100th Quilt!

I've had my longarm quilting machine for about nine months now, and I've been having SUCH a ball with it. The other night, I needed a few minutes to wind down before I could settle down to sleep. So, just for kicks, I went back through this blog and counted all the quilts I had chronicled (plus two that have not been published because they are gifts yet to be given). 

And do you know how many quilts I counted? ONE HUNDRED AND FOUR! As much as I love her, that sure wouldn't have been possible on my trusty little Janome. 

I've had such a fun adventure so far, and I continue to learn new things every day. I feel like a cheesy success story. Do you remember those motivational speakers they used to bring in to talk to your entire high school, and they would tell you to find something you love and figure out a way to get paid for it? By golly, I did it!

I feel thankful for the talented, kind-hearted, good-natured ladies that are my clients and friends. Very pleased with the little niche I've carved out for myself. Proud of the body of work I have accumulated thus far.

And THIS is the 100th quilt that I quilted on my longarm. It is a baby quilt, and I sewed my love into every stitch.

I really love the effect a striped fabric can have in the binding. Especially when cut (or printed) on the bias (not seen here).
