Simple Sampler Quilt-Along :: Finished!


Posted on June 10th, by Amy in finished quilt, quilt-along. 10 comments

If you follow me on instagram, you saw a few peeks at this quilt over the weekend.  I am so happy with the finished product! This being my first foray into quilting with rulers on the long-arm, I learned a ton, and look forward to my next one – in fact if you have a suggestion of rulers to use/purchase, I would love a little input.

Since you can’t see much of the quilting, I took close-up of a couple of my favorite blocks –

I spiraled in to the center in a square, then added graduated loops in the triangles.  All the sashing has figure 8’s, that grew more consistent, the more I quilted.

This one has a pebbled center, with double loops in the print, and graduated lines in the corners.  I had a lot of fun thinking up and trying new things, I’ve referenced my board on pinterest just for quilting a few times too! Not a single block is quilted the same, and knowing that they are not all perfect, I still love the end result = a beautiful finish!

I hope your week is off to a great start!  I’ll be trying to keep my kids busy, and the fridge full – I forget how much they eat all day long when they are home!

More soon – Amy

    How fun! Your quilt is lovely.

    Angela Walters has a saying that I often repeat to myself whilst long-arm quilting, “Close enough, is good enough”.

    When I got my Innova long-arm machine, I thought I needed lots of rulers and gadgets. I’ve only had my machine since January. The ruler I use the most is a small 4″ x 6″ one from Teryl Loy. It’s small enough to hold in my left hand while I move the machine with my right. I did buy 3 others, but they have been languishing around.

    Your quilt looks wonderful! Longarm quilting is so much fun. Teryl Loy of Lets Quilt has some wonderful rulers and templates I think you would enjoy. The following is a link to their video page which has good demos regarding the rulers and templates. http://www.terylloy.com/video.htm
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

    Wow! Really nicely done. The quilting looks great. I too am trying to figure out what rulers to get. I don’t want to end up spending money on ones that really won’t get used much, Once you figure out which are the “must haves” I’d love to hear about them.
