Karen's Berries

I finished Karen's little quilt with some feathers and circles and loops. She hand embroidered sayings on it so I kept the quilting minimal in that area. 

I always love a white back when I can use white top thread!

Sweet Baby Quilt #2

This is the second of two baby quilts that Peg has kindly asked me to quilt. I applied my more modern free motion skills for this.

Karen's Quilt

Karen made this sweet and cheery quilt.  I made this a light custom quilting and I think it looks so cute!

Cutest Baby Quilt!

I am smitten with Peg's quilt she will be gifting to a new mom.  I hope you are finding time to do what you enjoy!  This little quilt certainly says Spring, doesn't it?

Sherrie's Quilt

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 was a fun quilt to do - so bright and cheery.  Thanks Sherrie!  I hope Desiree loves it.

Light Custom on a BQ Quilt

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.

Wool, Homespun Fabrics, and Feathers Make this a Jewel!

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.  

The full quilt!  It was hard to fit this one in my living room.  The quilt is 94x98.

The back!
Thanks for looking.

Loving This Border!

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.

Modern Quilting

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:

Here is a pic of the back...

And one of the full quilt.

Swirly Tablerunner

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.  

The back of this one deserved its own picture.
