Longarm Machine Quilting by Ruth McCormick

Welcome! to my website, where you will find information about my Professional Longarm Machine Quilting business.

I have been long arm machine quilting since 2007, have competitive rates and reasonable time frames for allover designs.  The Custom quilting time frame is longer and depends on the timing of upcoming local quilt shows and the Holiday season.

Mug Rugs

“When life gives you lemons, make lemon-aide.”    The quilter’s version?  “When there is little time for quilting, make Mug Rugs!”

Short horned Grasshopper

My most recent little quilt – made for the January 12×12 Art Group Green Challenge .  Yes! Every bit of this quilt is green – green fabrics (very light to very dark), green fabric marker, and green Sulky Holoshimmer thread (wings). The leaves were quilted from the back side, using the printed fabric as a guide.
