Use of Technology

The Sewing Machines:

Sewing machines today are high tech for sure!  They are computers within a sewing machine!

The piecing and top quilts of all my t-shirt quilts are made with an industrial strength Brother sewing machine. 

This Brother embroidery machine does all of my embroidery. It produces beautiful lettering in 6 different fonts and various sizes. 

This machine long arms EVERY MQBM quilt! It produces beautiful stitching through each and every quilt.

This machine is never very far from me in my shop! It was my mother's machine.  It is a Singer from the 1930's and was refurbished by my father.

Yes, it still works! But it doesn't stitch 1500 stitches per minute like the ones shown above!

Custom Graphics for Any Occasion:

With the use of digital photography and photo editing software such as Photoshop, I have been able to create truly custom graphics! Recently,  a customer inquired if I could make some t-shirts with the design, shown on the left. This design was used on her wedding invitation! An additional design was created.  This new design really gave the shirts some extra style. These 2 designs were screen printed on 6 pastel shirts matching the wedding colors.  

The center block was cream-just like their invitation!!  

Voila!  Custom shirts printed using custom designs for a custom Wedding quilt!  These shirt were then made into 12 blocks

and sprinkled though out the quilt.  They truly make this quilt a custom Wedding Quilt! 

Custom computer design + quilt = Wedding Bliss!
