Featured Quilt - Amazing Longarm Quilting

Sometimes we are inspired by a memory to create a fantastic quilt. Sometimes we are inspired by what could have been. For Laurie Tigner, it was the later that helped her create her beautiful quilt, 828 Valence St. The quilt won Best Longarm Machine Workmanship Award at AQS QuiltWeek 2016 in Grand Rapids, Michigan and an Honorable Mention at PIQF 2017. As for that inspiration, Laure says, "I designed this quilt to express what my long ago garden in New Orleans could have been like in its days of glory." Featuring amazing longarm work that needs to be seen to be believed, I think we would all like to take a walk down Valence St. if it helped us create work as beautiful as this!
