Razorback Hog Quilt

I'm guessing that someone went to college in Arkansas. An Arkasian (what do you call someone from Arkansas?) or an alumni of the University of Arkansas would love this quilt. It was fun and easy to quilt.


Black glide thread. Polyester batting. Loopy loops.

Hearts

This customer is working ahead. I'm SURE her valentine quilt will be bound and up by Valentine's Day 2011.

This is a neat heart quilt. I quilted it with a pantograph of hearts and flowers designed by Patricia Ritter.Isn't it a romantic panto?
I'd love to quilt it on one of my own quilts.
My customer found the pattern on-line here. You, too, could have a quilt in time for Valentine's day if you start cutting....today.
white Isacord thread, 80/20 batting

Month Sampler

Another Edge to Edge pantograph. Leaf Flurries. Mother Goose colored thread.


My husband was sweet and hung this up by himself; I asked him to hang it and then expected him to ask for help. It is a little difficult to do with just one person. He did great; it was just upside down. So it it looks a little odd it's because the loose edge is on the top. :)

Peacock

My customer finished the embroidery years ago and is now trying to finish her old projects.

Close-up of the embroidery.
I love the texture created by the all-over feather.

Cream thread shows the quilting very nicely.

Graduation gift


Simple meander. What a great quilt to have on your bed in the dorm. Simple but fun.

One-patch Quilt

I experimented with many of my computer patterns to see how they sewed out. Then did a variety of crosshatch sizes in the alternate busy fabric blocks. I'd really like to do one of these for myself.

This is a charity quilt that was put together in our guild. I brought home the top, back and batting and Monday I will give them back the quilted quilt then someone else will do the binding. It works out great. I'll pick up another one that is ready to quilt and so on....

Disappearing 4-patch

I designed and donated the fabric and my friends sewed this top together for charity. Here it is before it is sewn completely. It was large 4-patches that are then cut across like this tutorial shows. (the sizes are different though.)
Since I needed to try out a new pattern on the long arm I tried it out here. First it was recommended that it is basted with water soluble thread; then quilted. Here you can see where I got to play before doing the fans.
Before washing, with both of the quilting completed; basting and baptist fan.
Here it is after washing:
I liked the way it turned out but everything did not line up exactly. Handing a customer a quilt with the basting still in would be difficult. Washing a customer's quilt is not something I would do though. Basically the quilt has to be quilted twice! So it would take a long time and cost more than a different edge to edge.

Triangle Madness

I left this large so you can click on it and enlarge it.
I didn't crop it 'cause my crop-man is busy...may crop it later.
This is what I've been working on since early February. It is finished. Labeled. Bound.
Quilted with Signature cotton; Mother Goose (a light brown)
80/20 batting

Monster Stack and Whack

This was made for a brand new grandson. (Not mine but someone's) I imagine it will be loved for years.
This was such a fun quilt to stitch on. I used a Primary color variegated Isacord thread on top and black so-fine on the bottom. Free-motion spirals with hooks.

The back had the original fabric covered with dragons. It looks like it was a fun fabric to do this technique with.

Nancy's Trees

This is such a cheerful quilt and will be enjoyed for years It is a small quilt; only 28 X 28 inches so it didn't take long to custom quilt it.
I love doing holly leaves.

tablecloth

I LOVE blue and yellow! Isn't this beautiful?
Yellow King tut on top. I think this looks kind of like popcorn so thought it was perfect for this quilt since she is planning on using it as a tablecloth.

and the popcorn.
