As those of you who have blogs know, blogging takes time. I know that is why I haven’t gotten around to posting pictures of customer quilts I have worked on in the last month. I will try to share a lot of pictures in this post and write just enough for you to get the info on these quilts. I have to tell you that I have not snuck any surprises into any of these quilts. I think my mind’s battle with itself scared me from adding any more surprises into other people’s quilts. Here goes…
First off is Cindi’s quilt for her niece. I love her color choices! And, I was so happy to finally get to use some pink thread! She wanted the baby’s name quilted into the quilt, so we did that with a darker color.
Next is Nancy’s quilt – her colors are soothing and go together so well. Nancy gave me free range, so I decided to quilt feathers all over in the background white and make tulip petals in the log cabin blocks with a matching thread.
Marianne made a quilt using jelly rolls. She wanted a simple swirl with the color names quilted into the middle of the colors. I love how she made an otherwise simple jelly roll quilt look like it was a lot of work – I imagine it was!
This next one is Leslie’s first quilt. Can you believe it? I thought she did an awesome job of piecing all those little squares together and getting them to match up. I have to admit that while quilting this quilt, I fell in love the with colors and have decided that I MUST make a black and rust quilt for myself (add it to the list).
And, here is Charlotte’s quilt for her grandson. The critters are made with minky fabric, so they are soft and enticing for a baby. We decided to just stitch in the ditch around the pinwheels and cornerstone blocks, echo around the animals, and quilt swirls to look like blowing wind near the pinwheels.
Do you have a favorite from any of these?

I love the minky quilt! The quilting is perfect for the design and the fun textures will be thoroughly enjoyed by the little one,
