Kira's Kids Quilts



Kira asked for special quilting on these two applique quilts for her son.  I chose a freehand design for the interior, and then a simple IQ pattern for the outer border.  Sew Fine thread was used on top and MagnaGlide in the bobbin.

Teresa H's Wedding Quilt Gift






Teresa pieced this quilt top (with a little help from some of her quilting buddies--including me) and left it up to me on how to quilt it.  I finished the quilting on Friday, May 25, Teresa bound it the next day, and it was hanging at the wedding reception for her son and new daughter-in-law the day after that!  Whew!

This was another combination of freehand and IQ designs.  I used many different colors of Sew Fine on top and MagnaGlide in the bobbin.

Susannah's Pillow Shams



Susannah hand embroidered two pillow shams for her mother and wanted something special quilted on them.  Her mom loves hummingbirds and so I did some creative clipping in IQ and placed facing hummingbirds within the circles.  I used Sew Fine on top and MagnaGlide in the bobbin.

Taryn's Photo Quilt







This was Taryn's first quilt and she did a wonderful job piecing the top!  As the photos were on the small side, I felt comfortable in quilting in the printed fabric only, leaving the photos untouched.  I used Sew Fine on top and MagnaGlide in the bobbin.

Dorothy M's Stars







Dorothy did an amazing job on this quilt top and I spent several days working to do it justice.  I used a combination of freehand and IQ patterns, using Sew Fine and Mono-poly on top and MagnaGlide in the bobbin.  She loves how it turned out and so do I!!

Cindy K's Amy Butler Fabric Blocks





Cindy asked for a graceful all-over pattern.  I used Sew Fine on top and MagnaGlide in the bobbin.

What's not to love about a big star in bright batiks?  I used an IQ panto, with Lava variegated thread on top and MagnaGlide in the bobbin.
