My 12-foot Gammill Statler Stitcher arrived in December 2015, was delivered and set up by Andrew of Andrew's Gammill Northwest in Wenatchee, Washington. This machine is HUGE!
I started out the year quilting this QuiltCon charity quilt that was pieced by the members of the Corvallis Modern Quilt Guild.
Then I quilted my Rebel quilt (see previous post for more pics).
In March, my dude's cousin, Lori, came down from Washington with a quilt that she had designed and pieced for the annual fundraiser for Choir of the Sound in Seattle. Beautiful quilt, and the design that she chose was perfect!
Sometime in April, Latifah Saafir posted a request for longarmers on Instagram, to quilt for Quilt Market. This is a big deal! Being new at this, I wasn't sure I should even respond to the request, but I took my chances. And so did Latifah. She replied to my email with the sweetest response. She said "I would love to support you by offering you this opportunity." WHAT? I was excited....and nervous...and grateful. My friend, Kristen, of Circa15 Fabric Studio in Kirkland, Washington, was at Quilt Market and took this pic. I LOVE this fabric! This Good and Plenty quilt pattern is free! Check out Latifah's lookbook for more fun projects!
