Chris' Quilt

This is Chris' quilt. It is a quilt made from a quote that is meaningful to her.  The quilt is called Word Play.  She took a class at the quilt shop Stash in Walla Walla.  I quilted an interlocking squares pantograph on it.  Turned out so nice.  She made this quilt for her husband so it kind of gave it a more masculine look to it.

Isn't this cool how she added a red letter in her quote.

The back of this quilt was so cool.  I love the backing fabric she used.  I think it is Ed Hardy print.  Too neat!  Chris, thank you for letting me quilt for you.

Sherbert Pips

Here are two quilts I made from Sherbert Pips by Aneela Hoey for Moda fabrics.  The first one I quilted using a pantograph called hearts and flowers.  It was very girly looking and I love how it turned out.  It is going to be a baby blanket for a friend of ours.

 The back is so cute!  Little girls riding scooters.  I just love it.

Here is my second quilt.  I used a few different fabrics for the borders and decided to practice some of my custom quilting on it. 

Quilted pebbles on it.  The thing about pebbles is you have to practice a lot to make them look nice.  I finally feel like I'm getting the hang of them.  I love all the texture they created.

 I quilted some little figure 8's in the grey border and feathers in the red border.
This pattern came from a free pattern from The Tulip Patch and she was featured on the Moda Bakeshop.  You can visit her blog here.  You can also find her pattern here.  It's called a Ritzy Cracker Quilt.  This is a really cool blog to check out.  She does some fun patterns and they are very easy to follow.  I actually made all the blocks for a big size quilt and just split it in two groups because I wanted baby blanket size.  Worked out great.  It took two charm packs and some fabric.  I love how the custom quilt turned out.  Look at those little doggies in the border. 

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend.  Thanks so much for looking!

Laura's Quilt

This is my very dear cousin Laura's quilt.  She did a great job piecing this one.  It had no bumps at all and laid so nice and flat.  It was like quilting through butter.  Very smooth.  I quilted an allover "Frisky Feathers" on it.  Turned out so cute!  She has been quilting fo rmany years and I wish she would do more.  Her piecing skills are very good. 

Don't you just love this picture of her quilt all folded up?  The fabric was so gorgeous.  It is from a Moda collection called "Hemming House".  Great job Laura!  Thanks for letting me quilt for you.
