Customer Quilt Show

Haven’t posted in quite awhile. Been busy quilting customer quilts, getting a bit of my own pieced, Christmas shopping and decorating, and finally baking. Other posts on my Christmas preparations will follow, but for now, here is a customer quilt show.

First the pantographs.

Carolyn did another lovely Perfect 10 quilt. Camellias Pantograph. I’ve got to use this pattern for the next grandchild quilt. Such a lovely quilt.

Donna finished the Guild mystery quilt and is gifting it this Christmas. That’s a lucky GrandDIL. Wildflower Pantograph. The greens are the color I’d like to see out my window instead of the cold, brown, winter scene.

Barbara made this great patriotic looking quilt. You wouldn’t believe how tiny those little nine patches are. Great job. Patriot Pantograph.

Another Barbara also made a Perfect 10 quilt, only this time it’s feeling like a beautiful, snowy, winter day. Popcorn Pantograph. (Love, love these fabrics Barbara chose.)

This is Vicki’s second quilt using this pattern. Note how the color pallet changes. Lovely. Pretty Paisley Pantograph.

Linda’s quilt is a sweet child’s quilt. She’s going to make the edge wavy. This will be a treasure. Quilting is an all over medium meander.

The rest of the quilts are custom.

Marilyn made an appliqué angel. As usual, her appliqué is flawless. The other quilt is unusual. First time I’ve seen this. It’s titled “Faith, Hope, Love.” The somewhat straight lines allow the applique to really be the star of the show. There is a tiny bit of small curls leading the way to the interior of each figure. That draws your eye to the center where the emphasis should be.

Lynette’s quilt was a challenge. It was so well done and she requested heavy quilting. So I ventured into unknown territory, trying to create wind around the flying geese using feathers, ghost flying geese, stones in the lighthouse, fish, shells, etc.

Oops. I just saw another pantograph in my picture file. Marian also completed the Guild mystery quilt. Hot pink and metallic type fabrics. Great fun.

Thanks to all for letting me quilt your tops.

The next post will be lots of pictures from an awesome fabric postcard class I took.

Thanks for stopping by.

Linda
