Hi, my name is Tami Levin and I'm the owner of The Quilted Lemon in my home based studio in Sunnyvale, CA where I transform your lovely pieced quilt tops into beautiful finished quilts. Contact me by email: tami@theQuiltedLemon.com to schedule a quilt design consultation.
I learned how to sew as a little girl from my mother and grandmother. Many Barbie doll outfits later, I made my first quilt during home economics class at junior high school in 1980. (It was for my newest baby cousin who kept it as her binkie for the next five years.) That was it. I've been hooked on quilting and have made baby quilts for family and friends ever since.
There was a bit of a quilting break while I earned my BFA in fashion design in Los Angeles at Otis College of Art & Design, then spent the next decade working as a swimwear designer.
For the last 12 years I've returned to my passion of creating quilts - including some original designs. After getting excited about FMQ (Free Motion Quilting) on my domestic sewing machine, I took the next step and bought a longarm quilting machine to share my passion of quilting with others. I work on an APQS (American Professional Quilting Systems) Freedom longarm with IntelliQuilter (IQ) robotics. I call him Freddie. Let me use my design skills and the beautiful regulated stitches of Freddie to give your pieced quilt tops a professional quilted finish. I'm as meticulous and detail oriented about your quilts as I am with my own.
