No subtle thread for this quilt!  Bright varigated thread paints a star and loop pattern that was perfect for this T shirt quilt.  What a great way to preserve high school memories!

When this quilt was brought to me it was not quilted but had already been bound so the challenge for me was to load and quilt between the binding.  The tropical leave design was perfect for the bright vivid batik fabrics but more importantly it filled the quilting space side to side and top to bottom with out leaving unquilted space on the edges.  Unless you knew otherwise, you couldn’t tell that the binding was put on prior to the quilting,

When I saw this quilt I knew I had seen the perfect quilting design.  I searched high and low on the internet until I found this bottle and bottle cap pantograph; excellent for the coca cola fabrics on both sides of the quilt.

Navy blues, Denim Blues and Baby Blues come together on this snow white quilt that is super king sized!  The quilting design is a dove with an olive branch and it transformed the back of the quilt from plain to fabulous!   She was so excited when she picked it up, she rushed home washed the quilt and had it on her bed the same day.  (see below)

This is the first cancer quilt that I have been commissioned to do as I usually make my cancer quilts as I see a need.  This quilt is for a lady in Pennsylvania who is starting her cancer treatments and is gifted to her by her loving daughter in law.  The minky backing is cuddly, the batting is warm, and the scrappy top has plenty of visual interest; perfect for a treatment quilt.  When she told me she liked owls, I knew this cheerful owl pattern was perfect!

This quilt was EPIC!  At 120 inches wide the bargello pattern was huge and I could only photograph it in halves!  The backing was a cotton sateen so it had a luscious sheen that just shimmered in the light; add a shiny turquoise thread and the effect is magical.   The quilting pattern is dense at 750,000 stitches but well worth it.

If I had my way the green side of the quilt would be the front.  Look at how the animal quilting design pops in the navy blue thread.  The print fabric was a great inspiration in picking the quilting design and now the quilt is as delightful on the back as it is on the front!
