Sometimes you make a quilt and it just tells you how it wants to be quilted.  When I made this quilt it went right from the sewing machine to the frame.  No ruminating needed.  


Not so much with the quilt I am working on now.  A few weeks ago I purchased the most wonderful bundle of Alison Glass Handcrafted 2.  

I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.  One of my goals for 2015 was to make a quilt with curves.  Up until now I have been shying away, but I had an idea for a block I wanted to try.  

It is an adaptation of a Shoo Fly block using quarter circles in place of the half square triangles.  After some experimenting and improvisation with the layout I ended up with this quilt top.


I am pretty happy with how it turned out and I know quilting will really bring this thing to life.  Except I am unsure how I want to quilt it.  I have changed my mind at least a dozen times.  After 2 weeks of indecision I decided today:  "That's it!"  It is going on the frame tomorrow and I will figure it out as I go.   Better done than sitting in a drawer.  Stayed tuned for my progress.  

Thanks for reading. 


PS.  I am going to attempt to link up to Let's Bee Social over at Sew Fresh Quilts.  I have been follow her blog for the last year and I love the quilting community vibe.  


Hello and Welcome to Quilt Icing.  This is the "official" website for my Longarm Quilting services.  Wow...official sounds so official.  

This is also the place where I will blog about my creative process, projects, and maybe a few personal things. I also plan to share my struggles and success as I start my longarm quilting business.  

I previously (and sporadically) blogged over at Quilticav, but as my creative and quilting pursuits moved me further into longarm and free motion quilting I decided a website transition was needed.  So here I am at Quilt Icing.

I hope you will join me on this journey and enjoy the ride!
