Longarm Quilting Designs – ReannaLily Quilts
If you haven’t seen the news: in November/December of 2015, I started longarm quilting for clients. I launched a site as part of ReannaLily Designs, called ReannaLily Quilts. This is an image round-up for some of my favorite and most recent longarm quilting designs.
Let me show you some of the quilting motif textures I’ve been working on for a few of my own quilts and a few customers:
Note: Since some of these images are customer’s quilts, I tried not to show the whole quilt, but rather feature the quilting design.
This Tula Pink quilt back is part of a graffiti quilt free motion extravaganza! It was a blast to quilt.
The large large large swirl quilting below is from my QuiltCon West Reject quilt. I cannot wait to show you the whole quilt in a later blog post.
The quilt below has velvet-y minkie-ish knit on the back. It quilted beautifully. On the front of the quilt, the client appliqued shapes and for quilting we decided to add a few “ghost shapes” in the negative space. I love ghost shapes.
I had an afternoon of practice and longarm quilting design brainstorming. With so much inspiration and tutorials all over the internet, I wanted to create a quilt that would work as a design sampler for my own reference. This shape below was one of my favorites.
This image below is from my first official ReannaLily Quilts customer quilt. It was a larger quilt and is covered with free-motion swirls.
The following three images are from the graffiti quilting quilt. This quilt was on my frame for a few days and I was sad to see it go. The “grey” fabric is Anna Maria Horner’s Luminous and with a gold thread in the weave, it twinkled as it was quilted. Gorgeous!
On a 1600 or Jelly Roll Quilt, I challenged myself to add rows of feathers over the entire quilt. The free-form quilted feathers really have a lot more motion than I anticipated, once finished.
My new favorite border design – SWIRLS. These are pointed swirls that lock into each other.
This is a quick grid meander longarm quilting design on a Plus Quilt. You create it just like a regular meander design, but instead of curving around, you turn corners. Watch the video:
If you need a quilt top finished and longarm quilted, leave a comment or send me a message. I’d be happy to chat about quilting. …well, that is always a true sentence… I LOVE to talk about quilting! =) In the mean time, check out ReannaLily Quilts online.
