Antique and Antique-ish quilts

I loved quilting on this quilt.
The antique fabrics are so rich and colorful
and reminds me of the days I would go to Grandmas and she would let me play in her fabrics.

I didn't know what a blessing that was...



And this one!
Its a great Christmas wall hanging - 



I like this one 
Its antique-ish 
but made of all new fabrics!

This week in Quilting....

Happy Easter!!!

I had some fun in the Quilting Room this week. Even though it was Spring Break and my kids and I took some short trips in the state!


The above one was really neat - it was all these classic fabrics
and she wanted feathers - so I had a lot of fun

Below
This is  Quilt of Valor my Quilting group made
I quilted a Baptist fan - sort of
at the bottom of the fan - there is a swirl!
Too fun.


Another classic quilt
I must have been in Baptist Fan mode ;-)




As always
I am here to quilt for you
Either tops you have made.... 
or if you have an idea I can create a quilt from start to finish

Quilting Snippets

A few little glimpses of the Client Quilts I have been working on:


This one might look familiar - It was one of the Bonnie Hunter Mysteries... I LOVED the color choices!



This one was so fun  I got to free hand like crazy!!


The Cathedral Window part - that was made in the 50's by my clients Grandma - it wasn't finished so the relatives were going to throw it away.... She saved it, and we finished it... then made it bigger so she could display it.



it sure is fun to see the variety of quilts that my clients make - and of course, I want to make them all!!

I LOVE Circles

I made some very fun improv quilt blocks quite a few years ago. The class was presented by Melody Randol in Colorado. 

If you ever have a chance to catch a class from Melody – I totally recommend it – she is fantastic.

The class was held with our guild and it was way before I understood improv or even scrappy quilting – before I had even really heard of scrappy quilting. Her class spoke to me. 

She said just lay the fabric out and lets’ start cutting.
Oh my – I had such fun.   

And then, I put them in a box, and sort of kept working with them as I had time…


Of course I was using some of the Kaffe Fasset fabrics I had found at a quilt shop , way before I even really knew who he was! so that was a real draw - I love those bright colors....

Fast forward a few years - I Finally Pulled the thing back out again and made it into a quilt top.

THEN!!  I quilted Circles ALL over it - I just LOVE this texture!





Circle circles everywhere


Don't you just love how it moves across the quilt?

And the final result!!




Got a quilt you would like circles Quilted on?

Snippets

I just wanted to share a few snippets of the quilts I have quilted this year.

I find that I really like to look back at my blogs to find things 
 so I had better post them more often ;-)

Plus maybe as you are looking at the photos, you might think of a quilt top you have laying around, that you would like this pattern quilted on it.
I can help you with that!


This one is called Paisley - and it looks so great on so many different quilts!






Obviously - this one is called Footballs


And this is a tiny feather - I quilted them to interlock

Stars a Waving

The first one was made in Plaids:

And the second one with Star Prints on the solids
