LOTS of quilting going on here!

Several customers are coming to pick up their quilts today, so I get to show you pics!  Now, it won't ruin the surprise! 

 This is the close-up of Customer T's quilt.  It is called Fire Escape.  She wanted a large allover, so she got a Petunia Pantograph.
 This is a pic of the whole quilt.  These colors are so bright and cheery.

 This is a close-up of Customer R's Quilt.  Quilt is a gift for a sister-in-law who is going through a rough time.  This allover design is called Paisley Simple, and is a personal favorite of mine.

Here, we have the whole quilt.  This fabric line is Old Primrose Inn by Blackbird Designs.  She bought the fabric from us a few months ago.  I just love this fabric line.  I have made a Kim Diehl with this line and I just need to make the outside four cornerstone blocks and it will be a flimsie!  :)


This is a close-up of Customer T's second quilt.  It is a HUGE drunkard's path quilt made with 30s reproductions.  We scaled the baptist fan larger than the blocks for two reasons.  The first being that if we had tried to scale it to the exact size of the row, it would not have matched evenly--no matter how good the piecing or quilting were done.  Secondly, the smaller scale would have drawn your eye away from the piecing and focused on the quilting, making the quilt seem 'busy'.

Did I mention that this quilt was HUGE??  We had to lay it out on the dining room table just to get a pic of this much!  :)  Customer T made this for someone at work.  Yes, this lady works around 60 hours a week and still finds time to quilt.  She never says "NO" when someone asks her to make them a quilt.  She is a true gem! 

Well, I'm off for another day in the longarm studio,  Hopefully, the fellas are tearing out my laundry room floor today and getting it ready for tile.  If not, I'm not sure they are going to want to spend the evening with me tonight!  :)

Have a blessed day!
