Custom Quilting on the Elevate
Did you know you can use the Gammill Elevate for more than just edge to edge quilting? Karen Marchetti shows us how to custom quilt using the block feature of the Elevate in this video tutorial.

About the Elevate: the Elevate is Gammill's introductory level computerization. Using a tablet, the Elevate allows you to quickly place, edit, and quilt edge-to-edge and block patterns. The computerization can be added to an existing Gammill or purchased with a complete quilting system. Build your Elevate system by clicking here.
Computerized & Hand Guided
Best of Both Worlds Double Irish Chain
Hand guided cross hatching and computerized block designs give this Double Irish Chain quilt the antique feel Linda Taylor was aiming for. Watch as she uses a ruler to quilt around the piecing. Then, she places a digital pattern with an antique design into the quilt blocks. Finally, she uses CreativeStudio to complete the quilt's borders. 
Hand Guided Blocks

Helping After Hurricane Harvey
In August and September 2017, Hurricane Harvey caused devastating flooding across areas of Texas. Although her home was spared, Lee Ann Lively of League City, Texas, saw the destruction many others in her area were dealing with including those in the nearby Bay Ridge neighborhood. Wanting to help, Lee Ann made it her mission to provide quilts to as many of those impacted by the flooding as possible. She put a call out to the quilting community and quilters from across America answered.
