Ruthie's Quilting Studio

Quilting by Ruthie Wasmuth

Located in Lafayette, Indiana. 

Ruthie's Quilting is celebrating 10 years in business.  


I do mostly Edge-to-Edge, or Pantograph quilting. Check the Edge-to-Edge page for a listing of the quilting designs available. If you don't see what you want, just let me know and I am happy to order new a pantograph.  


I have a few customers that like custom quilting so I schedule those about one per month. Check the Custom Quilting page to see samples of this type of quilting.  


I also make t-shirt or memory quilts from start to finish. Bring me your shirts and/or clothing to start the process of making them into a wonderful memory for you. Check the T-Shirt/Memory Quilts page for samples and more information.

Longarm Quilting

My long-arm quilting studio is in our home, which is smoke-free and pet-free. My machine is a Hand-Guided Gammill Premier Plus on a Home-Pro steel stand. I named the machine Mabel because she shares the room with a 12' long L-shaped bar. She is a stitch-regulated machine, which means that each and every stitch is the same length. We bonded very quickly and I feel like I have been long-arm quilting forever.

My Background

I've been sewing since the age of 12 when I made an apron in Home Economics class. I made a quilt in the late 1970's with scraps left-over from making clothes for my children. The backing was a bed sheet and I hand quilted it on a large hand-quilting frame.  Needless to say, I had no desire to make another quilt for many years.      Fast-forward to 1999…….I went to Joann Fabrics for some Halloween costume fabric and I purchased a Quilt Block of the Month on clearance for $2. I went home, assembled that block and my quilting journey had begun.    Until July 19, 2007, I did all my quilting on my now 17 year old Janome machine.  My first try at stippling was a success, due to the fact that I decorated cakes for more than 20 years and there is a cake decorating technique called "Cornelli Lace"  that is exactly like micro-stippling.
