Last Night's Meeting

Last night's program at our meeting was Jill Schumache who is an award winning machine quilter. She does all her machine quilt on her sewing machine.....not a long arm. One of her prize willing quilts is shown below. I think she said it took her over 800 hours to quilt this beautiful quilt.

The quilting she does on a regular sewing machine is unbelievable......see the detail below. She spends hours and hours machine quilting her quilts.

Tomorrow I'm taking a machine quilting workshop from her.....I can't wait. I don't think I'll be able to quilt as well as she does but I just want to improve my machine quilting skills. For more pictures check out the Manteca Quilters web site.
