..... but, she has a "million dollar view" don't you think?
I don't normally post pictures on my blog until after the customer has picked up their quilts. I have six sitting and waiting to go to their rightful homes, but all of the following have been picked up and most likely bound by now!
This first quilt was #1 on my to do list after coming back from Mexico. You might have a bit of trouble figuring out the front from the back of this quilt - Linda pieced the back using 2 1/2 inch strips. I admit, I was a bit nervous when I was loading the quilt on Freeda, as I wanted to be 100% sure that it was straight. Even one cm difference would have shown in the backing - but thankfully, Linda is an excellent piecer, and the strip on the bottom of the quilt backing was as straight as the first strip on the top! Whew! (Glide thread; Flirtatious panto; Hobbs 80/20 batting)

These next two quilts belong to Stacy - who has been a busy mother with a new baby and a 3 year old! Somehow she still finds the time to quilt!

You've seen quilts done by Louise before . . . here , here, and here . . . she's one busy quilter. These two are for her granddaughters. One of the great things about Louise's quilts is the beautiful choice of fabrics, but another feature are the innovative pieced backings that Louise puts together! Pieced backings can sometimes cause a problem for longarmers (don't ask me how I know this) . . . but Louise's backings are beautiful and square and add another dimension to her quilts.

Another repeat customer, Eleanore - this quilt is made from a selection of tan/gold/brown flannels. It is for her son's fiancé, so she wanted it to look a bit more feminine - I think we accomplished that! (Glide thread; freehand swirl/feathers; Hobbs 80/20 batting)

oops . . . one more! Joan is a new customer who made this quilt for her for her daughter. It is a "Around the World" type pattern made from a beautiful selection of blue/grey batiks. I used my favorite freehand design - swirl feather - using Glide thread - Graphite color. I love that color of thread!
