Joan J's Baby Carriage Quilt

 

 

 

 

This is such a precious baby quilt that has a classic look to it with the machine appliqued carriages in black and pinks. For this one, I used a pale pink thread in So Fine on top and MagnaGlide in the bobbin.

Joan J's Film Strip Baby Quilt

 

 

 

Babies love bright colors and this one is both bright and fun with Dr. Suess' characters. I used a Signature variegated on top and MagnaGlide in the bobbin.

Kira's "Amy Butler Love" squares

 

 

 

Kira asked that I quilt this as I did a previous one for Cindy. I used a block pantograph of Chantilly Lace and then freehanded the sashing. I used Sew Fine in the top and MagnaGlide in the bobbin. Kira loved it!

Virginia's Embroidered Pansies

 

 

 

 

Client Virginia D created this large embroidered quilt and gave me free reign. It was a challenge to both highlight the embroidery and disguise the excess fabric that remained after she pieced this top. I tried some new quilting techniques and used Sew Fine and Madeira on top, and MagnaGlide in the bobbin. This one took much longer than I anticipated, but I believe the effort was worth it.
