Transforming a Simple 9-Patch Quilt

This super cool quilt was pieced by my friend Jamie. She pieced this quilt as a gift for a friends 50th birthday. How sweet is that!
Jamie sent the quilt to me and told me that she wanted custom machine quilting, but basically I could do whatever I wanted. So I just did whatever I felt like at that moment. :)
I really wan't too sure how I was going to quilt it in the beginning, so I took a picture of it, sometimes when I see quilts in a photo then I can see the pattern better and get more ideas how to machine quilt it.
It's kinda cool to see the before and after pictures.
Jamie did ask me to machine quilt a 50 somewhere in the quilt. Since it is a birthday gift. I love how it turned out, it's there, but it's very subtle.
It was a very fun quilt to custom machine quilt.
I thought the back turned out really cool too, so I had to share a picture. :)

And if this isn't enough of a picture overload....here are a few from Instagram

  5. That is an amazing quilt, you really outdid yourself with the designs and incorporating the 50, into it.

  6. I think I love the back even more - so beautiful. So nice when both sides of a quilt are equally beautiful so you can flip it over and get a new look and feel whenever you like.
