Very pretty 9-patch

 I really like this quilt by Ruth.  She made it with the intention of donating it to their upcoming family reunion, but likes it so well she's having second thoughts about that!  She paid me the compliment of saying that once I work my magic on it she's sure she won't want to give it away :) 
 I love the 9-patch flowers, what a creative idea....may have to steal this idea and use it sometime myself.

Sunbonnet Sue and Stack-n-Wack

 Oops, these WERE turned, don't know why they loaded sideways here.  Very cute quilt by Vicki.  The cross hatching takes forever, but I love how the sashing turned out, and that went pretty quickly. 

 This stack-n-wack was pieced by an older woman who is almost blind.  Remarkable that she did as well as she did.  There was a lot of extra fullness in the center and I had to use every trick I've ever learned to ease it all in.  Some of my quilting choices were dictated by what I could or couldn't do because of that fullness, I would have done the green areas differently on a flat quilt - but I'm delighted that it turned out as good as it did.

Can I remember how to do custom?

A pretty quilt by Louise.  I think this is only the 2nd custom job I've had in since before Christmas, very odd for me.  Typically the majority of my business is custom work though I enjoy doing E2E as well.  I had to dust off the old brain cells and get the creative juices flowing again, it was fun :)
