Quilts that came in two by two . . .

Two customers - each with two quilts. 

The first one is a repeat customer, Gail.  She made this awesome quilt using a pattern and fabric from a local designer - Patternworkz Design Studio in Olds, Alberta.  The quilting is very simple - and just perfect for this quilt.  I stitched in the ditch around all the blocks, then quilted random diagonal lines in the interior of the blocks - following the lines in the fabric design.  The borders were quilted using diagonal lines - again, following the design in the fabric.  Very simple - but VERY effective!

Gail's second quilt was made with an oriental fabric - with just the right amount of gold accents.  Again, simple quilting with a great effect. 

my favorite block!

The next two quilts are from a new customer, Betty.  This rust/orange quilt was a Block of the Month from a local quilt shop, Along Came Quilting - this is the third one I've quilted over the past few years!  Falling Leaves panto, Glide thread.

Betty's beautiful Gold and Black quilt - with just a splash or red!  I love it!  Pretty Paisley panto, Glide thread.

 I have all my customer quilts completed - and will be posting pictures once I've delivered them all to their rightful owners.....then it's time to head south . . . this is what today looked like in Water Valley.  The deep freeze is on its way - supposed to be -27C by Tuesday . . . !!!

 Until next time, stay warm from the Little House!
