Here are some pics of a customer's quilt that I recently finished quilting for her. She made the quilt for her grandson who will be starting at Ohio State University this year. She appliqued an appropriate buckeye at the lower right of the O. I custom quilted it using different techniques for the red, gray, and white areas to give it a dimensional look, and then did a separate design for the borders as well. Go Buckeyes!

Below are some pics of a customer's quilt that I recently finished quilting for her. It's based on a pattern called "In Full Bloom" by McKenna Ryan which uses fused applique. It is, of course, custom quilted and essentially was an exercise in thread painting. I used 13 different colors of thread in quilting it, so was changing threads quite often as I worked my way down the quilt. The photos of the back show the density of the quilting better. I think it turned out very nice, hope she likes it, too!

Here are some pics of a customer's quilt that I recently finished quilting for her. I like the theme of this quilt and the messages that it conveys: "Live Gently Upon the Earth", "Live in the Sunlight", and "Sow Seeds of Kindness".

Below are some pics of a customer's quilt that I recently finished quilting for her. I really like how she made the backing reversible so that the back is just as interesting as the front - it's like getting two quilts in one.

Below are some pics of a customer's quilt that I recently finished quilting for her. Very colorful, and I used a variegated color thread which really pops on the black border.

Below are pics of a couple of children's quilts that I recently finished custom quilting for a customer. In each quilt there are 4 blocks that were made by the customer's mother by hand-embroidering and appliqueing them from traced drawings of her grand-children's art work from their childhood days. The customer is going to gift these quilts to her twin grand-children. Very unique and personalized quilts.

Below are some pics of a customer's quilt that I finished quilting for her today. It's a Christmas themed quilt and I like how she did the piecing on the backing as well. I did a feather pattern in the border and a separate design inside that. I think it turned out really nice looking.
