Blogging virgin scores!

Welcome to Longarm Diva blogspot! This is the home of Lakeside Quilting in Ebony, VA, owned and operated by me, Donna Turner. I'm getting my feet wet on the web by blogging. If I get up the nerve, I may even go on to having a web site for my customers to see, but for now, this is enough of a beginning for me.

This weekend I'm joining lots of other fabric junkies on Pat Sloan's Camp Sloanie Stashbuster site. This is the quilt I'm working on for this project. It's filled with luscious Kaffe Fassett fabrics, gem tones, and black and white strips.

My friend Mary from Maryland, also a longarmer and avid quilter, is spending a few days with me. Well, more than a few. She no sooner had left Maryland to travel down here than a blizzard hit up there, so she's here until the highways, and specifically her street, can be dug out.

Meanwhile, we sip cafe mocha and eat Jelly Belly beans and sew, sew, sew!

I'll post some pictures of my quilting for you to see tomorrow. I have a Nolting 24 Pro longarm with the Intelliquilter computerized robotics set up on it. You'll be able to see how beautifully this combination enhances quilts.

Good night for now. See you tomorrow!


  1. Hi there Donna, Mary sent me over. I looks like you gals are in for some fun sewing time. I'm sure Mary is glad she got out in time ;-) Enjoy your weekend. Post your results.

  2. I love the colors in the quilt posted on your blog!!!
