I’ve been doing a bit more quilting for clients recently, which I’ve really been enjoying. I love quilting on my longarm, and it is a fun to see other people’s work.
I met Susan through a mutual friend. She does a lot of stamping and card making, but this was her first quilt. She did such a great job with it – it is so pretty, and it was really very flat and square.
I had been wanting to add a swirl pattern to my computerized quilting library and recently purchased this pattern. We chose a darker yellow thread to go with the fall-like colors of the quilt, and I got to work.
Here she is all loaded up:
The first row of swirls:
adding more and more swirls. I love how they interlock together:
all finished, off the frame and trimmed up a bit:
This is the back. I think the yellow thread looks awesome:
Susan finished up the binding with the darker fabric from the back and sent me a few photos:
and you know I love the photos with a dog or cat photobomb. She got 2 pups into this photo!
I’m so happy she’s happy with how it turned out. She even brought me these great cards as a thank you – they are so pretty!
I have to admit I never got into stamping or card making. I really kind of thought it was a slippery slope – so many stamps! so many ink colors! so many cool things to make! Susan makes some really neat things – you can follow her over at SusanLegits.com.
Thanks Susan for letting me quilt your first quilt!
Oh, I do love those swirls! I wish I could do them that perfectly FMQ style. This is Susan’s first quilt? It’s gorgeous! And the quilting is the icing on the cake!
It is her first quilt – can you believe it? It is really a pretty one.
I wish I could do swirls that perfectly too – time for more practice!
The swirls look really nice on the fall themed quilt.
Thanks Lisa. I always love a good swirl!
What a great post! I am super happy with my quilt.
