Quilting over stitchery

This is part of a stitchery quilt made by Jenny from Toowoomba.  E2e quilting (happy times pattern) is matching thread to background panel colour means the machine quilting has practically nil visual effect on the stitchery.  We take a similar approach to applique, candle-wicking and the like.

March Madness - don't miss out!

Hello Geoff & Kathy,

My quilts were received yesterday in very good order – an amazing turn-around time. This was the first time using your quilting service & similarly echo the sentiments of other ‘patcher’s who have had their quilts ‘finished’ by you.

I join with them in singing praises of your professionalism & expertise in the service you provide, the constructive suggestions you offer with regard to choice of quilting designs & thread colours to compliment the quilt ultimately turning the sometimes very ordinary into something extraordinary - truly wonderful results exceeding expectations.

Thank you too for your generosity - the “March Madness” offer (lucky to stumble upon) to celebrate your 15th Anniversary – may your business continue to flourish for many years to come – I shall certainly return. Finishing now has a whole new meaning - UFO's should be a thing of the past !!!!

Thank you again most sincerely, Georgene, Bilambil Heights, NSW.
