Heather's Quilt

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

Mitzi's Locket Quilt

Sunday, March 20, 2016

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.

Burgoyne's Surround

Friday, March 18, 2016

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's Charity Quilt

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.

Peggy's Pinwheel

Peggy wanted the pinwheels on this quilt to stand out.  I digitized these curves to give it lots of movement as well.
