Machine Quilting

I finished two of my own quilts. It was so cloudy when I took the pictures, I will wait for a nice, sunny day and retake the pictures.

I have been very busy quilting customer quilts. This Moda Charm Square quilt was pieced by Carol Ann from Calico Cats and will be displayed next week at the Houston Quilt Show/Festival. I used the pantogragh "Hearts a Flutter" for the quilting.

Cute pink backing with flowers.
Rhonda made this pink and green Basket quilt for her sister which I quilted with "Meandering Dasies".

Small Star cornerstones between the green sashings.
Green backing.
This is Glenda's very first quilt she pieced. She saw the pattern in a magazine and went for it.
Red border. I used the panto "Hyacinth" .
She did an awesome job for a self-taught quilter.
Blue backing.
Happy Quilting until next time!

I quilted two quilts pieced by my friend Sally. This first quilt has different blocks pieced by several quilt shops. The fabric is the new Fall line for Three Sisters by Moda coming out in October. Sally designed the layout herself. The quilt will be displayed at the October Houston Quilt Market.
The border is so interesting.
This batik quilt was a group project. Quilters made half square triangles and shared with each other. This is how Sally turned her triangles into a quilt.
I used the Bubbles panto...I love to quilt circles or swirls.
Batik border.
Scrappy batik backing.
Happy Quilting!
Here's a little reminder: I'm thinking of having a one day giveaway for my Fall quilt on Wednesday. I was too late to enter my blog in the Fall give away.

Maggy, Congratulatations. She said, "I would love to be entered!!! It would make quilting sooo easy!!! I LOVE the Drunkard's Path, Circle, and 2.5 inch dies!!" Please e-mail me with your information by Tuesday. I know you're just going to love the Go as much as I do.
Besides playing around with my Go, the last few weeks I've been working with grey and yellow 2 1/2 inch strips. I made this yellow and grey Log Cabin Quilt for Karen.
This is where I started with the quilt...2.5" strips and a test block from Karen.
The top definitely needs a yellow border.
Quilting is the best part of making a quilt for me...besides picking and cutting the fabric .
Yellow backing.
It is always a good feeling when I am all done with a quilt.
Happy Quilting until next time!
