Peek at Customer Quilts

I've been busy with taking 3 days with Gwen, pure bliss for me!  But in the meantime, I've got a few quilts finished and shipped back to their rightful owners for binding and labels.

I could quilt feathers all day long......


Love all the fabrics in this piece, this quilter has an amazing sense of color and value.  Fabulous quilts to work on from MH.


This was a kit from days gone by, and has been finished by a friend of the appliquer.  She is going to be very excited to see this finished and on her bed.



Keeping it simple on the borders, piano key stitch lines, allows the sashing and appliqued blocks to be the star of the show.


She wanted the applique outlined and a little stitching on the leaves and the lighter pink petals.  Feathers in the border are going in all directions so no matter which way the quilt goes on the bed, it will all be ok.  Quilt is square.



I thought I'd end this post with a photo of great seams in a quilt back. As a longarm quilter, I see all kinds of backs. I hope that you make your seams at least 1/2" and press them open. This distributes the seam allowance and keeps you from having a ridge on the back of your quilt. A little Best Press goes a long ways on a back seam. My PSA for today!

 
 
Hope you got to stitch a little over the weekend!  Check back for some exciting news next week.
