long arm machine quilting

This little fellow likes to think he runs the place, and he probably does, but with such a cute face how could you resist it?!
He likes to keep an eye on me while I am working on the long-arm machone: quilting lovely quilts like this beauty I recently finished for Lyn:
This is such a stunning quilt that Lyn has made, showcasing her sashiko stitching.
Using the thread colours of golds, orange and reds has also made it a very different colour palette from what you normally might see with sashiko. For quilting it, I used a charcoal thread so it wouldn’t be too obtrusive on the coloured blocks and kept the quilting to a minimum on the sashiko blocks.
The quilting on the main body of the quilt was free-hand in a design to match some of the fabric with a few dragon flies here and there, while I did a fan design on the borders.
I can’t wait to see it when Lyn has trimmed and added the binding!
