Recognizing Longarmers II


Some of you may know Bea of BeaQuilter but if not, take a long stroll thru her blog.  I haven't had the chance to use her longarmer skills yet, but I have enjoyed her helpful EQ skills with her Tutorial Tuesdays (no I haven't mastered it yet).


And she is, also, quite the pattern designer - a published designer as well as has some lovelies in Craftsy.   I did get to test one of her newest patterns which she tells about HERE.  I chose to make the large size for her - remember that month I was buried in LARGE quilts - this was one of them.


I love blocks that make secondary patterns.  And depending on what fabrics, number of fabrics, and  colors you use, you can get a totally different affect - you can see the different test quilts on her page.  


I love the tile affect I got from using just four colors.


And I used one of our local longarmers - Ron Lower - who is one of our Quilt Guild members. He knew I was on a time frame with this one and quickly did it right up for me - gotta appreciate that service. (yes, he did my SIL's quilt too) This was the first time he used this pattern and I love it.

Thank you Bea for letting me test one of your patterns, it was a new experience for me and I ended up with a wonderful quilt.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
