Below are some photos of a customer's quilt that I finished custom quilting for her today. It's 98" x 98", so is a large quilt. The triangular pieces on the white area are actually made like a pocket, so the top has a 3-dimensional look to it. I did a lot of different types of quilting on this, I feel like I threw everything at it but the kitchen sink. :) But I feel it was worth it, I think it turned out really nice looking.

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.
