12 Days of Christmas – Day 7

One of the most exciting parts of making a quilt is when it’s finally ready to be quilted. Picking out the final details is so exciting – it’s one of my favorite things! The design you choose along with thread and backing colors, type of batting, etc. are the final touches on what makes your quilt unique to you!

  1. I’m working on a gingham look quilt right now, for a grandniece. I would want yo gave professional Longarming done on a wool appliqué quilt, I’m leering of doing that myself.

  2. I am working on my Santa Hats wool appliqué from retreat but I have two quilts ready to get quilted, my American Gatherings quilt is done and my flannel checked quilt also from retreat is done. I am putting my name on the list asap! Thank you so much!

  3. I love the machine quilting that Luke shows! Amazing, he has an amazing eye for the perfect quilting pattern to make the quilting really pop.
    Merry Christmas

  4. The work they do on the quilting is absolutely stunning. I am working on a quilt for my grandson. I hope to start piecing quilts faster. I want to send some in for longarm services at your shop. I love the clam shell pattern.

  5. Your machine quilted examples are beautiful!!! To save money I have learned to stipple on my home machine…it’s not as pretty for sure.

  6. Been working on Christmas placemats and just quilting them on my domestic. I have about 9 quilts to long arm and I am a retired long armer! I thought when I closed my business due to family illness I would have time to quilt my quilts,😂. Love machine quilting, just find the long arm quilter that has your taste!

  7. Have 2 quiltsthat will be ready in the future for longarm, one iis gypsy wife and the other is one block wonder

  8. I am working on bindings. I have three more quilts to go before I get there. Your samples of quilting are amazing.

  9. I’m working on the Fall Crazy Quilt SAL. I love the machine quilting at Primitive Gatherings. Luke gave me the tour and its on my list.

  10. Working on a Christmas quilt but have quite a few sitting waiting to be quilted. I hand quilt most of my quilts but I am running out of time to get them quilted. I don’t think I’ll live long enough hahaha. I may need to check out your services and see if I can afford them, especially since I live in Virginia

  11. I always take my quilt tops in to be machine quilted. Longarm services are the best! I am currently working on a couple scrappy quilts and one winter themed quilt with pine trees and log cabin blocks. I ca’t wait to finish them and have them quilted.

  12. I’m finishing up a quilt that I pieced and quilted myself. I used to pay to have the top quilting done, but I do it on my mid arm, but would I love to have one done for me, you better believe that’s a huge yes. What a treat that would be!

  13. Quilting is my hangup. Get tops finished and then I can’t quilt them myself so they pile up while I figure out what to do with them. Longarm services would be great.

  14. Yes, I need you to quilt my quilt. I’m almost done. I’d like to get on your list but I need to finish it. I think in a few weeks it will be ready and don’t want to hang anyone up waiting for it. I also need to know if I wait to do the embellishments after quilting.

  15. Since it’s so close to Christmas, I’m working on some cute little holiday pot holders. But after Christmas, I’m going to start working on a memory quilt made out of my dad’s flannel shirts. Will definitely need it quilted!

  16. What a difference a good quilting job makes for a quilt – your team does wonderful work – thanks for sharing their talent with us!

  17. Perfect finish to a quilt is a good longarm quilter. Have a few that needs those finishing touches

  18. I don’t mind machine quilting on small wall hangings, but I’m not very good on bigger things. On one lap/twin quilt I used my embroidery machine & that turned out pretty well. I do have 2 quilts that need longarm services.

  19. Dug out a 30 year old UFO to finish. And it will be finished this time!! Local young mother does my long arm quilting. Long rm quilting can really set off your work. The only time I do not use it is if I have hand pieced the quilt. Then I feel it must be hand quilted. My sister-in-law does that for me.

  20. Just starting a Fig Tree Quilt pattern called Midsummer Stars and doing it in a Bonnie Sullivan Snow Days flannels.
    I don’t quilt any of my quilts. Don’t have the knack for it. I have a good friend that is an artist that loves to do whatever she wants on my quilts. Always turns out fantastic.

  21. This came at a perfect time! I just finished my words to live by this fall so I’ll get my name on the list to have it quilted!! Thank you for offering longarm quilting! It’s getting hard to find somebody to trust with our works of art!

  22. I have a long arm and feel pretty confident with edge to edge. But……if I make an heirloom quilt, it is going out to a custom quilter! What a great addition to PG! Jmh

  23. I’m trying to finish 3 wool projects for Christmas. Hope to make a very small ( my first) quilt in the coming year.

  24. I’m working on quilting other people’s quilts! I would love to do a few of my own – maybe before my guild’s show in the spring. In the meantime, I have been inspired by Luke’s edge to edge quilting on the wool applique quilts. I never would have dared before! For my own wool on flannel I want to do custom quilting. I love the feathers and enhancing each block. Thanks for ALL you do for us Lisa! Merry Christmas to you and to your very talented family and staff.

  25. I’m working on a quilt for my son and it will need quilting. I don’t machine quilt so I’m thankful for those that are LAQers!!

