Below are some photos of a customer's quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for them. It is their own original design. I love this quilt, there's so much going on with it and doing the custom quilting gave me a chance to really put a lot of quilting into it to compliment the applique work. It certainly has that WOW factor to it!

Below are some photos of a customer's quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for her. She made it with an traditional triple Irish chain pattern. I freehand quilted the border and then did a flower motif in the black squares and then cross-hatched the chain areas. That's a lot of cross-hatching. :) But I like how it turned out. And I always like black quilts, they always make a dramatic pop with color.
I'm behind in posting photos, so I'll get a little caught up now. Here are some pics of a customer's quilt that I recently finished quilting for her. I like the subtle colors in this one and stars are always a good choice in a quilt. I used an all-over quilting design of feathers to compliment it.

I entered my "More Than Friends" quilt in the Hot Springs Area Quilt Guild's biannual show this weekend and won the Best of Show award for it (it also won First Place in it's category). I was very pleased and honored. :) My wife, Melissa, also won a First Place ribbon for her "Dragonfly Dance" wall hanging in the category that she entered. The other quilt that I entered, "Midnight Garden", took an Honorable Mention ribbon as well. We spent the day there at the show looking at all of the great quilts and shopping the vendors. A fun day!

Here are some pic's of a customer's bulls eye quilt that I recently finished quilting for her. I like doing these style of quilts as they have a lot of texture with the raw edges of the bulls eye circles. I'm thinking that I want to make one of these for myself, just got to find some time to do it.

Below are some photos of a customer's quilt that I recently finished custom quilting for her. It's pretty large at 94" x 110", and I free-handed all the quilting in it. Her borders are beautifully done needle-turned applique, and she said that she designed the borders to fit her quilt from various ideas she saw on the internet. I think it turned out to be a beautiful quilt.

Below are some photos of a customer's quilt that I recently finished quilting for her. She made the quilt top primarily with fabrics by designer French General (which is my personal favorite). I have a lot of these same fabrics in my own collection, I need to get busy and do something of my own with them. The quilting pattern that she picked out for me to use on it is called "Moulin Rouge", I like it a lot.
