I've got to get caught up on posting pictures of some of the customer quilts I have finished the last couple months. It seems if I don't get them posted right away, once they're back home with their owner, I get so busy I forget to do it. Don't you love these colors?
Closeup - I used Anne Bright's pantograph - Ocean Froth.

This is Peg's quilt. I used some leafy feathers and each big block got its own individual flower. I finished this awhile ago and just realized I hadn't posted pictures. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you are getting time to make some quilts.
The full quilt. I didn't take pictures of the back. The fabric was so busy that not much would have been seen.

Jackie has been waiting patiently for this jem, and I hope it will be worth the wait. I posted earlier about all the tools I used for this quilt, and will post more later this week. I quilted lots of feathers as they are one of my favorite things to do, particularly on a traditional quilt like this.
I used Glide primarily, with So Fine for the stitch in the ditch. Thanks for looking! Thanks, Jackie, for allowing me to finish your quilt. It was a pleasure.

This pretty quilt belongs to a customer, Jackie. I designed this border pattern just by trial and error and I used Linda Hrcka's #20 ruler, along with Renae Haddadin's arc ruler.
The process evolves from chalk on the fabric, to a whiteboard, then sketch pads and also my plexiglass which I lay over the fabric.
I'll be posting more the further along I get. Stay tuned. I'll show pictures of my drawings and tools if interested.

My friend Angi made this fun one. It was 41x51 (if I remember correctly) and she asked for modern quilting. I tried to keep this on the lower end of my pricing chart, so I stayed away from rulers, SID, and any type of marking. It was really a fun one to do. Here is a close up:

This was really a fun little project to do. It's another little table runner made by Christina and I felt like doing swirls. I have instructed her to do the SID between the little white border and the body of the piece - that's so I didn't have to add my ruler plate and change threads, etc.
