Sue's Quilt

Sue designed this quilt and wanted it quilted in a particular way - straight lines.  She will then hand quilt circles of various sizes over the whole surface.  I am looking forward to seeing the finished product. 

The she asked her friend to test the pattern for her and asked me to do "any" all over design on it.  So I did my version of swirls and feathers since I haven't done that for awhile.

Irish Mist

Carol made a beautiful Irish Mist quilt for her daughter and asked me to quilt it for her.  These are the projects I love - custom quilting! 

From Dinner Napkins

Kristie gather up the napkins used at her cousin's wedding and made a quilt with them.  This quilt has a very traditional look to it so feathers are in order.  Also a motif for the "negative" space of the neutral space between the colours of the "flowers".  We are both pretty pleased with the way it turned out so her cousin should love when she receives it for Christmas.


Brenda made a quilt for her bed at her place in Arizona.  Of course the pix I took of the entire quilt top did not turn out, but here are a few close ups of the quilting.  It's a very colourful quilt and not "traditional".  As I was quilting it, I kept thinking "Arizona" - sunny.  Nothing traditional about this quilt!

The Last Word on Dorothy's Quilt

I love to see "my" quilts with their final owners.  Dorothy gave her quilt to her cousin Donna, who sent these pix of it on her bed.  Looks pretty awesome if you ask me!
