Blueberry Ice

A very pretty pattern that my client requested I quilt it like the original.  She had the pattern included for me to review.  I changed the feathers and swirls just a little.   Plus her version had 2 borders.   I "ghosted" the design into the first border and added beadboard to the outer border.   Quilters Dream wool batting.  This is going to be so pretty after washing and will be a nice bed quilt.   Backing uses 3 WOF in coordinating prints.

Midnight Harvest #2

This is the 2nd one of these that I have quilted with the tops being made by friends.  Quilting requested in a style similar to the original designer's version quilted by  "The Quilted Pineapple".  Lovely wool applique!

It's a Jewel of a quilt!

What a fun custom to quilt!    This was made by the Wanna Bees of WAQG as a donation to the MDAnderson Ovarian Cancer Quilt Project 2015.   I have since found the pattern name to be called "Squedge 22.5".   It's a free pattern that comes with the wedge ruler purchase.   I also found a you tube video showing how to cut this out.   Really fun!   I may have to order one of those, a quilter always needs more rulers right?   But on to the quilt, lots of feathers and lines - oh my!

Back Busy border, doesn't show quilting.  This quilt and others will be auctioned in October of 2015.  You can follow this quilt on their facebook page OvarianCancerQuiltProject.  If you are at Quilt Festival this year, stop by their booth (not vendors but on the other side of the quilt displays you will find educational booths).   I'm told this quilt will be there!

Asian themed Crane panel wallhanging

Another fantastic quilt by Karen.  The fabrics are gorgeous and I tried to let those be the focus of the quilt.  I knew she wanted the cranes to appear like they had been trapunto quilted so I needed to quilt densely in the background of that panel.  Thread embellishment, background fill and some border treatments finished this off nicely.   I really like the way this turned out.  My husband like this one so much he tried to buy it from Karen!

Red Hot and CW Sampler

These cute quilts were quilted by me using 2 of my favorite designs.  It's amazing  sometimes how that panto or all over design really creates unity across scrappy quilts plus you get more quilting overall than a light custom treatment.  I love these and would enjoy snuggling with them any day.
