I am getting in the Christmas spirit after doing custom quilting on this precious applique quilt. The customer used a kit and her applique was perfectly done. What fun to add my quilting to this project!
Being a Cornhusker football fan I really enjoyed quilting this for my customer. Some days work is just plain fun!
These blocks from the Mommy and Me quilt a customer recently brought to me for some custom quilting.
One of my customers brought me this lovely quilt with an Air Force theme which she intends to use as a Quilt of Valor. I think any active duty person or veteran would be thrilled and honored to receive this quilt in appreciation of their sacrifice and service to our country. God bless the recipient and God bless America.
This is the quilt that came off the longarm frame this morning. My customer wanted some extra loft in this quilt so I used wool batting. I love the definition this batting provides.
I love applique but I have not mastered the technique so when I found this top at an estate sale I just had to buy it. I paid $5.00 for this gem and could hardly wait to gt it home and on the frame. What fun it was to do some custom work on it, bind it, and hang it in my studio.
Modern quilts are fun to make because they are generally basic designs and often contain significant blank space. These quilts are fun to work on for a longarm quilter because they demand an interesting quilting design. The pictured quilt was inspired by a charm pack that a customer had given me for my birthday. I wanted to make a graduation quilt for my grandaughter. She is an amazing girl so I chose a quilting design that looked like a maze to add interest to the white fabric between the chevrons. The quilt won a blue ribbon at the Omaha Quilters' Guild annual show in the modern quilt category. That's always fun.
