2 family quilts

A cute baby quilt made by Ashley for her sister-in-law who just had a little girl after 4 boys:)

An all-over panto with flowers, leaves and swirls - seemed to go well with the fabric.

A re-do. Ashley returned this bedspread to me to put more quilting on to it. I just added more in the white, red and yellow strips. I thought it needed more initially, but she needed to see it herself before deciding the same.

Hope this is ok?

3 quilts

3 customer quilts that almost slipped through the cracks. This first one was an all-over feather panto.

A Triple Irish Chain that I did line dancing in the colorful squares and a feather wreath in the white open areas and a chain on the white border.

I was in such a hurry to get these photos taken that I didn't get this quilt flattened out very well. I have yet to find a good place to take pictures in our new house.

This colorful and interesting quilt had an all-over panto of swirls in the center with a custom border. She requested a varigated colored thread which was fun.

Quilt Hanger

I recently attended HMQS which I was very excited to go since I've missed the past two years. I had a list of things I wanted to find while of which was some kind of quilt hanging system that I could hang up the upcoming customer's quilt to be thinking of quilting ideas while working on the current one on my machine. There were a couple of different ones to choose from and this is the one I came home with. A metal plate that attaches to the wall with two super strong magnets. Then an inexpensive metal tension curtain rod that I just wrap the quilt top around and clamp with clothes pins and that rod sticks to those magnets great -- very strong attachment. Yippee.
