Here's a couple of pics of a baby quilt that I finished quilting for a customer today. She wanted a simple look to it and asked me to do straight lines in the borders and diagonal cross-hatching in the center. This is actually some of the most difficult type of quilting to do since the cross-hatching requires that an acrylic ruler be used to guide the machine in making the straight lines which requires constant repositioning of the ruler, working with piecing that may not be square, etc. But it's done!

Below are some pictures of a customer's quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for her. One of the local quilt guilds that I'm a member of is a doing this quilt as a block-of-the-month from the book "Farm Girl Vintage". This member has been working ahead of the rest so she's already finished her quilt top. I like quilting sampler type quilts like this, it gives me the opportunity to treat each block differently in the quilting.

Below are a couple of pics of a customer's baby quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for her. I did it all freehand, which is how I like to quilt when doing custom.

Below are some photos of a customer's quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for her. I did all the quilting freehand using 6 different colors of thread. Was nice to get to play with snow for a while, given how hot it is outside.

Below are some pics of a quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for a customer. In piecing the top she used a pattern called "Granny's Stars" by Nancy Mahoney, but altered that by adding an applique border that differed from the original pattern. She used 1930's reproduction prints for the fabrics, and it measures 96" x 116".

A customer brought me a vintage quilt top to quilt that someone in her family had made years ago using the Sunbonnet Sue block pattern. I custom quilted it for her and then bound it. Sunny looking quilt.
