What an honour to be asked to quilt Geraldine's latest quilt from the book Blooms and Baskets by Emily G Senuta. Geraldines appliqué is far superior to anything I will ever be able to accomplish!
I wish I had a spot big enough to display the entire quilt. The detail is fantastic.
Each year I tally up how many quilts I have quilted on my Longarm. Since I bought my machine in 2000 this was quilt 1751. Geraldine ask me once why her machine quilting didn't look like mine. I told her that I had lots of practice, just like she had lots of practice appliquéing. That is why my appliqué doesn't look like hers. Practice!
