Here is a fantastically pieced sampler quilt from Jane. There was lots of opportunity for heirloom quilting in the yellow background. It turned out lovely.

If you ever wondered what impact quilting makes on a quilt, here is a great set of examples. These quilts were for three sisters, made with the same fabric line and the same espresso linen background fabric.
Here are all three side-by-side:

Love, love, love this quilt top pieced by Heather. I digitized a concentric circle edge-to-edge pattern that complimented the border fabric.

Mitzi pieced this amazing quilt as a wedding gift for her cousin. She used this free locket quilt pattern featured on Fat Quarter Shop.
I wanted to keep the look of the quilt elegant and sophisticated. I outlined nearly every part of the quilt with 1/4 inch lines to achieve this feel and used what I call 'chubby loops' to fill in the white background.
The squares in the center of the lockets really spoke to me, so I repeated them throughout the quilting.

Recently I've been doing a slew of custom quilts. This quilt kicked it all off. I had a lot of fun doing. I wanted to keep the feel of the quilt traditional, but give it a bit of a modern touch as well.
Cindy did a beautiful job piecing this quilt. She used her low volumes in the background and a pop of color for the lines and circles. I used 70/30 Quilters Dream batting as a base layer and Dream Wool on the top to make it all pop even more.
On the back Cindy used this beautiful 55" essex linen which gave the quilt a nice weight. I've had several customers use this lately on their backs and they tell me it's nice and soft after a couple of washes.

Cathy paper pieced the kites on this beautiful quilt she made for a charity auction for CASA. The highest bid came in at $950...amazing! I used this fantastic Irish Swirls wind pattern.

Love this top Cathy put together for her daughters for family outings and picnics! I kept the feel very geometric, while adding some curves with the loops and feathers.
