Free Motion Quilting (FMQ)

Edge to Edge (E2E) FMQ is an overall design that is stitched from all edges of the quilt top. Swirls, loops, wavy lines, flowers, maybe even a dragonfly - the options are endless! This is free motion and by hand - not computerized.

Pantograph Quilting

Pantographs come in hundreds of designs. A pattern is followed using a laser guide and the edge to edge outcome looks "computerized". My pantographs are hand guided.

Custom Quilting

Custom Quilting can include ruler work, detailed FMQ of specific areas, and marking of the quilt top for design elements. This method is much more detailed but leads to a unique, individualized (I call it organic!) look.
