Wooly Quilts Progress

Here is another Cuppa Quilt, quilted for Pam V.  Her stitching up close was exceptional!!  I’d love to know the trick for getting those tiny chain stitches so even.  Here are some photos.

 

 

Look at her stitches the chain stitch, running stitch….all of them perfect!!

For those still waiting I’m working on two for Sue, then Jan and Andrea. They are the last of my Wooly quilts for 2017 & probably for ever except for my own.

Thank you to those that have waited patiently for their quilts.

Winter Quilts

Here are some winter quilts. First a quilt themed after the movie Frozen. The quilting design is Star Swirl by Terri Watson and Michelle Wyman, a silver blue thread & Hobbs 80/20 batting.

      

Another winter quilt, the quilting design is Winter Wonderland by Barb Becker, Blue thread and Hobbs 80/20 batting.

This is a table topper by Pat L. She embroidered the center motif. The quilting design is Holiday Vine B2B by Ann Bright, gold thread & Hobbs Poly-down batting.

 

Joyful Thanksgiving

I wish everyone a Thanksgiving full of joy.

I will have family in for the long weekend so I will not be quilting or scheduling appointments. All quilting business will resume on Monday Nov 27th.

For those waiting on a Wooly quilts, I will be working exclusively on these to complete and ship them before Christmas.  I will also be in touch with you with any additional questions that may arise regarding the quilting of your quilt.

I am currently book appointments for January quilts.  If you have a last minute holiday quilt that still needs quilting, consider gifting the quilt top with a gift certificate for quilting.   They will love choosing a design and threads for their own quilt.

Enjoy the holiday!

 

 

Consider a Holiday Gift Certificate

Are you still working on a quilt gift for the holidays?  Most quilters this time of the year are already booking for the 2018.

Have you considered giving a Gift Certificate for the quilting?   It can be a lot of fun to have the quilt recipient participate in selecting the quilting design and thread color for their quilt.   You can still bind it or include that in the gift total as well.

Gift certificates can be sent via USPS or email.

Call to make arrangements.

 

Dawg Daze Charity Quilt

Martha made this Dawg Daze quilt top in a class and is donating it to charity. I didn’t think a edge to edge design would look good. I decided to play around a bit on it a bit instead. If you look closely you can see cats in the batik border fabric.  I hope the child that receives this quilt really enjoys it.

More quilts

This is a UFO (Unfinished Object) quilt from the 80’s that Lori had hung onto for a long time. She didn’t give up on it and it looks really cute finished with the Dragonflies allover design quilted on it, mauve thread & Hobbs 80/20 batting.  She found a nice floral coordinating backing fabric that works well with the top. Cute!!!

Rosanne made this cute polka dot quilt. She wanted more circles so chose Big and Little E2E, red thread & Hobbs 80/20 batting. I like it!!

Virginia Tech and Marcia Derse Quilts

Martha’s Virginia Tech quilt with Embellish design, orange thread & Hobbs 80/20 batting.

This is Martha’s Around the Square Quilt. The fabrics are Marcia Derse.  I love the Traveling Trapezoids design and dark grey thread on this. She found a Marcia Derse fabric for the backing. The batting is Warm and Natural.

I am making the same quilt with the same fabrics but I’m no where near done yet.  I love it! Can’t wait to get mine done now.
