Melissa does beautiful custom work as well, such as on my Safari Moon quilt. I love the pebbles in the borders and the free-hand swirls in the big blocks. You can see more of her free-hand quilting for Elizabeth and Maureen on Melissa’s blog.
I have mentioned Melissa from Sew Shabby Quilting many times on my blog. Melissa has quilted numerous quilts for me. I am not ashamed to say that the actual ‘quilting’ part of making a quilt is my least favorite part of the process. It’s the part I am least confident in and as a result, I just don’t enjoy it. Plus I find I get more of my projects actually completed if I turn them over to someone else for quilting.
So I am SO grateful when I find a professional long-arm quilter who I can trust with my quilts. Melissa has been that for me – she’s been a lifesaver for me many times over.
Melissa has multiple options when it comes to quilting – she has the capacity to do the computer-programmed all-over quilting, which I’ve done on many of my quilts (like the giant Indie star quilt above) because it’s such a reasonable price and I like the all-over texture it gives. You can see the variety of patterns she has here. (Keep in mind the all-over computer programmed patterns can be sized to different scales, so if you choose one, help your quilter and be sure to specify how open or dense you’d like the design scale on your quilt.)
Melissa also has an etsy shop with popular fabrics marked 10%-50% off.
Today Melissa is generously offering a $50 gift certificate towards quilting to one of my readers! To enter leave a comment on this post sharing what you’d use it towards.
