Quilting In Progress...

There is just something so soothing about a blue quilt (I'm not really a blue fan).  
This quilt just makes me smile.
Happy Quilting!

Negative of quilting for the public....

Yep there is one... sometimes you have to work on an Auburn Quilt!  
The good news, just like any quilt there is a story behind this one and a young man waiting to love it.
This quilt was made by his mom years ago but she passed away before she was able to finish it.
A lady, Loretta, that goes to church with him found out about it and she finished the top.  Now I have the honors of quilting it for him.
Auburn and all, I love it.

Quilting In Progress.....

My favorite quilts, as I have said many times, are memory quilts.  So many memories, tears and love go into these.

These two quilts belong to a sweet customer.  She recently lost her husband and wanted to give her boys something to treasure from their father.
You can see the fabrics are primarily the same in both both the are very different.
Because she chose different patterns I felt they deserved different quilting designs.
I am sure both the boys will realize how special these are and will treasure them for years to come.

As these were being quilted, I also worked on getting some Tshirts ready for quilting.  Nothing like a good process and assembly line.
These three are cut and boxed (using very good line clearance so we don't have any mix ups).  These are in the process of being cut.
Once they are all cut out I will start the stabilizing process and layout.  These are all being made based on a new class that I recently watched.  I can't wait to see how they turn out.
Let's GO! quilting!

Quilting In Progress.... Double Dipping

So this isn't something I get to do often but I try when I can.  Two quilts loaded at the same time with two different designs.
Saves a little time on loading and in this case, saved some dollars for the customer.  I was able to use less batting with not as much waste.  
Love it!  Gotta get busy again!

Quilting In Progress...

Just finished this beauty...
And check out the backing...
Yep, it's minky.  I just love quilts with a minky or flannel back.  The quilting shows up beautifully and they are so warm and cuddly.

Quilting in Progress...

I say all the time that quilting to me is about memories.  It is such a blessing to be a part of preserving someone else's memories.

This little beauty is started using a child's sheet with coordinating borders framing it out.  I can only imagine a sweet little girl so excited that she got new little mermaid sheets for her bed.  Now she will have that memory as well as the love put into this quilt forever.  ;)
When looking for a quilt design I found this pattern called "Under the Sea".  Sounds perfect doesn't it.
I am so blessed that so many people trust me with their treasures.
Happy quilting!

Quilting In Progress...

Just finished this beautiful quilt from a customer, Sherry Nin!
She does very detailed work and always does a fantastic job!  It is a pleasure to quilt for her.

Quilting In Progress...

There is just something about a baby quilt that I love.  This customer quilt is adorable. 

The customer appliqu├ęs the letters and the little turtles.  :). Just precious.
Now let's check out the back.
Now onto the next one.

Quilting In Progress....

Oh I'm back in my happy place.  The holidays were wonderful but got me a little behind, then work for me further behind.  Now here I am, in my quilt room and working on this beautiful customer quilt.
Love love love it...

Quilting In Progress...

So I think "Thelma" was upset that I took time off for the holidays and allowed me to complete one row on a quilt before she broke.  Thankful we completed the row and it didn't break in the middle.

So after a week more of downtime, Thelma and I are both happy quilters.
Can you see the detail of the needle and thread?  I love it.
This is a beautiful customer quilt that is fuzzy cut and had sewing notions in all the blocks.  
I love the fuzzy cut blocks and wish I had the patience to do some.
