Custom Machine Quilting a Scrappy Quilt by Natalia Bonner

Kathy made this gorgeous quilt, it's actually only the third quilt that she's made, and she did a fantastic job!

Kathy sent me this quilt and asked me to custom machine quilt it for her, she gave me the go-ahead to quilt it however I wanted, but, it is going to be a gift for a special friend so she really wanted the quilting to be special.


Scrappy Quilt - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

Over the past few years I've custom machine quilted several gorgeous quilts for Donna. Her piecing and applique skills never disappoint. 

This adorable scrappy quilt is another one of her beautiful quilts.

It's International Quilt Market time, that means one exciting thing, lot's of eye candy coming your way! My friend Vanessa from Lella Boutique has an adorable new fabric line coming out in the spring, Little Miss Sunshine, I love the colors and the prints in this line, but the patterns that Vanessa has designed to go along with this line are to die for.

My cute friend, Melissa from The Polka Dot Chair has created an other adorable quilt pattern featuring her fabric line, Derby Style. 

The quilt is adorable and big enough that it will eventually go on her daughters bed.

Cupid's Arrow - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

I've been busy machine quilting quilts for Quilt Market so I feel like, even though I've been really busy I haven't had much I've been able to share with you. I just finish my last market quilt yesterday so I should be able to get back to sharing what I've been up to! :)

This adorable quilt is one that I recently quilted, and I had so much fun machine quilting it! 


By Small & Simple Things - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

The ladies at my local quilt shop, Quilted Works are always coming up with something fun and adorable. Their latest creation is this fun, By Small & Simple Things quilt. 

I had fun custom machine quilting it for them. The applique on this quilt is made from raw edge fusible applique, but what's really cool about their applique is that it's all laser cut so you just have to peel and press, no cutting out tiny applique shapes! So cool!


Machine Quilting - In the Studio with Natalia Bonner

I've often been asked, in the classes I teach or by quilting friends if they can just hang out and watch me quilt. I always have to laugh to myself, because it's such a huge compliment, but my sewing space is pretty small, and there's just no room. :)

So, while I was free-motion quilting a quilt recently I set up my tripod and filmed a few minutes of me machine quilting. 

I hope you like it!


Halloween Quilt - Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

Jenn and her mom Tina recently made a couple of adorable Halloween quilts. I love that these quilts are Halloween quilts, but aren't the traditional Halloween colors.


Twisty - Modern One-Block Quilts

So, you know the saying, "chocolate is the way to a girls heart?" Well, since I don't really like chocolate (I know, I can hear you gasping through the computer screen) the best way to my heart is through quilts! I've told you a few times before about the adorable quilts that Paula makes for her grandchildren. She has been busy the last few years making quilts for each of her grandchildren. She lets them pick out the pattern and fabrics and then she makes them a quilt. I have had so much fun quilting these quilts for her, and I get so excited for her grandkids each time I see one of her adorable quilts.
