I have to admit that I have been keeping a secret from my customers for awhile now. I have been secretly signing their quilts…….it’s a silly thing, really.
It began a few years ago when I quilted Tula Pink’s name in her quilts. Then I joked with Tula Pink about how I was going to quilt my name on her quilt with red thread. While I definitely haven’t been quilting my whole name with red thread, I have been adding the letter A to most of the quilts that I quilt…..actually, it looks more like an @ sign.
Does this quilt look familiar?
I don’t always remember to do it on all the quilts I quilt. And I always make sure that it is well hidden, I definitely don’t want it to stand out.
It’s really more for my own amusement then anything else!
Unless anyone complains, I plan to keep cracking myself up by quilting an A in my customer’s quilts!
I have been nominated for Best Longarm Quilter, which is an honor, but the even cooler thing is that I am on the list with Karen McTavish. She is my quilting idol, her quilting is what made me realize that quilting can be another layer of art on a quilt. There are also other categories that you can vote on, such as Best Online Shop and Best Designer. Go check it out and vote for your favorites!
