Block of the Month Quilt and more


I quilted Pat's Block of the Month Quilt '09. This quilt is form batiks with pieced and machine embroidered blocks. The quilting in pink thread shows off very nicely in the borders.

Close up of some of the blocks.



Muslin backing.

Backing with the "Curly Q" panto.

Sandy pieced the red and white Day and Night quilt.

We decided on the panto called "Curlz" in a tan colored thread.

Red and white borders.

Backing.

This is Linda's very first quilt. She used her son's school uniforms and made a quilt for him.

"Stars" panto and a close up of the blocks made from the school uniforms.


I changed the quilts behind my longarm. I always enjoy looking at my quilts. I know I am only making fast and easy quilts and nothing like the beautiful and complex quilts I quilt for customers...but I LOVE my quilts. My kids always tease me and say I am making "cutting corner quilts".

Happy Quilting!

Millie, I love your quilts! But then - mine are not ornately wonderful either. I'm just not there yet, but I do enjoy looking at other people's beautiful quilts, and your quilting always add such depth to those ladies' work!

Millie..I think YOUR own Quilts are fabulous!

I love looking at ALL the quilts and your lovely quilting motifs..very nice.

I'm in the midst of finishing up a quilt for a family member...I usually do free motion but MIGHT...try hand quilting this one...or stitch in the ditch around the large squares.

I'll post later on my craft blog.

Happy Quilting!

What a great post! That sampler quilt is one of the prettiest I've ever seen. I mean it. And I also love looking at my quilts. Isn't it a great thing that just looking at them makes us happy??

Your quilts are amazing! That BOM quilt reminds me of the Sylvia Bridal Sampler.

I love the quilts that your customers do but what truly complements them is your quilting wish i was closer i would love to have at least one of my works done but i don't think i do good enough work for that & i only do basic stitch in the ditch or diagonal stitching, your quilts are really nice as well so nice to see when your working

Hi Millie, my naam is Linda en ek woon in Suid-Afrika. Neem aan jy praat darem Afrikaans veral as jy in die Kaap groot geword het en jou familie nog daar woon. Jou masjienkwiltwerk is pragtig. Ek is 'n handkwilter maar sou dit nogal geniet het as ons 'n langarmkwilter van jou formaat kon he hier waar ek woon. Ek is op die oomblik besig om my Dear Jane te kwilt en is so op die laaste stadium' kan nie wag om klaar te kry nie. Groete uit Suid-Afrika!