  26. I am happy to have a resource for long arm quilting on those I don’t choose to finish myself. Your finished quilts are always so beautifully done. I have had to set quilting aside for Christmas family time. I look forward to getting back to my UFO’s when the holidays are over.

  27. I’m just working on small projects right now, but when I get my confidence up, I hope to tackle a large quilt and will definitely want to take advantage of the long-arm service!

  28. I am finishing up a double jelly roll quilt and working on a quilt for a Charity auction in June. I have three longarmers that I use, but I also have two women that do hand quilting. Some quilt patterns are made for hand quilting whereas others are good for an edge to edge pattern.

  29. Your machine quilting department of PG is doing a wonderful job of giving quilts a great finished look! I love when the guys post quilts that they have just finished quilting!!

  30. Right now I am working on fabric baskets to gift to people for Christmas!
    I sew smaller things and avoid quilting 😬🙄

  31. I am currently stitching block 12 of Somewhere in Time. I am a bit afraid of the borders! I definitely need to get on your nice list! A good machine quilter… there is no better friend to have.

  32. I’m working on the wool applique block of Merry and Bright Christmas, all the piecing is done. When it’s finished, it will be coming your way. I have had quite a few quilts quilted by PG and you never disappoint – beautiful every time!

  33. I’m working on SBoW pieced scrappy quilt. Only need to see Blocks together then I’m done! It’s turning out beautifully. And I’m working on SBOW wildflower quilt. That one will take me longer to complete.

  34. I have just set up my Juki to quilt a J. Niemeyer quilt. It will be quilted sparingly, as it is not my strong suit. I would love to be able to use long arm services more often!

  35. Working on PG Summer Blooms, just finished stitching last stem on border! Love it! Now ready for quilting. Love all the beautiful quilting that is coming from Luke and the PG longarms. Amazing quilting!!!

  36. Finishing up some wool Christmas ornaments for my grandsons. Have many tops that need to be quilted.

  37. I am guilting a red and white quilt on my Juki. Have my “So This Is Christmas “ top ready to be quilted next. I enjoy quilting my tops, but use longarmers for queen and king size quilts.

  38. Currently I am working on Christmas placemats to give as gifts! I am also working on a quilt-a-long featuring some beautiful Fig Tree fabric. I am also a cross stitching maniac!!

  39. Right now I’m working on wrapping gifts, you asked. I have plenty of UFO’s & a flimsy or 2. I even have the backing for them. But as soon as Christmas is over I need to start a new project for a 1st birthday in January. Merry Christmas

  40. This past February, was so thrilled to finish my Words to Live By and bring it to you to be quilted!! Your guys did a beautiful job on it and I’ve been enjoying it every day since. I’m currently trying to finish Somewhere in Time, just have the outer borders to stitch. I hope to use your quilting services again some day.

  41. Hi. I’m working on wool applique. I love the quilting your crew does. It’s absolutely beautiful. I will eventually need your service, but not now.

  42. I’m working on finishing binding for all my Christmas gifts. Can’t wait to get back to my wool box projects.

  43. Just finished my quilt along with Edyta, but have been working on wool projects for Christmas gifts. I real appreciate long arm services!

  44. one day I hope to have one of my quits quilted by PG. It is amazing what it does to enhance Lisa’s designs!

  45. Right now I have to pick out what to work on next as I just finished up making pillow cases for the grandkids for Christmas. Yes, I will always need long arm quilting services and my thoughts about it: “gee, I wish I could do that “!

  46. I finished a Christmas stocking with wool for my grandson and now doing embroidery on quilt labels for friendship quilts. Thank you Lisa for all the video tutorials and and demos you create for your customers too far away to be with you in person !!!
    P.S. I ALWAYS have quilts that need long arm quilting ! I’m going to check in with Luke.

  47. Your guys do beautiful work on the quilts they longarm. I do send mine out. Right now working on a wedding present quilt

  48. What beautiful quilting ! I’d love to learn how to do longarm myself by as of right now, I longarm by check 😀 Currently I’m doing some piecing by hand. I want this quilt to be totally handmade.

  49. Mostly working on wool projects from the bi-monthly PG subscription boxes. I am a proponent of machine quilting. Longarm servives someday-most likely

  50. I love the look of professional machine quilting. I have a Tiara that I purchased used, which is what I do my quilting on. I also bought some books on designs and tips. Needles to say, its not perfect but the 3 layers are together:) I have had quilts done by machine that are either too large or need quilting thats a little more precise.

  51. I have approximately 11 quilts waiting for me to be longarmed. It’s on my to do list for next year.

  52. I am working on larger size 1930’s reproduction fabric quilt and a BOM sampler garden quilt and YES!!! I do need long arm quilting services. Machine quilting is cool but it is a beast to manipulate large amounts of fabric under my sewing machine. 🧵😜

  53. I am working on Twilight Garden and the ongoing Wool Box project. I will need quilting services when these are completed.
