On most quilts, when the finished quilting is completed, you
shouldn’t know its there . . . at least, not at the beginning.
If you’re looking at the quilt top of a finished quilt, the
pattern and thread color of the finished quilt should subtly
enhance and not be the focal point. As your eye scans the quilt
top and a few moments go by, you will undoubtedly start to
notice the subtleness of the patterns created by the stitching
and how the color of the thread brightens or contrasts with the
colors already in the top.

It is challenging to find just the right finishing pattern and colors to
complete a quilt. For me, this process begins when I see your quilt for
the very first time. I listen to your ideas and then we collaborate to
determine the best design to finish your quilt in the perfect way.
After our initial meeting, I will continue to think about the design we
have discussed. Then, a day or two prior to putting your creation on the
Longarm machine, I raise your quilt in my workspace and let it hang
there while I contemplate any final design ideas. If something inspires
me other than the original design, I will call you and review my ideas.
Whatever decision you make at this point will become the final design.
After I pin the quilt on the machine, and the stitching begins, your
masterpiece is only a few hours away from being completed. If you choose
to have me do the final binding, I will happily sew that on to complete
