Applique Christmas Quilt - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

Ruth pieced and applique'd this beautiful Christmas quilt. She brought it to me and asked me to custom machine quilt it for her. Quilts like this one, with a lot of little details are always so much fun to machine quilt and really bring to life. 

I custom machine quilted, using several different thread colors around each of the blocks and borders. I combined feathers, straight lines, pebbles, swirls, ruler work, echoing and clams. There is really some of everything on this quilt, but the quilting motifs all go together so nicely. 

I just love how this quilt turned out! I'm still having so much fun preparing for Christmas and quilting fun Christmas quilts just adds to the excitement!

Thanks for letting me machine quilt this beautiful quilt Ruth!

I used Quilters Dream Wool Batting and So Fine! thread by Superior Threads.

My machine quilting is done on a Gammill 22" Long-Arm Quilting Machine.
