About Me:

My Story

I longarm because I love to do it. I learned early that I could not build enough quilt tops to keep myself longarming every day so I started by volunteering longarm services for Project Linus and Quilts of Valor Foundation. I am so grateful for the quiltmakers who let me experiment and learn on their projects. I turned out some pretty unfortunate pieces in the early days but the ladies were so kind and supportive and let me keep trying until I developed a style. Thank you Project Linus, Rogue Valley Oregon,

Custom Orders

Every job is a custom job. Your project is unique to you and the longarm quilting service I provide to complete it will complement and finish your work to the best of my ability. I welcome suggestions but most of my clients turn me loose to have my way with custom quilting their quilt tops- If you are looking for simple edge to edge quilting, you can find that cheaper at one of the large quilt finishing studios. I use a manual process and it takes many hours of hands on work to finish a quilt. When you get your quilt back from me it will be like like opening a present- invariably prettier, and nicer than you expect.

Machines and Materials

I use a King Quilter-18 longarm quilting machine. It is a reliable workhorse of a machine- No fancy options but perfect for my needs. I don’t use a robot or a computer so you will always get a unique design. Every project is custom quilting for your special project.. I furnish a variety of battings: Cotton, Bamboo and a couple of blends. 60/40 is my current favorite because it is a little loftier than 100% cotton and it is a little springier than other battings. It shows texture beautifully

Brenda is a consummate professional. She is also kind and caring. My quilts were so beautifully done, my friends thought she hand quilted them.

Brenda did an awesome job quilting a baby quilt I recently made. She was very willing to answer questions and had great suggestions every step of the way. The turn around time was AWESOME. Less than a week including shipping Round trip between Chicago and Oregon. Super impressed and highly recommended!  – June 2018
