New York Beauty - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

2018 has been a crazy busy year for me, I've traveled, quite a bit, I've taught, a lot and I've really had so much fun. With all of that there has been less time spent here on the blog, and to be honest, that makes me really sad. I love that blogging and sharing my work here is what really helped me start my career down the crazy path that it's gone down and I'm forever grateful for the blogging platform.

I'm slowing down the travel a little bit and with that I hope I'll be able to get back to sharing more here with you. 

I recently custom machine quilted this stunning New York Beauty quilt and I albsolutely love how it turned out. I did a bit of ruler work some free-motion quilting, used a couple of thread colors and here's the final result. 

While I was working on this darling quilt I did film a few fun machine quilting videos. I share a little peek into the quilting on this quilt over on my YouTube chanel and also a bit of a more in depth look over on Patreon.
