Photo Roll of Longarm Quilting by Julie Stocker

Quilts, Quilts, Quilts and More Quilts!

One evening as I sat contently reading a book, yes, about quilting, my husband turned to me and asked, "Don't you ever get tired of quilting?" I didn't think that deserved a reply other than the look I gave, but I did think about it for a few days. I never tire of the world of quilts. I love it, and I love what I do. I like old, torn, well-used quilts as well as crisp new ones. I love simple designs as well as complex, and all the technical jibber-jabber as much as talking about my favorite new fabric lines. How does one get sucked in this deeply? Again, a rhetorical question which should not be considered too deeply. I just accept that quilts chose me, and not the other way around. 

Enjoy the montage. Owners/makers and some information may be listed as I remember, but this is all for your eyes more than your brains. This work started sometime in late June, and doesn't include everything I've done. I've been busy, but very happy as my husband will attest to.

Prairie points in the middle of a quilt! A serious challenge to get it to lay flat, but it did.

A handmade card that came from Sweden from my host mother Hagar Svedegard. As beautiful as a quilt!

Ever get tired of quilting? What? My husband frequently asks me why we need another quilt in the house. Such silly questions these men come up with.
All your quilting is beautiful. The prairie points would be a challenge.

My hubby doesn't get my passion with quilting and has asked me the same thing! My answer NO I don't get tired of it. It's in my blood to stay;0 You sure have been a busy gal, beautiful quilts that are shining brightly because of your quilting addition.
