February & March Customer Quilts

>> Friday, April 30, 2010

So here it is almost May and I'm finally posting my customer quilts for February & March. I've been incredibly busy quilting, greenhousing (not a word, I know) and watching my girls' dance competitions. So on to the pictures...

Cute scrappy throw for Heather B. I quilted this with an all-over swirl pattern.

Straw Hat Sam antique quilt for JoAnn W. I quilted this with a small stipple all over and did a little tacking down on each Sam so I didn't take away from the cute applique.

Cute fall wall hanging for JoAnn W. I quilted this with an all-over loop pattern in the body of the quilt and added some detail to the pumpkins, and I did pumpkins & vines in the outside border.

I love these darling baby quilt samplers from JoAnn W. I quilted different detail in each of the blocks.

Here's the second baby quilt sampler for JoAnn W...

...and the third.

This adorable ladybug baby quilt was for Bette G. I quilted flowers, loops, and vines throughout this one with some detail in the applique flowers. I quilted flowers and vines in the outside border.

This darling fairytale quilt was from Betty W. I did swirls in the red sashing, meander in the map blocks, and detail on the castle--tight stipple to give a rock effect, and clouds in the sky above the castle. I also quilted double loops in the green border and a swirl pattern in the blue outside border.

And 3 more Aggie Star wall hangings for Utah State University. Each one is a little different because I used scraps from the bigger quilts I've done. The bigger quilts measure 72" square, and these ones are 36" square. And yes, I know they're blurry. I had the wrong camera lens on, and that's the best I could do before I sent them out the door.

Here's the second Aggie Star...

...and the third.

Lissy's Flowers for Julia T. I love these ragged flowers that look like lollipops. I quilted this one with an all-over flower & vine pattern with flowers, leaves and vines in the outside border.

Here's a sweet pink & brown patchwork quilt for Julia T. with some cute rick-rack detail in the corners. I quilted a hodge-podge of flowers, leaves, vines, swirls & loops in the body of the quilt. The brown inner border had little pink stars on the fabric, so I quilted stars & loops in that border and flowers & vines in the outside pieced border.

And the next 6 pictures are some large Grandmother's Garden table toppers that I quilted for Marilyn G. She hand pieced each one of these, and I love all the different 1930s reproduction prints she chose to make each one look a little different. I quilted an assortment of swirls, flowers and double loops in each row.

Here's the second...




...and sixth. She's been busy!

And unfortunately, I let one get away during March without a picture first. I also did a beautiful table topper in civil war reproduction prints for Julia F. Hopefully I can get a picture from her and get that posted. Now I'd better get busy starting a post for April!

About . . .

Quilting is good therapy. It all started about 18 years ago when I had two little kiddos running around the house in diapers and spent my days as a stay-at-home mom. I soon discovered that I needed something more interesting than sorting laundry to keep me going. That's when I discovered the joy of quilting. Now, years down the road, I've added another kiddo to the mix. We've said goodbye to diapers and hello to driver's licenses and college (yikes!), and I have many quilts behind me. I now have a studio in my basement with a long-arm machine where I keep myself busy quilting for others and for myself, too, when I get the time. I hope you enjoy looking at what I've been working on!
