Custom Machine Quilting for Nellie's Needle

I'm super duper excited that it's International Quilt Market week so I can finally start sharing some of the quilts that I've been machine quilting.

I'm still in North Carolina, I've been busy here teaching our Lattice quilt, and today I'll be teaching Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting and I'll be sharing my quilts tonight in a trunk show, I'll share details and lots of pictures when I get back home. :)

Anyways, back this this beauty! Karen from Nellie's Needle designed and made this gorgeous quilt! When Karen sent me this quilt she said, quilt it however you want, just no spider webs! Haha, okay! So, I machine quilted some jumbo flowers in the octogans, totally opposite of spider webs!
For the background I stitched-in-the ditch around the blocks and then echoed in about 1/4". Then I alternated machine quilting patterns, using figure eights and swirls! I freaking love how this quilt turned out! I didn't want to give it back to Karen!
Karen will have this quilt, along with several others with her at International Quilt Market and Quilt Festival in Houston, if you're attending either make sure to stop by her booth and check out all of the eye-candy!
