My friend Jan very generously asked me and my sister if we'd like to come quilt on her fantastice and amazing long arm quilting machine.  Naturally we jumped at the chance!

I quilted a vintage c.1960's log cabin quilt top that I have had waiting in my attic for several years.  Jan suggested a free form daisy quilting pattern, which was just perfect for the 60's :)

This is my sister Marisa quilting a 1930's themed block exchange quilt.  A group of us made and exchanged 1930's blocks a few years ago.
