Below are a couple of photos of a customer's quilt that I recently finished quilting for him. The top was made for him by his grandmother back in 1990 but had never been quilted. In a couple of the squares, she embroidered "To Danny, made by Granny Smith 1990". Quilt tops made out of polyester squares like this are rather difficult to quilt because of the very bulky seams and the tendency of the polyester fabric to stretch and shift, so I just did a simple meandering quilting on it so that I could run the machine with one hand while using the other hand to ease the fabric as needed. It's quite a workout physically, but I'm glad I was able to get this quilt finished for him as his grandmother had intended.
