About Pamela

I am pleased to offer long arm quilting service to the public on our state of the art computerized Statler Stitcher sewing machine. This new machine has over 3000 programmed patterns to choose from, including edge to edge or all over patterns, to custom patterns for blocks, borders, corner stones, and sashings. The machine is very accurate in both measuring, and pattern machining, so you can expect to see consist patterns, accurately place on your quilt. The patterns available range from simple geometric patterns to very complex patterns such as leafs, feathers, and flowers. We also can offer patterns for baby, children's, art, and whole cloth quilts. We also can do custom programming for those who want a unique pattern quilted. Custom pattern designs and programs are available at an extra cost. The machine table and rollers can accommodate a quilt up to 12 feet long, and can stitch quilts this full distance, in one set up, if required. We offer a large selection of colors in thread, and we also offer a range of backing, and batting material in our shop.

Quilt Circles Abstract Art Black White Wall Hanging

This is one of the latest modern abstract quilted wall hangings that I made recently.  It measures 38″ x 48″; circles are machined appliqued with a blanket stitch in black thread. Quilted in an overall circular pattern with black thread to create a wonderful textured appearance. Bound with black fabric; backing is a black and silver gray print. Comes with a hanging sleeve on the back for easy display.

T-Shirt Quilts Make Nice Gifts!

Just a few weeks ago, a customer called us and asked us if we could make a special T-Shirt Quilt for her as a gift for her loved one before Christmas. Although I was pretty well booked, my husband John said he would have time to help me complete the quilt, and have it done before Christmas. T-Shirt quilts make wonderful gifts, as was this one, now completed. Much like a memory quilt (with pictures on the quilt top) T-shirt quilts bring back those warm memories of that loved one and times spent together, while adding warmth while the the quilt is in use. This is just one of many possible quilt top patterns, and in this case, just what our customer wanted. John and I both enjoy sharing the joys of Christmas with our very special customers!

Merry Christmas!

John and I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Although life is full of challenges of all sorts, it brings peace to our hearts to know that we have Jesus Christ in our home and in our lives. We pray that this Christmas season will bring you closer to our savior, that you may know Him better and better.

May God bless you and keep you safe.

Custom Quilt & Throw Pillows & Bed Skirt

Recently I completed a custom quilted bedroom package including a custom quilt, throw pillows, and bed skirt that you see in my customer’s picture here. The package also included custom pillow shams not shown in this picture. If you have interest in a bedroom custom made quilting package, I also piece and custom quilt curtains or drapes to match your interior design. In this package, I pieced all the various options mentioned and custom quilted them, including all finish edge binding, complete and ready to use. I have also discussed a custom wall hanging to match this bedroom set or for decoration in another room with my customer Judy. A special thanks to Judy for supplying this photograph of her completed quilt set!

Please feel free to contact my about your custom quilting interests.

March Fabric Painting Class

Several of you have expressed and interested in fabric painting recently. So, I would like to invite you to participate in my upcoming fabric painting class, on Saturday March 10, 2012, at 9:30 am, here at my home/shop in Caldwell.

In this class we will learn about fabric, and paints that can be used on whole-cloth quilts, clothing, quilt blocks and other custom items you would like to design and make in the future. I plan to explore the best fabrics, paints and painting techniques to use so that the fabric can be washed after the painting process is completed without loss of paint or color. I will also discuss what I have learned about fabric washing techniques or procedures.

Please contact me if you have questions about this upcoming class. I hold a limited size class and have room for 2 more this weekend. If you plan to attend, please let me know as soon as you can.

The cost of the class will be $25 and will include a quilted sample for you to paint and keep, similar to the one you see in this post. Plus I will supply you with paint applicator brushes and paint to use to paint your sample. I have room for 6-8 students per class.

I look forward to hearing from you! I hope you can come!
