A couple of customer quilts

I've been really remiss lately in sharing completed customer quilts. Some of them, I've even missed getting pictures. But I can share a couple here. Maureen brought me this lovely sampler to do.
 I did a light custom on it, with continuous curves in the piecing.
 Here's a close up of the center area. I just noticed that it is upside down. The stars in the center are inside hearts.
 Here's a closer view of the applique corners. The applique was stitched in the ditch and then echoed. This is a lovely quilt. It was a pleasure working on it.

 The other one I have to show right now, is Gail's Nine Patch Mystery, made from a pattern that I designed, from the guild's swap and mystery last year. This is the third one of these I've done. I love how they are all the same pattern, but they all look so different.
This is a closer view of the quilting. I used a pantograph called Fossil by Lorien quilting. I love the borders on Gail's version of this quilt, and the way she put left over nine patches in the corners of the borders.


  1. Lovely quilting, Cathy ! It compliments the quilts! I recommend you to my friends.

  2. Both quilts are so fantastic.

  3. Maureen's sampler is stunning, and the fabrics in Gail's quilt are so lovely and bright - they definitely make the quilt POP! Love the quilting on both of them too.
    Is Gail's quilt made from the pattern you designed? If so, is the pattern available to purchase? I'd love to do it sometime...


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
