My Seminole quilt top is complete!
I brought to Sandi Verbridge of Sandi’s Quilted Touch on Saturday so she can perform her quilting magic on her long arm machine. She had quilted a few of my quilts when she operated out of the Watertown NY location and I was really pleased with the quilting she did.
Now that she lives and works in Auburn NY, she is only a 30-minute drive from my home. I was looking forward to meeting her in person and see her long arm in operation. Her family room, with a beautiful working fireplace, has been transformed into a workroom for the long arm. What a beautiful setting for any kind of quilting!
On the long arm she just happened to have a quilt on the frame made by friend and fellow quilter, Barb. Barb had worked on this quilt at a recent get together. She was making it for her grandson. The theme of the quilt is the Boy Scouts and Sandi is quilting it with stars.
Sandi asked me what quilting I wanted done on my quilt – and I wasn’t sure. She told me that the fabrics suggested the outdoors to her. Boy did she hit the nail on the head. I wanted the quilt to evoke thoughts of the Adirondacks. I also wanted to add a touch of the Seminole patchwork that I had seen on our trip to Florida this past winter The border made her think of Indian corn. I was so glad that the feeling of my quilt can be readily seen. I can’t wait to see how it is finished. It’s really true that “quilting makes the quilt”. Now I need to start working on the label carries out the outdoor theme.
