When I give my longarm quilter a quilt, I rarely ask for her to do a pattern. She is the expert and she quilts my quilts with love. I did ask for stars to be used when quilting this special Military Veteran’s quilt. But, Meloney went way further and quilted the quilt with both stars and a little bit of micro-quilting where I had placed raw edge applique. I am sure the recipient of this quilt will treasure it, in part because it is made especially for him and in part because of the beautiful quilting Meloney has done.
