A few months ago I did this Stairway to Heaven quilt tutorial for Moda Bakeshop. I did not finish it via quilt as-you-go as I normally do, so I ended up with a quilt top that sat in my sewing nook for months.
I love quilt as-you-go because there's a sense of pride you get when you can say you finished an entire quilt all on your own (plus the quickness of Quilt As-You-Go Made Modern is always a plus), but I still enjoy making quilts the traditional way as well. That being said, I can end up with unfinished quilt tops laying around. Anyone else guilty of this? ;)
To my timely luck, my good friend Monica (owner of The West Seattle Fabric Company), just opened machine quilting services in her shop. Monica asked me if I had anything laying around that I needed to just get done and so I jumped at the opportunity to get this quilt finished, once and for all! One less work-in-progress, right?!
So after months of my sad quilt top folded up in my sewing nook, I bundled it up, dropped it off at her shop with high hopes, and...
...VOILA! Within 10 days my quilt was finished. Monica did a beautiful job, and took such great care of my quilt! She quilted the cutest hearts with edge to edge machine quilting.
What was refreshing about The West Seattle Fabric Company's machine quilting services was the super fast turnaround time. Their goal is to get your quilt back to you within 10 days. They are able to accomplish this via straight forward, edge to edge quilting options.
All you would do is mail in your quilt top and backing (or choose a backing from their shop - they have minky and flannel options for the backing fabric, too!), and then they'll mail your quilt back to you within 10 days. Super simple. That's how I like it!
I love to share my quilting experiences with you all, and this was a very good one! I'm really looking forward to getting a quilt finished with minky backing. I'll let you know how that goes once it happens. :)HERE.
