Freehand and Ruler Work

 I LOVE this quilt - it was a fun one to quilt as well - 

but the best part - Mixing Ruler work with free hand quilting... It bring the best of both worlds...

Enhancing an Antique Quilt

My Client found these old blocks in her Grandmas trunk . She put them into a top and then was stumped.

The blocks had quite a bit of puffiness and weren't flat - but they were Grandmas - so you really want to use them 

I quilted half feathers in each petal and that really worked in the fullness for us to continue ... and surprisingly - it was pretty flat and square when all was said and done!

I am completely booked for the rest of 2021 - but... I will have appointments for 2022... if your thinking of getting some quilts Quilted!

Diamond Crosshatching

 Got a little Diagonal Crosshatching going on today. This quilt is so cool - my client used all greens and whites - its more white that green at the top and transitions to more green that white at the bottom - Such a Cool Effect!!!

Brown Goose Antique Quilt

 my friend is an EXCELLENT antique quilt finder

She found this beautiful one and said - can you quilt a Cable in the border - and I gulped - Sure!

and then I got about to drawing and practicing and praying that I really could

Here is what I came up with!

I am so excited - I think it turned out so great!!

And then I crosshatched in the blocks. Such a beautiful quilt!

Double Wedding Ring Re-visited

 About a year ago my Son and I headed up to the mountains to take this sweet beauty for it's photo shoot....

and! I am still in love with it!

My friend and her husband are antique finders - and they have the best little shop of things they have found - but! at one auction he went to he found this quilt top and thought of me/

They gave it to me to see what I could do with it - and oh man  did I have fun
We did note that there are Polyester fabrics along the edge - so it seems the center was made in the Olden days, and the border was added later.

I had a great time quilting it - and LOVE how it turned out

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!
