2 More Lovelies by Mary

First time customer Mary brought me 5 quilts on her first visit in January.  I've posted a few photos previously and these are the last 2 I just finished up today. It appears that Mary may have had these quilts for a while just waiting to be quilted.

Mary is a lovely senior who is really enjoying quilting in her later year and doing a great job.  I think she mentioned some of these are for grandchildren. I really hope Mary likes what I've done as she gave me free reign to do whatever I wished.

Freehand quilting on both.  The first is freehand petal flower design and the second is freehand soft floral design.

Feather Bed Quilt pieced by Julie

This is a great quilt pattern called "Feather Bed Quilt" by Anna Marie Horner.  Julie did a wonderful job piecing this beauty, although she did mention that at times it was a bit of a challenge.  Julie made this quilt for her daughter who is in university down south.  Julie is the only customer of mine that loves the large stipple quilting design on her quilts and although every once and a while I can talk her into something else she usually reverts back to the large stipple.

I used a 100% cotton variegated thread Tutti by Wonderfil and Julie agreed on the Dream Puff batting.  I love the texture the batting gives to this quilt - she did too.

Very Hungry Caterpillar by Sheila

Sheila R brought in this adorable Very Hungry Caterpillar panel quilt.  How adorable is this and didn't it turn out awesome!

T-Shirt Quilt - Another Joint Effort with Girlfriend Max

As some of you know, my girlfriend Max and I occasionally take on the task of making a commission quilt from scratch and this is our latest endeavor.  Max did the piecing of the blocks and borders after I did some preliminary fusing and rough cutting.   The piecing on this beauty was no small task as it ended up being a honkin 85"x 112" in size.   I  must admit though, I was fairly confident that the young man who will receive this quilt is tall as the shirts are all from his competition basketball days in junior high and high school.   After Max did her great work on the top,  I then pieced the leftovers into the back, quilted it and finished it off with hand sewn binding.

The customer chose the fabric and I love the definite masculine feel of this quilt. The quilting is freehand double swirls using a silver polyester thread by Madiera and the batting was Dream Puff.

I just have to share - Carrie picked up this quilt for her son Thursday and was over the moon.  Yeah!!!! Another happy customer - just the way we like it - right Max?

Cabin Quilt by Donna C

Donna C brought me this great quilt that she made as a gift for either her son or daughter for their cabin at the lake.  Can't you just see it draped over a sofa in front of the blazing fireplace ?  So cozy - great job Donna.

Still Smiling - Dragon Panel Quilt by Donna

Donna brought this adorable baby panel quilt in for me to finish up for her.  I must confess I am still smiling - the characters on this quilt are soooo cute.  I'm sure the little one receiving this will be smiling as well. The designers of these panels do such a great job.

Cat Quilt by Jane and Friends

Our small guild has a Tin Can Project where each participant chooses fabric to go into a tin can.  They then pass the so called tin can to a different participant each month.  Each person makes up a block from the fabric in the tin can and passes the tin can on to another participating member. At the end of the season we all end up with a number of blocks to do with whatever we like.

This is what girlfriend Jane make out of her blogs.  Now needless to say Jane but a lot more work into placing the blocks and adding shashing, borders, etc.  Didn't it turn out adorable!   Jane made this quilt as a gift for her sister who is a cat lover.

Mary's lovely Pink Quilt

Mary decided she wanted all the quilts she had laying around finished off.  She brought me a number of them and didn't have any idea of what she wanted and this is the second one.  Love the colors and the traditional pattern.  The quilting is freehand soft flowers using Tutti variegated thread.
