I've quilted some fun and amazing custom quilts lately.
Time for a little show and tell!
Audrey did this maple quilt.
I did a continuous curve in the light triangles,
I stippled around the maple leaves.
Cheryl from Country Quilts sent these cute quilts.
Cheryl wanted the quilting kept simple; mostly stippling and a bit of outlining. Cheryl blogged about this quilt here.
I love the cat!
Bonnie's lovely Asian fan quilt.
More stippling and I quilted lines on the fans.
Margaret made this stunning applique quilt. I quilted a tight stipple around the applique and did piano keys in the border.
Joyce made this stunning crane quilt.
I water-stitched around all the cranes in black thread and again using gold in the four patches and triangles. The border I did piano keys.
Speaking of stunning, Marie was invited to a wedding and she created this quilt from the wedding invitation.
I quilted lines and whirls in the wood background to make it look more woody.
I added a few stetson boots as well.
I left the appliques and the lace strips alone.
Lastly, this amazing quilt by Martha. Martha embroidered the wreaths on muslin years ago and decided it was time to finish the quilt.
Because the quilt is made with muslin, it is very hard to see the details.
I did a wreath to compliment the embroidery.
And more feathered wreaths in the borders
Martha has an antique iron bed she is displaying the quilt on. Lovely!
Now it's time to quilt some more!
