I’m pleased to share with you my updated website that I’ve created with you in mind! You can now select your own pantograph design right on my website under the tab “Pantographs” tab. Once you find the design you’d like for your quilt, you can copy the name of the design then click “Book a Quilt” at the top of the page and paste the name in the “Message to Sherri” section of the form. If you’re not sure of the design you want, just fill out the form and let me know – I’m here to help.
New Longarm Machine - M20 Innova
What is it and why should you care? Let me tell you! My new M20 Innova longarm machine sits on a 12’ foot frame in my studio which holds up to a 120” quilt top. The M20 is not computerized, but will function as my dedicated custom and ruler work longarm – which I LOVE doing! Prefer an E2E design? This still impacts you! Because… the new M20 frees up "Lucille", my computerized Innova 26” for quilting your E2E designs. In a nutshell - All this means that I will now have a quick turn-around (1-2 weeks) for most quilts. Yay!

Question of the Month
Do I need to wash my fabric/quilt before I send it to you for quilting?
Backing fabrics should always be washed to remove any sizing or other chemicals the manufacturer has put onto the fabric. Washing also makes the fabric softer, which aids in smoother needle action as the needle and thread go through the backing pulling the thread up to the quilt top and vice versa.
Quilt top fabrics. I’m a proponent that fabrics that are being pieced together for a utility quilt (one that will be used and loved) should be washed before piecing. This is also a way to find out if the fabric dyes will run or bleed. I always use SHOUT Color Catcher’s when washing fabric (at least 2!) If the quilt top will be used as an art piece to be displayed on a wall or other surface, I do not wash the quilt top fabrics (only the backing).
