June 3/3

Beautiful sampler here. Lots of traditional quilt blocks and lovely applique. I added edge-to-edge quilting to help finish it off. So sweet!

Lorna's Nursery Rhymes

SUCH a cute quilt design here! Each block was an embroidered nursery rhyme theme. I had so much fun working my way through my childhood favorites! Exquisite stitching, color sections, and layout made this one a dream to quilt. It didn't need much. I love how it turned out!

Lorna's Snowmen

I've gotten to work on this quilt a couple times in the past (here and here). This one had a simpler layout, but was no less awesome! I put some windy swirls in the outer border, and just did some tacking down throughout the body of the quilt. Bring on the snow!

Lorna's Animals

Lorna is better at embellishment than anyone I know. Almost every quilt I've worked on with her has had some kind of bell or whistle. This adorable quilt featured furry fabrics, mesh that made it appear as though animals were underwater, felts, and LOTS of decorative stitches! I just did some tacking down in the sashings and outlining in the blocks. This quilt didn't need much quilting. It speaks for itself!

Darlene's Mom's set

This quilt and tablerunner came from the mother of my client, Darlene. She wanted something simple and flowing, in a blue thread. So I went to town with a good ole stipple. I also attached the binding to the front of the quilt, so it was ready for her to finish by hand when she got it back. It's a large quilt, so it will be nice that she won't have to wrestle it through her sewing machine to affix the binding.

Jennifer 3/3

Another beauty from Jennifer. Jennifer told me she likes feathers (so do I!), so I put 'em to work! Feathers with a string of pearls in the border. Feather wreaths in the blocks. Some orange peel and ribbon candy sprinkled around, and finished off by attaching her binding to the quilt front. I think I love it!
