A Sneak Peek…

I hope that you enjoyed our local Quilt Show in the past few posts. Now I

am catching up with clients’ quilts and this post holds pictures of those  for you.

There is also a special sneak peek at the end of the post but you will

have to wait for the full reveal next week.

Mary created this quilt a long time ago; it’s funny when she looks back at it

now because her taste has changed so much. Can you remember your

first quilt? Fast forward to today and check out how your quilts have

changed since then.

A close up of the blocks and the fabrics in the quilt. It reminds me of

a quilt by Zen Chic.

A pieced backing always adds so much more interest to the quilt.

A white polyester thread was used for the top and the backing.

Carol made this quilt from plaid shirts that she picked up at the

Thrift STore.

I

I love the newspaper print fabric in this block. A cream polyester thread

was used for the top and the backing. Flirtatious is the name of the

overall design stitched onto the quilt.

The backing

The backing is a light green fabric that is really shiny and soft.

You can really see all the texture from the quilting on the top.

This is quilt #2 for Carol. The same design is stitched all over

the quilt and a light pink polyester thread was used for the top

and the backing.

I really like the light floral print on the backing of the quilt.

Floral backing

The flowers are very feminine and pretty.

Carol’s Owl quilt

This Owl quilt is so cute. Carol is  quite the  piecer and very quick too.

How can you not love this owl?

A grey backing for the Owl Quilt. Happy Times is the name of the

overall design stitched on the quilt. A light grey polyester thread

was used for the top and the backing.

Square Quilt

Carol also made this beauty. I really love the colors in this one. I used a

monofilament thread to do all the ditch work. White  thread was used for the

border areas.

I love the straight line quilting in the border area.

Inside Border area

The inside border area, has  the same design as the blocks.

The backing

The backing is full of texture. You can see all the outlines of the blocks from

the quilt top.

 

Another graphic design that I love. Carol also created this quilt.

Triangle Quilt

Each block is composed of 4 half triangles stitched together.  I really like the

overall design but I can not imagine how much time it took to piece this baby.

The backing

I used a white polyester thread for the top and the backing.

Again, I love the overall design of the quilting on the backing.

And now, for the sneak peek. Northcott contacted me to help

do some longarming for the upcoming Quilt Show in Houston.

This is the backing of one of the tablerunners I completed. All I have to say is

“The fall fabric is gorgeous!”

I have got to buy some. Even though it is digitally printed, the colors in this

table runner  are full of reds, oranges, and creams.  I think that you

will agree when you see the full quilt.

Next week, I will show you all 4 of the pieces I did for them.

Have a great week and check out The Needle and Thread Network.
