2 more quilts!

Here is a close up of a leaf and flower overall pattern that I quilted this last week.
Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of the whole quilt. They are Christmas presents for a customer so not showing all of it is probably the safest idea!! This is white thread on a white background fabric.

This next quilt is a overall pattern I call Mod Curls. I like this silver thread on the black fabrics and the pinks and whites also have the quilting "retreat" to more of a background. It changes to more of a texture in that section of the quilt.

Thought it would be nice to show the close ups. The quilts will be such treasured gifts for my customer!

So pretty!

This quilt is hand embroidered and is a holiday quilt, breathtaking isn't it?

"over the river and through the woods...", the stitches are perfect and so are the points

I love the buildings in this panel

Wonderful job, Alison. It is lovely. It was quilted with a loop and swirl stitch.

A Thirties Fabric Delight

Kathy made this adorable quilt with thirties reproduction fabrics. Her applique is just exquisite. It was quilted with a leaf and ribbon pattern. Around the center was outline stitched with some pebbling in the center of the Dresden plate. Just wonderful!

A quilt for Heidi

A quilt, that was commissioned for teen whose hockey team won a state championship, is pictured above. This quilt has jersey's from his early days. I had never made one and here is the results. I am pleased with it. It is very warm indeed.
