I have a quilting friend who is fighting a battle with cancer. I think about what I take for granted as I read posts about her battle of overcoming fears, let alone the cancer.
When I ventured into longarm quilting, the big question was, will you quilt for others? I piped up, even after my first few quilts and said, that I wasn’t sure… I’m still practicing! Her comment to me was, “Elizabeth”, you will always be practicing!”. I think she wanted me to step out there and BE good enough. I know I never feel good enough at anything! I never stop learning.
If no one has noticed, I love my longarm! It has allowed me to finish projects that I never dreamed would be possible before. I have had a lot of fun learning and perfecting techniques of quilt design layout. I still have lots to practice and learn, but am very confident of my abilities with my computerized longarm machine. It is a relaxing, rewarding hobby.
With that, I am able to quilt more than I am able to piece, and decided I will go ahead and offer to quilt for others, if you are interested. I’m putting myself out there.
(Why have an empty quilting machine!)
Take a look at my available designs and my offering and let me know what you think. While I can’t offer my services for free (except you mom!), I can promise quick turn-around time as I do not have a long queue of “work” to do.
