Wedding Message Quilt

One of my great clients made this top and I just quilted and finished it for her. Some of the squares have messages written to the bride and groom at their wedding (her daughter). So cool!

Mother's Day Photo Quilt

Another quilt to share! It's a busy time for quilts right now between graduation and Mother's Day lol. This is a photo quilt that I made for Mother's Day for a client. We used colors from the Mother's d├ęcor for fabric inspiration. This is a throw size quilt. I love that I also have pictures to share of her receiving the quilt today too. Love those "after" photos!!! Keep them coming.

Graduation Quilt Time

It's that time of year again! Time for graduation quilts picking picked up and pictures shared with you guys.

This graduation quilt was just picked up, but my clients says it's okay to go ahead and post pictures. This quilt was made from the young man's t-shirts and sports jerseys. It was a full size quilt and we used Kona Cardinal and Kona Mustard fabrics. I really hope he likes it!

T-Shirt Quilt

I finished this quilt recently. The client picked great colors too. This was for one of her daughters using her shirts from school. One block was a hoodie and I quilted around the part for you hands to leave it open so she can warm her hands there or a place to tuck a tissue or the remote lol. I think it turned out great!

Finishing a T-Shirt Quilt Top

This quilt was made by another friend (also my wonderful hair stylist) using some of her treasured shirts. I quilted it using a freehanded meander pattern and then finished it off with coordinating binding. She used a sheet for the backing which turned out so pretty! She did an excellent job!

Capri Feathers

This top was made by a friend of mine. I did the longarm quilting on it. I used the Capri Feathers deign by Donna Kleinke. I think it turned out so pretty.
