Below are some photos of a customer's quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for her. I think it turned out really nice looking, I like all the star blocks in the quilt and the backing really shows the quilting nicely.

Here are some photos of a quilt that I just finished quilting for a customer this evening. Like the previous one, this one was pieced by a now deceased member of one of the quilt guilds that I'm in. Her friend in the guild acquired the top and brought it to me to quilt for her. It really shows how a simple pattern can make a beautiful quilt with the choice of the right fabrics.

Below are some photos of a quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for a customer. The quilt top was made by a member of one of the quilt guilds that I'm in, and she passed away a couple of years ago. A friend of hers in the guild acquired the quilt top and brought it to me to be quilted. I'm glad it's finally quilted now, I'm sure she would be, too.

Below are some photos of a vintage quilt that I recently repaired and requilted. It belongs to my wife's cousin's husband and was made by his grandmother (deceased). It's the only thing he has that belonged to his grandmother, and it was in REALLY bad shape when we got it. It had a bright orange backing that had seen better days, but more importantly there were about 80 places on the quilt top that required repairs because the stitching had come undone. In one of the dresses, one particular fabric was in shreds, so we replaced that fabric. The batting inside the quilt had disintegrated into pieces as well. So we deconstructed the quilt to remove the old backing and batting, repaired the top, then requilted it with new batting and backing, and rebound it. It should last for many more generations now.
