Scrappy Brown Quilt - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

Over the last month, or so, I've been machine quilting several quilts from my friend Cat. She and another friend Shantelle are going to have a special exhibit at HMQS this May - Sisters by Choice, so I've been helping her to finish several of her quilts.

I shared Cat's beautiful Bear Paw quilt yesterday, and today I've got another one of her beautiful quilts that I custom machine quilted for her.

I mentioned yesterday that Cat is a traditional girl at heart, so she loves feathers, swirls, all the good classic traditional quilting patterns. So, that's exactly what I stuck with on this beautiful quilt. I included a some crosshatching as well and really love how it turned out. 
When I layed the quilt out to photograph the morning sun was coming in the windows just right, so I had to snap a photo of the back of the quilt.

Thanks for letting me machine quilt for you Cat!
I used Quilters Dream Poly Deluxe Batting and So Fine! thread by Superior Threads.

  1. This is gorgeous! Your quilting is amazing and I love the brown fabrics...so warm and cozy looking!

  2. So lovely! You and Cat make a great team!

  3. I piece comforters (to be knotted) for Mennonite World relief -- always looking for patterns that make up faster than a lot of small scrappy patterns. They like the size 60 x 80 -- do you think I could adapt your large patterns to get close to this size? If so, how do I buy your patterns. I will add your Mom to my prayer list. God bless you, as you help her by selling patterns. Irene Krall
