Happy National Sewing Machine Day!!

It’s been awhile since I have posted, but I have been busy quilting as much as possible!!

I recently had the opportunity to quilt this beautiful quilt for Peggy (owner of Peggy’s Sewing Center).  This pattern is called “A Prairie Gathering” and is by Pam Buda/Heartspun Quilts.

I first saw this quilt and immediately thought of feathers…….lots and lots of feathers!!!!!  And you will see I did do feathers, but I also added some other designs too!!

We had decided to use Quilters Dream Wool Batting as that would show off the quilting texture well.  I used Superior So Fine 50 Thread for the top and Wonderfil DecoBobs for the bobbin.

The next few photos are quilts that I recently quilted for my customer & friend, Ellen.  She always makes such fun & bright quilts.  The whale quilt was made for a young friend of Ellen’s as a special gift to her.  Who wouldn’t want to receive a quilt like this!!!!  Awesome!!

The Hedgehog quilt is being used as a shop sample for awhile and was a lot of fun to quilt.  I had always wanted to try some Graffiti quilting and ended up doing that in the background of this wall hanging.  I have to say it was a little out of my comfort level, but it was a lot of fun to do!!
