Marcia. Now some of you think I am singing her praises because she is my friend. Well, she is my friend, but her quilting is what grabbed my attention and caused us to become friends. Another thing--don't get me wrong--there is nothing wrong with computer/pantograph quilting. I just prefer the 'extra' that comes along with Marcia's freehand work.
I am so happy that my dresden customer chose to allow Marcia to quilt the identical quilts. Below are some photos. If you pop over to Marcia's blog, you will see some more up close photos of detail work while they are being quilted.
