LONGARM QUILTING #11 - 2014

Yes, I'm still loving on my grand babies so there's no recent quilting but I told you I quilted like a crazy woman before I left.  Here are a few more quilts I quilted.  

Joy made this for her granddaughter for graduation.  Joy usually makes her grands a t-shirt quilt but this one requested a traditional  quilt.  I think it's beautiful!!!  It's the floating star pattern in red and purple batiks. 

Do you pre-wash your fabrics or batiks?  Here's testimony that you should.  Joy said she washed the red fabrics (with color catchers each time) about 4 times before she felt like they weren't bleeding anymore!  Can you imagine what a disaster the quilt would have been against those white backgrounds of the stars if she hadn't?  

I quilted the meandering feathers in Jamaican sun Glide thread.


Ruby has sent me a quilt at least once before using this pattern.  It's called Wedding Rings and it's quite appropriate for her gift she's giving for a 25th Wedding Anniversary.

Ruby had me personalize the center block with the couple's name and wedding anniversary date.

I quilted feathered hearts in cream thread.

Linda who used to live in Houston and now lives on the east coast sent me this quilt.  She started it on a quilting cruise.

I quilted Curls and Pearls on it.

Linda also sent me this twister quilt she started on a quilting cruise also.  I love the beachy/sea fabrics.

I quilted Deb's Swirl on it.

And last, but certainly not least, as it's a monster size quilt, Jan made this quilt.  

I quilted modern hourglass design on the very modern feeling quilt.  Very pretty blues set off by the white background.
