Longarm Quilting Edge-to-Edge Designs

The blog has been quiet for a month as I’ve longarm machine quilted on a collection on customer quilts. I’m happy to share a quick slide show with you this morning.

Everything featured here is considered an Edge-To-Edge design.

What does that mean? Simply, for me to finish quilting your quilt I can travel from one edge to the other using one design motif without having to stop and change designs with shapes or use a ruler to outline patchwork designs. Having said that, this is how I consider Edge-To-Edge design at my longarm company, ReannaLily Quilts. Your longarm quilter may have a different definition.

The first photo has rows and rows of wild “spineless” feathers stitched in Wisteria Glide Thread on a rail fence quilt pattern design stitch in batik fabrics, similar to these fabrics at Craftsy.

The back is where you can really see the almost Edge-to-Edge design. For this quilt, I did a combination of quick Edge-to-Edge styles, but I did switch up the motif within each shape. I didn’t use rulers on the project, though.

The pattern she used is called Tall Trim the Tree, I believe.

Meandering Hearts

The quilted gift is for her daughter and has hearts stitched into the meandering design to showcase the hearts in the fabric prints.

Tessellating Fish

My customer suggested a traditional clamshell design for his quilt. As he envisioned, the clams look like fish scales on his Tessellating Fish quilt.  Cool effect, right?

City Skyline

A panel with a border makes a very fast quilt design. My customer started with a panel similar to this one: City-scape by Hoffman, and framed it nicely. The quilted design did feature ruler work, but I consider it more of an edge-to-edge in this case since I didn’t outline any patches. To quilt this design, I stitched random straight (vertical-to-the-city) lines and followed the angles of the buildings.

Lava Thread!

Next is a quilt created by a grandmother and grand-daughter. Fun, right? The only thing that would make this large-scale pinwheel quilt more fun is a triangle-meander in bright ORANGE Lava thread!

Patchwork Stocking

And to take a quick break from quilting, I made this stocking for a new cousin of mine. It is full lined, features a pile of fabric scraps, and is accented with Gold Metallic Thread in a few decorative stitch variations. Her name was written in Frixion pen, then loosely outlined with free-motion quilting on my home machine.
