Modern Quilt LOVE!!

My daughter, Christina, made this awesome quilt over two years ago and I just made time to quilt it.  This will be the last quilt for awhile.  

Just about the time I decided that I needed to take a break from customer strengthen my back, to stop and smell the roses, we got an offer on our home. Funny how things happen in life?  I will be storing my machine until I find a permanent home in Montana near our daughters.  I will be traveling between Montana and California for a couple years since my husband is still working, and still really enjoying his job.  In the meantime, our grands are just getting older and I want to be near them ASAP.  

Okay, so on with the quilt!  I decided to make this a free motion quilt sampler, doing a different design in each row.  Since it's my daughter's and it won't be shown ( mostly because I rushed through it and it's not show worthy) I really played around with it.  Thanks for stopping by!!

A Lone Star

YAmazingly this was my first time quilting one of these beauties.

This is Peggy's quilt, and it is all batiks.  Amazing the variation in hue when pictures are shot outdoors versus indoors, isn't it?  
I used Hobbs 80/20 and Glide thread. I am really enjoying the challenge of doing continuous curves with one stop/start.

Thanks for looking.

A Christmas Wreath

I had fun doing cc's on this tiny quilt. It was a great challenge seeing how far I could get without stopping. This is Teri's quilt that she was gifted. I think little quilts are always big fun. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Cathy's Appliqued Lamps

I just love a blue quilt, don't you?  Cathy made this cute one. 

 I've gotten to the end of my customer quilts, I just need to finish posting about them. I'm taking a much needed break for a few weeks. 
I'm so thankful for customers like Cathy. I hope she will wait for me. :)

Finishing a Handquilted Vintage Top

My friend asked me to finish this quilt.  It was made 25+ years ago by her stepmother for her daughter.  Her stepmother couldn't finish it, and felt really bad, and asked my friend if she could find someone to hand quilt it.  No luck there, but I was able to finish it for her.  It was a fun challenge.  I wanted it to look very similar to her hand quilting, and it needed to copy her motifs exactly.  

I think this is the tiniest set of feathers I have ever done.  The quilt was about 70% done! I just needed to do three of the blocks! sashing around them! and the feathers around the outside.  

The original quilters work was excellent, and her needle turn Dresden plates are fabulous.

Skateboards - too cute!

This is Gerri's quilt she made for her 12 year old grandson.  Isn't it cute?  I love it! I can see Devin or Landon asking for one of these in a a few years.
