For those who have asked....

Sooo many quilters have asked if i would offer a fabric kit for my Pumpkin Spice quilt pattern.
My quilt was simply made with leftover scraps and so no kits were available...until now! 

My friend Rhonda has an online fabric shop
 ...and came up with a wonderful assortment of similar fall colored fabrics resembling my Pumpkin Spice quilt.  These are NOT the same fabrics used in my quilt...but Rhonda has done an amazing job with her fabric selection!

Click over to her shop HERE and see for yourself!   Rhonda also has some nice coordinating fabrics to complete the inner and outer border too.  
There are only a handful of kits available...so hurry!  
If you need the Pumpkin Spice Quilt pattern...you'll find purchase options HERE

SOLD! Thank you Angela!!

I have been pondering this for quite some time...and decided to take the plunge.  I am selling my 2001 Gammill Classic Plus longarm.  

Why?  Because i am upgrading to a computerized system!  I have been longarming for 6 years and my business continues to grow.  With a computerized system, i will be able to accomplish more.  
Simple as that.  

Here's my Gammill Classic Plus!  Cool huh??
It has a stitch regulator for even stitches!
New handles, switches and main computer board replaced + full service all done in June 2014.

Horizontal and Vertical locks...Automatic and Manual mode...stitch length up and down 
 (the circle in the green screen is the refection of my camera)

Two sets of handles (front and back of machine) plus micro handles at the front for detailed custom quilting

Full light bar rewired with new ballasts and new florescent tubes in January 2015
 26" throat and a 12' table...can quilt king size quilts!

An additional galvanized tracking system so cords glide easily back and forth underneath.  

Newer wheels 


I'm throwing in a ton of Signature Threads...my Gammill loves this thread!  I have opened spools and a unopened spools in a vast variety of colors i am willing to include.

 Extra bobbins...lots of extra bobbins!  Many many more than what is shown here! 

Oh...and paper pantographs!   At least 90!  These cost on average $15 each.  

How about a Circle Lord too?  This picture below was taken from the Circle Lord site...click here to see what you can quilt using a Circle Lord.  

My Gammill Classic is a work horse!  
It has been well serviced and maintained by Jack Boersma over the years. 

Here's what you can do!  
Samples to show quality of the stitches.

 Baptist Fan pantograph
 Free hand custom
 Daisy Chain panto
 Feather Swirl panto

Looking to Sell...and Looking to Buy~~

So so sad the Buggy Barn closed their doors... :/  I've notice it's harder and harder to find their books too.  Spring Fever (quilt below) is one of my favorites!  I made this quilt a few years ago.  See my past blog posts here
I'm being asked over and over by my viewers if i know where one can purchase the Buggy Barn book Certifiably Crazy which includes the Spring Fever pattern.

Do You have this book?  Willing to sell it?  If so...leave a comment below with your email information. 
And for those looking to buy...contact whoever is willing to sell directly.  Thanks

On another note....My friend Bev is selling her Famous Farmer's Wife Sampler quilt. 

Bev needs to sell her quilt. Money's tight, she lost her job last month and she kissed her beloved Charlie goodbye. 

If  you love this quilt and can help...Now's your chance!  Bev's price is very very fair too! (i think it's a bit on the cheap side myself!)

 You'll find it on Ebay HERE

Beautifully pieced...shown by the above picture before it was machine quilted.
Machine quilted using Hobbs 80/20 batting and Superior Sew Fine Thread.    
See the pantograph quilting design used on Bev's quilt...HERE 
Now's your chance to own this quilt~~
 And YOU don't have to make it!!  Lol!
