Two long-arm quilters at work

These two long arm quilters are among many who maintain blogs to showcase their work. Their blogs are entertaining and informative, with lots of lovely quilting to get readers thinking:

Jeanette Bruce from Gone Aussie Quilting (blog) and The Quilting Platypus (Jeanette's long-arm quilting service located near Bombala, NSW, where she works from her home on a sheep and cattle station, on a river that is home to platypuses) - has posted photos of a nice layout of drunkards path blocks looking a little like clamshells, in beautiful Anna Maria Horner fabrics (the snake story is a little scary, though ...).

Jenny Pedigo writes two blogs, Sew Kind of Wonderful and Jenny's Doodling Needle to share her work on her own quilts (including designing with the Quick Curve Ruler she has invented and markets), and some of her customers' quilts. She often includes progress posts so that you can watch the quilt 'emerge', and really appreciate the role of the quilting in its evolution from patchwork to finished quilt. A recent post, Urban Nine Patch Wrap Up, is a grerat example of her work as a designer and quilter.
