Welcome Home

Welcome Home Quilt

Sandra had this quilt top finished for quite some time always hoping to quilt it on her domestic machine, however once I got my APQS Millennium long-arm quilting machine she decided to have me quilt it for her.  We opted for some pantograph using popcorn by Jodi Beamish which looks like clouds for the background and some ruler work around the buildings.

 I also did a little shingling on some roofs and grass around the border and in front of the houses.

We decided one of the buildings was a Quilt Shop.

Sandra planned on giving this quilt to her daughter who farms.

If you are a quilter your house may be in pieces.


  1. What a lovely quilt. I enjoyed the thought which went into the quilting. How great to find a quilt shop in the scene.
