For years, you may have noticed that Melissa of Sew Shabby Quilting is my go-to longarm quilter. She has been quilting the majority of my quilts for over 5 years now.
Here’s a close up of some of her work. She has a great price and turnaround on edge to edge quilting. This pattern is on of my favorites – it’s called Yodel.
I’m also a big fan of the Baptis Fan (get it! 😉 ) pattern for lots of texture and a traditional feel.
Melissa also does amazing custom quilting if you are looking for something special and unique. You can find out all of the details, plus see the edge-to-edge quilting patterns Melissa offers on her website.
And now, Melissa has opened a brand new fabric shop with a variety of fun new fabric kits, bundles and yardage!
Some recent additions include this Fat Quarter bundle of Blush by Jen Allyson with pretty rose gold accents.
A couple of years ago, Melissa created this gorgeous quilt pattern called Astral. You can find the PDF pattern here.
This summer, Melissa has created a new version of Astral and kitted this pattern with a mixture of Allison Glass’s 2018 Sunprints and Insignia fabrics.
The kit is everything for a finished quilt (88″ x 88″), except the binding and backing, including 4.25 yds background in Alison Glass Diatom in Seagull, 16 colored Fat Quarters, 4 White FQs, and 8 Extra prints for optional fussy cutting in the center blocks – these are a mixture of Alison glass and Cotton and Steel.
It is a $135 value – currently on sale for $99! UPDATE: Kits are Sold Out!

I’m now on Melissa’s email list. I’ve been following your blog for several years and enjoy the highlights you give on the quilting for your quilts. A good relationship with a quilter is certainly what makes the piecing of a quilt worthwhile. Thanks for the chance in the giveaway. email@example.com
