I make Custom Draperies, Custom-made bedspreads and I piece quilts and Machine Quilt with my Nolting Pro 30" long-arm. You will be seeing a variety of pictures and who knows what else.

Location: Alliance, Nebraska, United States

I try to juggle making custom draperies and machine quilting. My husband and I have been married 43 years and have 5 children and 16 grandchildren.

Quilting-Wavy diamond- 1/2" self welt

The quilting on this coverlet was wavy diamond. This is how a slighly rounded bottom looks. You might use this when the coverlet is over a skirt. The bottom edge of the coverlet will hang closer to the floor.

This coverlet has 7 oz fill and 1/2" self welt.
