Here are some pics of a quilt that I recently finished custom quilting. It will be the 2018 raffle quilt for the Saline County Quilters Guild, which I am a member of. Several of the members made the quilt blocks and then put the top together, and then I did the quilting of it. It measures 100" x 100", so is quite large. I think it's a really nice looking quilt. So if YOU like it, too, the YOU could win this! If you're interested then send me a private message to let me know and I'll let you know when the raffle tickets go on sale. The drawing for it will be held at the annual Saline County Old Fashioned Day which will be held on October 13, 2018. Need not be present to win!

Now that Fall is here (at least by the calendar), here's a quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for a customer. I like the colors in this, and the quilting actually shows up better on the backside since the fabrics in the front are kind of busy. I need to get out my Fall stuff and start decorating for the season.

Ready for Christmas? Below are some photos of a customer's quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for her. The blocks are made in a traditional log cabin pattern. There are some some large open spaces that gave me some space to do some nice looking feather motifs. I like how it turned out.

A customer brought me this baby quilt to do the quilting of it for her. She made the quilt from her daughter's wedding dress. It's to be a baby quilt for her grandchild that is to be born next week. The 'C' is for their family surname. Since this is going to be a family heirloom, I wanted to knock it out of the park with the quilting, which I did all freehand. I've never quilted on satin before (both top and bottom), so was a bit nervous about how it was going to work out. But it went just fine, I like how it turned out.

Here are some photos of a customer's quilt that I recently finished quilting for her. She used a traditional bow-tie block to make the top, so all of the blocks are made the same way but the arrangement of them creates a different pattern. Very pretty quilt that she made for a 6 year old boy.

Below are some photos of a customer's quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for her. It has an interesting story. She made the pink petals of the flowers from a dress that her mother had made for her when she was a little girl. Her mother is elderly now so she's going to surprise her with the quilt next week. I like a feel good story. :)
