I don't do many custom quilts anymore. I can't actually decide if that is a good thing or a bad thing lol.
Up first, this bear quilt from Margaret.
I kept the quilting simple with piano keys in the border and a stipple in all the background.
For the bear paw sections, I love this.
I was totally stuck with what to do in the empty blocks and hubby came up with the idea of doing them the same as the paw blocks.
Love how it turned out.
Next, this lovely quilt by Connie.
What I love the most about this is Connie wanted the quilt quilted with orange thread; so fantastic! I did clouds in the sunset sections
and a water stitch in the water.
Lastly, this stunner by Joyce.
Joyce took a Prismatic Star quilt and increased it to 107x107.
I ditched the entire star.
It took about 6hrs.
I went back and forth so many times over what to do in the background. I finally decided on a stipple. I wanted the center star to be the focal point; any elaborate quilting would take away from that.
I darkened the pic so you can see the quilting better.
The inner border, I did a ribbon stitched and ditched all the diamonds.
The diamonds just popped; so good!
The next border was big; 9.5 inches wide.
I quilted and ripped, quilting and ripped. That took 2 days when suddenly an idea came to me and I went with it.
The large diamonds I did a ribbon stitch and a meander around them.
All the black borders were left unquilted.
Check out the backing.
Those aren't pleats, just wrinkles.
One last look,
This might be one of my top favourite quilts I have done ever.
