Next is Betty’s quilt in tan’s, brown’s, grey and gold’s. Really gorgeous colors. I used a golden yellow thread and Feather Fancy pantograph. The photo doesn’t show the beautiful depth of color because it’s such a dreary day.

Last and largest quilt at king size is Judy’s. She used beautiful fall colored fabrics with a brown border. Pantograph is pretty paisley. A pantograph that is turning out to be popular.

Thanks quilters for letting me quilt your quilts.

Customer’s Turquoise Quilt

Some lucky grandchild of Marian’s is getting this lovely quilt. I kept thinking about the beautiful turquoise waters of the FL Panhandle (at least when I lived in Mobile many years ago).

Pantograph is Star Swirl. Although you can’t tell in the photos, I used a turquoise and green King Tut variegated thread by Superior Threads.

Customer’s Shirt Quilts

Judy recently lost her husband and although she wasn’t a quilter, made two quilts from her husband’s shirts with a friend’s help. One is an Ohio State t-shirt quilt and the other one is a golf shirt quilt. She’s a quilter now!!

I used the pantograph Simplicity on the t-shirt quilt.

Since the golf shirt quilt had plackets and collars, I quilted a freehand overall meander to avoid those areas.

I’m sure these quilts will be a sweet remembrance of Judy’s husband.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks for stopping by and keep on quilting.

Custom Quilting

I have 2 customer quilts to show. One is done in batiks and I used the pantograph Feelin Groovy. Why is it in a post titled “Custom Quilting” you say? Because it is every bit as beautiful as the custom quilted quilt. See for yourself.

Pieced by Marilyn. Quilters Dream wool batting (which quilts like a dream).

The custom quilt in pink and brown has log cabin blocks and some other block along with an appliqué center. I greatly prefer custom quilting for appliqué but the pieced blocks would be great with or without it. So a compromise is to do a freehand overall on the pieced area (meandering hooked feathers in this case) and McTavishing around the appliqué after stitching in the ditch around The applique. The skinny border was SID and the larger border was quilted with hooked feather vine.

Pieced by Lynette. Hobbs 80/20 batting.
