Longarm Quilting

A Gammill Statler Optimum Longarm quilting machine will quilt your quilt at 3 Red Hens 
I have been quilting since 2006, making both bedding for designers and customers and quilts for quilting customers. When I attended curtain and bedding making school in 2006, I was taught that we should always try new things and say yes when a challenge is presented to us. So I have done some unusual things with my quilting machine.

A very famous work room employed me to make a 90" wide circular table cloth from pink felted wool with 10 oz. batting (VERY thick). It was overlayed with sheer gold fabric which was quilted to the top of it. To finish it, the bottom edge was scalloped and bound with the sheer gold fabric. I have quilted fabric for upholstered furniture, for upholstered walls and horse saddles. Raw carded wool for batting was used for a customer who wanted all natural bedding that was not processed with chemicals. 40, small, individual batts were laid out on the quilt. The wool was multicolored as it was just off the sheep and raw with field particles still present. It was really cute because all 40 batts came rolled up individually in the sheep farm's local, town newspaper.  Meeting your quilting needs is important to me, do challenge me. I will ask questions to make sure I am doing what you want, if you have ideas, please share them.
