Magic Quilting

by Nicole

Sending your quilt to a long arm quilter is like having a bit of magic happen.

You send away a quilt top, with batting and backing, and it returns a quilt!

I’m sure there is quite a bit of work that happens behind the scenes, but to me, it feels like magic.

Here is a peek at the quilting my magician friend, the long arm quilter did with the commissioned quilt.


Big happy swirls are all over the quilt. Lovely, aren’t they?

I’ll be back with more pics soon!

Isn't it amazing? Someday I'll have to send one of mine off for a bit of magic too! 🙂

Fun!! I just have had my first quilt long-armed, don't even have it back yet and haven't seen pictures either but I got an email today that it's DONE and I am so excited!!

Oh those swirls are lovely! I'm getting my Retro Flowers quilt top long-armed, really looking forward to seeing it done.

Cool :o) I've never had anything long armed, but I'm thinking my Brit Bee quilt might need to go to someone as it's possibly a bit big for me to tackle

I love sending my quilts off to the long armer too – as you say, they come back magically transformed! And I love hand stitching down the binding – it is my therapy. This looks like it is going to be amazing – now waiting for the big reveal!

It IS a lovely thing – and what nice magic on your quilt!

It is a magical thing that happens when you send your quilt out to be quilted and a magical sigh of relief as well. Love the swirls on your quilt. Thank you for sharing.

Have a super great sewing and stitching day.

I send some of mine off too. It's so much fun to have it come back transformed! Are you using someone in NC?

Now if I could just master my long arm quilting skills…I could make some magic for others?!?!? Hehe!!!

I've never had anything long-armed- but this queen sized quilt I'm working on may just be my first magically-quilted item!
