Classic meets Modern QAL: Link your quilt tops here to win!

12:31:00 PM

This post is long overdue. My sincerest apologies!

Life has been more than crazy lately, and it took surgery last week and forced convalescence to actually sit and write a blog post. 


As a lot of my readers know, we recently purchased a home, and at the end of February moved 2 crazy kidlets and a chocolate labby boy into our new nest. More on that, soon.

More importantly:

For those whom have been participating in the Classic meets Modern Quilt Along, thank you for linking up your quilt tops below!

Aren't they all gorgeous??

Melissa hard at work!
So, as a bit of a present from me for participating along with me for my first quilt along and for showing me what your interpretation of modern is, I contacted my super awesome quilty buddy at Sew Shabby Quilting, Melissa. And she's offered up a little something for one of you, and I'm throwing in some goodies from my stash, may have read on my blog that I send a lot of my bigger quilts to Melissa to quilt for me. Because she is awesome. 

Firstly, her edge-to-edge computerized quilting is super reasonably priced and is gorgeous.

Secondly, her custom quilting is amazing. Like, breathtaking. Seriously. 

Melissa is located in Utah, and offers professional long-arm machine quilting from $.01 per square inch. Whether you are located in Utah or out of state you will find her services competitive and hard to come by!

Her turnaround times are really reasonable, too, with her computerized edge to edge almost never taking more than 10 days. Love! And she's just started carrying Wool Quilter's Dream batting (eep!).
just a small sample of some of the computerized patterns Melissa offers!

Please take a minute to head over to her site {here} to check out the patterns she provides, or {here} on my About my Sponsors page to learn more about this downright cool chick.
