Marilyn Badger takes us along with her in her article “My Longarm Journey – What a Wild Ride!” in the March/April 2018 Issue of Machine Quilting Unlimited. Her first longarm was purchased in 1991, and in 2002 she won her first major quilt show award for a longarm quilted quilt.
Marilyn’s quilt Champagne SuperNova graces the cover of the magazine this month, but we thought you’d like to see another of her quilts from the article. Here’s a peek at one of the quilts in the article called “Superstar“.
Marilyn tells us in her article, “In 2010 I decided to make a design using a block out of Claudia’s book “A Passion for Piecing”, resulting in my quilt Superstar.”

“It is largely made of dupioni silk, with various cottons for the background and a little of Paula Nadelstern’s fabric thrown in the mix,” she explains. There’s lots more to read about the making of this incredible quilt in her article.
