Customer Quilts

I've been doing quite a bit of customer quilting lately, but I haven't had a chance before now to sit down and go through the pictures and show them. But I have some time this morning, so I thought I'd do that now.

 This first quilt belongs to Gail. She blogs over at The Cozy Quilter, and she also showed a picture of this quilt, and also her Great Granny Squares that I did for her, but didn't get a picture of. (Wow, that's really bad grammar and sentence structure). This quilt is from Bonnie Hunter's free patterns, and is Bricks and Stepping Stones. It's quilted with the pantograph Leaf Pile, by Donna Reinarts. The picture below is the backing, pieced with some of Gail's leftover blocks. I've noticed in the past year, or so, that pieced backings like this, or even more intricate, are becoming quite popular.

 This quilt belongs to Maureen. She is a new customer, to me, and I'm very glad to be able to work on her quilt. It is also a Bonnie Hunter pattern, from one of her books. It is quilted with an overall pattern called Square Spiral, designed by Keryn Emmerson. One of the many bonuses of purchasing patterns like this as digital downloads, is the ability to do them up to the size that is in scale with the quilt they are being used for. I have another Square Spiral pantograph, but the scale was too big for the small pieces in this quilt.

 The next 2 quilts belong to Sandra. They are both baby quilts. This one was done with an overall loops and hearts design.

 This one is a panel. Unfortunately, the colours are a bit washed out in this picture, so the details on the panel are hard to see. It's a village scene, and has cars, and the word "vroom" in spots on the panel. The pantograph "Hotwheels" by Dave Hudson, was perfect for this one.

Thanks for looking. I'm going to try and be more consistent in taking pictures, and writing about the quilts that I do, as long as the owners give me permission.

  1. Cathy-my quilt is bound and I am thrilled with the way it turned out. The quilting pattern you chose was perfect for it. I't be bringing it to the next guild meeting for Show and Share.


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.
