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.
