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

Thank you Brenda from Houston, Texas!! Brenda created the most beautiful baby quilt for our 1st grandbaby (daughter), expected to be born anytime between December 25th – January 1st of 2020. Brenda was able to take my heart felt sentiments, about using certain baby pastels, and about using certain “rose” patterns, and designed what is truly, the a beautiful and memorable keepsake for our granddaughter, “Ellie Rose” 🌹 Brenda, you have an amazing gift!! I’m so glad I found you!! Sincerely 💜 Rose Banker ( Cypress, Texas)

I just couldn’t be happier!! I contacted Brenda to quilt and attach the backing of a t-shirt quilt that I made for my daughter’s high school graduation. When I first sent an email contacting her, she called me within 10 minutes! And from that point on, her communication has been fantastic.
I got my quilt back yesterday and it’s PERFECT! I shipped it off and had it back in 9 days and that includes shipping time from Texas-Oregon-Texas.
Thank you so much! A++++++   – April 2018
