That's right!! Those of you that have followed this blog know that my passion is the long arm quilting. My soul just blossoms when I'm quilting. I have wanted to start a long arm business for many years now. I've dabbled a bit and I've done a few customer quilts over the years. But it's always been this thing I did on the side. I now want to change that. I want to step out of the crazy world product development and technology and jump head first into the artistry of long arm quilting! I want to do edge to edge (I have 2 computerized long arms - if it's digitized, I can quilt it), custom (what I LOVE the most - feathers and ruler work), teaching and machine rental. I want to do it ALL!!! I have a Big dream!!
I'm down to reduce hours at work, hoping after the first of the year to reduce even more and by next birthday to have hours down to zero. It's a big goal, I have to work really hard to make that happen, but a girl just has to give it a try and follow her dreams!!
With that, I'll share my Big Dream Panel - appropriate right? I just needed to get my frustrations that have building up the past few months out is the form of some incredible feathers. And feather this baby I did!! I have a number of different feathers in this one, from formal traditional feathers, a vine-y feather with curls, a lacy curl feather and a few others. This sweet thing has two layers of batting, one Hobbs Poly Down on the bottom and Hobbs Wool on Top. I want to hang this and that's why I chose the poly, I also want some incredible definition in the quilting which is why I choose the wool. The Poly gets a bit stiff with the dense quilting and the wool gives wonderful puff.
My dream is to quilt all day!! With the grand opening there is 25% for the rest of this year, yep that's right, the rest of this year.
