9 quilts

This is a quilt I made for Blake and Sarah's wedding......which was a month ago and I just finally got it finished.  They're lucky to be getting it this quickly, I had to literally shoe-horn it into my schedule, but I finally managed to finish it!
A cute baby quilt by Ages
Another cute baby quilt by Agnes...really like the textured blocks, different.
A third quilt by Agnes, a guys type quilt this time (Agnes is working at catching up on her UFOs).
This is the back...I really like the border design I came up with on this one, wasn't sure if I'd like it - but it's cool.
These next 3 quilts are all the same pattern, just different colors, by Sarah....getting Christmas quilts ready for grandkids.
A super nifty baby quilt by Kassie - she said she made it up....never seen a Dresden plate this large, it is unique.  she's a young gal, kind of new to quilting and she's done some very fun things! Love it!
A second fun little baby quilt by Kassie - look at those cute ruffles (she had her baby last week).

Many A (group B is after this so keep reading down.)

I love, Love, LOVE this quilt by Nancy.  I told her I want to borrow the pattern and make one of these some day. 
We discussed how cool it would be if the green was trapunto, but neither she nor I really had much experience with that, but in the end, the way I quilted it - it looks like it was!!  So, win-win!!
This has been the month for baby quilts - this one by Lynette
with "stars and loops" panto
Two quilts by Brenda, the same quilt pattern, but one done with a Christmas theme and the other with a Fall theme.   "Holly Berries" panto in the center with two custom borders.
Here's the Fall one,
"Leaf Pile" panto with two custom borders
A fun Halloween quilt by Agnes which she plans to put on her table for the month of Oct.
I googled "bats" and found a picture that I was able to sketch off and use for the border.
Fun pieced backing for the halloween quilt.  Some of my customers are real creative with their backs and left over fabrics :)
This is the Christmas quilt from above, somehow it ended up down here....don't ask me why.

Many B

I had so many pictures I divided them up into two groupings, since my computer kept freezing up on me. 

Two simple, enveloped, baby whole cloth quilts by Jone...
One with "Popcorn" panto
the second with "Daisy Bounce" panto
Jone's 3rd baby quilt (she's must know a number of expecting moms :) 
This one done with all-over swirls.
Baby quilt by Sheri, with a cowboy theme
"stars and loops" pant
ANOTHER baby quilt, this one by Nancy
"Animal Crackers" panto
This customer was brand new to quilting when she made this for her mother.  It was enveloped but never tied or quilted.  I told her if she could sneak it away from her mom I could quilt it up for her (now that she knows a bit more about the quilting world....she realized it really wasn't compete!)  There were some issues, and I had to work around things not being very flat or straight - but got it done fairly decently.
I had to stay away from the edges farther than I would have preferred to keep from getting puckers, I was happy it turned out as good as it did.
