Love My Job!!!

I love my job! I get to see not just my own quilts, but others' quilts come to life with quilting. It adds a lot of variety to my quilting world!
I have three client quilts to share with you today. 

This fun Christmas throw is Marcia's. It's a group effort--others made the trees for her and she put them together and added the 3-D pinwheels.

This quilt definitely needed some custom treatment. Marcia called those trees "toe catchers", as her granddaughter loves to sit on it now, but her toes can get caught on those 3-D trees. The same is true with my hopping foot--I had to be careful not to catch one of those trees while swirling the background!

The border called for some piano key quilting, with snowflakes added on each "key".

The borders and many of the blocks are made from a fabric line by Basic Grey. I love the turquoise thrown in there with the traditional greens and reds of Christmas.

Vickie made this log cabin quilt for her sister's birthday. 

It's made from a variety of batiks and print fabrics.

This edge-to-edge design is "Oma's Garden", featuring feathers, hearts, leaves and swirls.

I'm sure her sister will love it!

Julia said this is the third time she has made this quilt pattern! I quilted one for her--you can find it here, in pink, green and ecru.

I quilted "Flirtatious" on it, which is light and airy.

She chose Quilter's Dream Puff batting, which makes the quilting show up nicely. 

Come back on Monday, when I will be posting an intro as part of the "2017 New Quilt Bloggers"!

Grace and peace!!!  ~Nancy

  1. Love your quilting! I am a newbie longarm quilter. I have been hesitant to use colorful thread with a white or beige backing. It seems the colorful thread is good with the quilt top, but I wondered how the colorful thread would look on the back. How do you feel about this?

  2. Nancy, these are beautiful. I love the tree quilt. Who would have thought to add the pinwheels. Beyond my mind, but looks beautiful.

  3. Beautiful quilting Nancy, the tree quilt must have been kind of a challenge but it looks great!

  4. Most unusual tree quilt-I love it! Nice work:)

  5. Like everyone else, I love the tree very creative project.
    Your quilting is beautiful. I just know I'd get lost in the quilt and forget to stay on track. Talk about able to make a mess!

  6. Lovely quilts all. The quilting is spectacular! Good job! Isn't it nice to love what you do!

  7. What beautiful quilting! Your customers must be in love with the skill and care you put into their quilts!
