As I was finishing up quilting on a customer quilt one day in early May, Hollie came over with her cousin and brought along the three quilts she planned on quilting the next day. (It takes time to choose thread and panto grap...

Lise is on a mission to quilt up tops that she's been working on for a few years. She has booked time on Lolah to quilt them all! How cool is that? This one is extra special! When she first started quilting on Lolah,...

Marie belongs to several quilting circles and one of them is the Fabric Cupboard's BOM Pinwheel group. Their 2013 pattern was a Churn Dash in solids. If you knew Marie, you'd know this was outside her comfort zone! She is all...

It should come as no surprise to many people that Marie's quilts are large! She loves to have them cover the bed and hang down the sides to cover the sheets. Mattresses today are quite thick... could the quilting industry be ...

One of the tops I was commissioned to quilt is this one called Mint Julep. The blocks are large and have a modern look so I decided to quilt it MODERN with straight line ruler work! I drew inspiration from the book "Quilting ...

The last of the 4 quilts commissioned for our daughter-in-law's mother was the most fun for me. Other than a request for a Christmas wall hanging, there were no guidelines or preferences. We started with a panel and coordinat...

When Hollie decides to quilt on Lolah, she comes armed with a bundle of quilt tops. She makes quilts to sell at Keepsake Crafts in Murray Corner when the shop opens for the tourist season. All three quilts started with the...

Another commission from our DIL's mother... I purchased this log cabin quilt top in the summer of 2013. I've always been attracted to navy and beige/white quilts. As I was picking up my purchases at the Lupin Quilt Fair and S...

When I first bought Lolah, I attended the Lupin Quilt Fair and Sale during our summer vacation for the purpose of purchasing quilt tops to use as longarm practice pieces. I never got the chance to quilt them until we moved ba...

The first time I met Irene, I knew she was special. She came to look at fabrics to make a quilt. She knew what she wanted to make but needed a pattern. I suggested she draw it out so that the next time she came, we'd be able ...

Longarm quilter
Introduction
                 
                 
                 
                 
I'm a wife, mother to 4 adult children, grandmother to 1 cute boy, who are all very supportive of me. I've quilted off and on since 1978 gifting a lot of quilts to family and friends. Since retirement, quilting has become an obsession so I decided to purchase a longarm quilting machine and try my hand at turning my quilt tops into finished quilts. The business side is called Spruce It Up Longarm Quilting Services.
