my talented long arm machine quilters...
my most recent "quilt by check..."
Vintage Modern by Camille Roskelly.
I love how the wave quilting looks on this modern version of a classic star block.
I also love the yellows!
96" x 96"
(Yes, you read correctly. That is her other job.)
She manages the only quilt shop in the metro Chicago area,
Second City Quilt Company.
During our conversation she asked if I quilted by hand,
or if I "quilted by check"...
I never heard that phrase before but I instantly knew what she meant!
We both agreed that we mostly "quilt by check,"
meaning that we mostly send our pieced quilts to a professional long arm quilter to finish.
I love that phrase!
This shop and this woman are worthy of a second visit...or more!
One final note...
While I was taking pictures at the park this morning,
I thought I saw a spot on the quilt...
But it was not a spot...
It was a very nice bug.
