Austin Bluebird Quilt - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

I recently custom machine quilted this beautiful Austin Bluebird quilt for Janet. If you remember earlier this year I custom machine quilted another one of these quilts and it turned out fabulous. Well, Janet loved that one so much that she asked me to quilt hers for her.

I have a hard time quilting two quilts exactly the same, I get bored. So, this one is similar to the other, but still a little bit unique.

I did a lot of ruler work with my 4-N-1 Machine Quilting Ruler and also my Trailer Ruler. There is something that I just love about crisp ruler work. I also quilted feathers and echoing to keep that nice traditional feel.

Thanks for letting me machine quilt your beautiful quilt Janet!

I used Quilters Dream Batting and SoFine! thread by Superior Threads.

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