My friends over at Fat Quarter Shop have teamed up with Sherri Falls of This & That Pattern Company and created this darling new Holiday Wishes book. The book is darling and features 12 quilts for a homemade holiday.
Barbara made this gorgeous version of my Over Under pattern. I've mentioned this before, but machine quilting quilts for my customers that they've made from quilt patterns I've designed is possibly the most exciting part of my job! I just get so excited!
Ann and her granddaughter made this darling quilt! I love when I hear that my customers are making quilts with their grand-kids, it just makes my little heart so happy!
Ann sent me this fun quilt and asked me to machine quilt it for her. She wanted an edge to edge pattern. Because the applique is just fused on, it wasn't held on by any stitching I knew that I needed to machine quilt a heavier pattern to really hold that applique down.
Betty made this gorgeous quilt as a gift for her grandson. It's just stunning. When Betty sent it to me she asked me to custom machine quilt it for her. She really loves feathers, and so do I, so I knew this was going to be a fun quilt to machine quilt.
Red Rock Modern Quilt Guild - Fat Quarter Challenge - Edge to Edge Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner
My local Modern Quilt Guild, Red Rock Modern Quilt Guild, issued a fun fat quarter challenge a few months back. Each member purchased 5 fat quarters from our local quilt shop, Quilted Works, and we were challenged to make a quilt using the fat quarters. The quilt could be any size, there just needed to be a noticeable amount of each of the fabrics in the quilt.
Kim made this gorgeous applique quilt and sent it to me for some custom machine quilting. Kim gave me the go-ahead to quilt it as I wanted. I knew that it needed some fun custom machine quilting to really make her fabulous applique pop.
Marilyn made this beautiful scrappy quilt and sent it to me for some custom machine quilting. With this fun quilt I decided to keep the quilting a little bit soften than I usually quilt. So, through all of the scraps I machine quilted X's.
Hi quilty friends! Hope your summer is going great! Last week I spent most of the week in Reno, NV teaching at Sew Original Sewing & Creative Expo. It was a great event and I had a great time teaching there. I did have big plans to get caught up on the blog in my down time, but between teaching 6 classes in four days, and trying to catch up on other necessary obligations unfortunately blogging fell to the way side.
But, I'm back now and will be until the first part of August, so hopefully I can be a little more consistent here.
Before I left I finished custom machine quilting this gorgeous Summer Breeze quilt for Emma. Emma sent me this beautiful quilt and asked me to custom machine quilt it for her, she gave me the go-ahead to quilt it however I wanted.
I really wanted to continue the ocean feel throughout the quilt and I think that I really was able to capture that feel.
Patti made this gorgeous yellow and white quilt and brought it to me for some custom machine quilting. Because the quilt is so crisp and straight lined Patti asked me to custom machine quilt the quilt with some curves. When I looked at the quilt I decided to add flowers in the more solid blocks and straight lines into the patchwork blocks. I love that by quilting the quilt this way the flowers really just pop!
