Below are some pics of a customer's quilt that I finished quilting for her this afternoon. It's custom quilted and measures 90" x 90". This one took a while, I think about 5 days. I really like looking at the back of it where you can see the texture of the quilting better. Hope she likes it!

Here's a few pics of a quilt that I finished quilting for a customer today. She made the top using Dresden plate quarter blocks, and using a 3 Sisters line of fabric called "Martinique". It took me about a week of quilting from start to finish, and there's a lot of thread in it. The customer did a really nice job of making the top for this, so I enjoyed finishing it off by doing the quilting for her. It measures 66" x 66" and all those Dresden blocks were hand appliqued by her.

Below are a couple of pics of a quilt that I finished making today for myself. I completed the top back in 2011, and since I'm pretty close to being caught up on customer work I decided to go ahead and quilt it this weekend. The pattern is called "Labyrinth" and is by Debbie Maddy of Calico Carriage Quilt Designs. She came to our quilt guild back in 2011 to teach a workshop on the pattern. After I finished the top back in 2011, it just went to the pile of uncompleted quilts. Until now. Glad to have this one done and on the bed now!

The Arkansas Crossroads Quilt

Here's a couple of pics of a quilt that I finished making today.  I made it using an old traditional block pattern called "Arkansas Crossroads".  I used Civil War reproduction fabrics in blacks, browns, reds, and creams, and then quilted it on my longarm quilting machine.  It measures 72" x 82".  I like using black fabrics in a quilt, it has a dramatic impact and gives it a wow factor.

From the longarm today....

Below are pics of a customer's quilt that I finished quilting for her today. It measures 47" x 62" and is all applique except for the borders. I enjoy quilting for her because her applique work is always superbly done.

Irises mean Spring is coming...

I finished quilting this customer's quilt top this evening. I think it turned out really nice looking. It measures 72" x 88", and made out of batik fabrics with the irises appliqued on.

On the longarm today....

Here's a pic of what I'm quilting on this morning. A customer made the top and I'm quilting it for her. The pattern is called a Bull's Eye quilt and has raw edge circles on it so that it frays up nicely after being washed. I'm just doing a meander quilting on the background, and then a circular meander on the circles themselves. I really like the "cabin" look of these style quilts, I need to make one for myself.
