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 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

 I can’t say enough about Brenda!
She was so responsive and informative to my inquiry. I sent her my quilt top, binding and thread. and she completely transformed my quilt top into a piece of art. I’m so happy with what she did I’m already working on another quilt top to send her. If your looking for someone to long arm your quilt don’t go anywhere else. This is the right person for your precious item. Turn around time was less than a week and I sent item across country. Can’t wait to use this service again! Thanks Brenda!  – March 2018
