My First Pantograph

Ok, when you look at my set up, don't laugh. :). I have a relatively small quilting room (works for me though) and didn't want to move my machine to give pantos a try.... So what is a girl to do, take a laser to the front.
This is a quilt top that a special little friend talked her mommy into buying while we were all at the 600 mile yard sale. She wants her house to be filled with quilts. So, that's where I come in. :)
I thought pantos where going to be hard and I have put them off for nearly a year. Now I know this is a simple pattern, but I think it's pretty good for a beginner. What do you think?

Friday's Project - 2-1/2" Squares

One of my favorite baby quilts is made from 2-1/2" squares. Now just to clarify, I'm not cutting and sewing all these little squares. I use strips 2-1/2" wide by width of fabric. See five strips together, then cut these into 2-1/2" strips. Makes for a quick, easy and beautiful quilt top.

Can I get a Roll Tide Baby Quilt?

Just took another quilt off the frame. This is a customer quilt. I outlined the appliqué pieces and stipples in other areas.

When working on a customer quilt, we talk about what type quilting they might want and what I'm comfortable doing. I want to make sure that my quilting adds to their quilt top. I don't want my quilting to over shadow their hard work.
Hope she likes it!

Baby Colton's Quilt is Finished

I know this is silly and simple but I am just so excited to have the yoyo off my frame and something else finished. :)
This is a customer quilt and luckily for me, the patchwork is in the fabric. I just had to quilt the layers together.
Now to work on another customer quilt and my very own double wedding ring.

Empty Quilting Frame

Awe! So excited that my frame is empty. Why? That means I have finished securing the yoyo quilt to the backing. Now to trim down, hem and secure the final edges. :)
I have two cute baby quilts waiting to be quilted and then back to our double wedding ring.
