Here are some photos of a quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for a customer. If it looks familiar, it's because it is - she and her friend both made a quilt based on this pattern at the same time, so this is the second one I've done of these. The first one was a couple of weeks ago and hers was in a darker blue than this one (see earlier post below). The quilt pattern is called "Conway Album" and was designed by Irma Gail Hatcher. I changed the quilting up on this one a bit from the one I did a couple of weeks ago, but some of the quilting design elements are the same. As with all of my custom work, this is all hand guided (no computer), so every stitch you see is me doing the quilting, not a computer. I think the customer has a beautiful heirloom quilt now. Oh, and there's a third friend who did it with them as well, so I have another one coming to do - hers is in a red colorway. Looking forward to seeing it!

This is a quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for a customer. She made it from a pattern called "Conway Album" by Irma Gail Hatcher. I did all of the quilting freehand and had fun with it. The dimensional flowers are done with a ruching technique as well as trapunto. All in all, a beautiful quilt that's now a family heirloom.










Here are some pics of a customer's quilt that I finished custom quilting for her a while back. It's quite large at 120" x 120", so is the largest quilt that I've ever quilted for someone. I liked having all of those open white spaces to really show off some nice quilting in.








Here's a small log cabin block wall hanging that I finished quilting for a customer. I just did an all-over pattern of feathers on it, which I think compliments it nicely.




I love this customer's quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for them. It has a scrappy primitive kind of look. I think the quilting that I did works well on it.

Here are some photos of a customer's quilt that I recently finished quilting for them.   The borders were done custom and then I did an all-over design in the center over all of the triangles.  The quilt design is called a "Thousand Pyramids" quilt.  I got curious so I counted them all and there are 1,680!  And...the quilter said that she made them all from scraps and didn't repeat any of them in the quilt.  And I looked, but never saw any repeats, either!   She frequently worked on this at several of our guild sewing events, and I gave her some scraps for it.  And I happened to spot a few of those when I was quilting it.  Really nice looking quilt!

Here are some photos of a customer's quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for them today. It's a traditional double wedding ring pattern with added borders. The soft gold and gray tones that she used to piece it made a really nice color scheme. She gave me free reign to do whatever I wanted to on it, so went to town on it. :D I think it turned out really nice looking, and the back really shows the quilting nicely, so could even be used as a two sided quilt.
