and then along came Bob. . .

I began quilting 26 years ago in Martinez, Georgia, just sitting around a quilt frame with several other ladies at our church as we hand quilted a raffle quilt for our yearly auction. I fell in love with quilting and have been passionate about it since that time.

I began machine quilting in 1991, as I realized how many more quilts I could get completed to share with others by using this quicker technique, plus, maybe keep up with the dozens of quilts in my head that I wanted to make.

I continued to quilt on my Bernina sewing machine, yet it was difficult getting those large quilts under the arm of the machine, and I felt I was limited to the designs that I could do. Finally, in the spring of 2006, I became interested in getting a longarm quilting machine. After checking them out, getting the okay with my dh, Wayne, I took the plunge and purchased a Gammill Classic+ last May. And that's where this story really begins ........and then along came Bob............oh yes, don't you know, all longarm machines have to have a name as they become your quilting partner, and dh named him Bob!

Now I quilt for others to help them get their tops turned into quilts - after all, it's not a quilt until it's quilted. So, if you need some quilting done, send me an email and let's make more quilts!
