Quilting Up A Storm!

There's been a lot of quilting going on in the quilt studio recently! I love seeing the variety of quilts that my clients bring me. 

This first one is my Quiltin' Cousin Sue's quilt. It is her mystery quilt from Quilt Cove, where they give out two free mystery quilt patterns a year at the monthly Quarter Inch Club. Beautiful choice of colors and fabrics, Sue!

I quilted it with a new edge-to-edge design called "Soap Bubbles"--triangles, half moons and circles. Perfect on Sue's quilt!

Check out the neat "text" fabric she found for the back: 

The next quilt was made by Sue's daughter, Katie. Yes, quilting runs in our family! Now that her BF has received it, I'm posting the full photo. Almost full photo, that is--it's 95" X 99", so I had to fold back one edge.

The pattern is called "Fractured". I quilted it with a cute edge-to-edge design called "Loopy Over You".

This is Wendy's quilt--very soft pink roses for a baby girl on the way.

The pattern is called "Labyrinth" by Calico Carriage Quilt Designs. I quilted it using "Oma's Garden", which features feathers, hearts, swirls and leaves.

This bright, happy quilt is Sharon's quilt!

She asked for "Blooming Stars" to be quilted on it.

And the back:

And lastly, I have some progress to report on Mary's two extra-long twin-size quilts. I'm making them from the start.  Here's what 560 half square triangles look like:

And here are the trimmings, to get each one the exact right size!

  1. Those are a lot of lovely quilts. But those rainbow trimmings!!! I love it!

  2. Beautiful quilting! Love how neatly you stacked all those HST....Also love those a fringed pillow or something in your future?

  3. What eye candy today -- thanks. I especially like that you've named the quilting designs you used. I may have to buy Soap Bubbles for my long arm too. YIKES -- that is a lot of half square triangles. But I love how artistic the trimmings look!

  4. 560!! Wow that is amazing - great job, all round :)

  5. Beautiful quilts! That's a lot of HSTs, but they certainly make a for a gorgeous chevron quilt.
