Christmas, Quilting, and A Look Ahead

It's about a week before Christmas and I'm almost done with the Christmas quilts. The last one is on the frame today! It has been such a delight to be a part of some of the wonderful quilty gifts that are going to be given this year. While I'm quilting them, I'm always imagining the looks on the recipients' faces when they receive something made for them with so much love. Quilts are figuratively (and literally!) some of the warmest gifts that can be exchanged. I love the idea of someone snuggling up under something I made for them.

I will have a little break over the holiday, and I'm looking forward to working on personal quilts. I'm still working on my temperature quilt. I have a couple of quilts to work on for a UFO Challenge for my guild. I have a couple of custom quilts for clients coming up, and I'm enjoying dreaming about the design possibilities. (Yes, I dream about quilting.) I'm also going to take a couple of days to not think about quilting or do any sewing at all ... because taking time to recharge is also important!

I've met a lot of new quilting friends this year, and I've been fortunate to have a lot of support for my quilting adventures. If you've quilted with me in 2022, I send my heartfelt thanks for your support and for trusting me with your treasures. I'm so glad to have been a small part of your creative journey. If you haven't yet quilted with me, or if you've never had a quilt longarm quilted before and the whole process seems daunting, please feel free to drop me an email or a text. I'm happy to answer all of your questions and frankly, I just enjoy chatting about your quilts.

To preserve my holiday break, I'm not accepting any more quilts for 2022, but ... I do want to start 2023 off on the right foot. January is my birthday (the 17th!), so I'm going to give you all a little gift to celebrate ... edge to edge quilting for only 1.7 cents/sq. in. That's 25% off the already-low rate of 2.25 cents/sq. in. that you can get all year long. The details are listed below.

I wish you all a safe, peaceful, and relaxing end of 2022. May the new year bring you health and happiness.

The Aussie's Birthday Promotion guidelines:

  • Discounted rate applies only to quilts booked and paid through January 1-31, 2023. If you're ordering your quilting via our online form, wait until January 1 for the discounted rate to be active on the website.

  • If your quilt isn't quite finished, you can bring or send it any time until March 31, but you must book and pay for your quilting in January to receive the discounted rate.

  • Quilts will be completed in the order received.

  • Discounted rate applies only to edge-to-edge digital quilting.

  • One discounted quilt per customer. Do you have a big quilt you've been dreading quilting? This is the sale for you.

  • Choose any design from hundreds of patterns for the same rate. As always, there is no increased charge for complex or dense quilting.

  • No restrictions on quilt size, but the $50 minimum quilting charge still applies, so this is a great time to get those bigger quilts done.

  • No customer batting can be used on discounted quilts. Choose your batting from any of my lovely Quilters Dream battings.

  • If you have questions about having a quilt longarm quilted, book a free, no-obligation quilt consultation online or just give me a call. I'm happy to talk quilting anytime.
