Working on some of my own quilts!

I've been able to finish up some of my quilts this last week!

I have more pictures on my other blog

...and I've temporarily shut down my Business Website ;o(

I'm looking into other options right now for that.

Hope everyone has a great day!

My business was featured!

A while back Cindy from "Fluffy Sheep Quilting" asked if I would talk about my longarm quilting business on her blog.  She posted it this last week.  Check it out here:

I tried to keep it real.  ;o)

Thanks Cindy for highlighting me!

This is Ellen's quilt.  She likes the quilting on the lighter side.  I kept the quilting pretty simple.  I didn't stitch in the ditch on this quilt and continuous line.  I used two threads, a medium brown and a cream.  I used a curved ruler, for all the curved feather vines in the triangles.  For the center feather design, I used an acrylic circle to make a symmetrical feather vine around the outside of the in the center then filled in with the feathers.  Her piecing was amazing.  Perfectly square!!

This is Elna's sweet quilt.  I used the pattern Deb's Dahlias on it.

This is Chris's quilt.  The all over feather was a perfect fit for this lovely feed sack-traditional quilt. 

This is Kathy's quilt.  I used a variegated orange and black thread and did sort of a freehand meander on a vine.  I like how it turned out!

This is Deb's quilt.  I used "Wonderland" by Ann Bright and a variegated tan/cream/white thread....Rainbows/Superior.

Deb is one of the first ladies I ever quilted for and one of the fastest quilters I know.  She told me yesterday she would test one of my patterns for me!!

This fun quilt is Yolanda's!  I met Yolanda through Flikr.  She wanted modern quilting on her quilt.  Not a request I get very often.  I used an ice blue thread on the blues and charcoal thread on the black.  Warm and white batting....I had no problem with the white showing through the needle holes.  Her back was pieced with lots of seams and since the batting is pretty thin the seams stood up some...but since the quilting is pretty pushed the seams right down and I was very pleased with that.  This quilt DID  NOT take 4 1/2 hours to quilt up.  :) !!  It was great challenging myself to some modern quilting.  Thanks for the chance to do that Yolanda!!
