October is always a fabulous month for quilting! This year was no exception!
My mom made this fantastic baby quilt! The pattern is Fit to be Tied by Karie Patch Designs. My mom did a great job pulling fabrics from different lines for this quilt. I really love the colors. If you are local, there are patterns available at Gracie Lou's.
You may have seen this soccer quilt on Instagram. I fell completely in love with it! The fabrics Jennylynn chose to go with her daughter's school colors are perfect. And those soccer balls....she made those using her commercial embroidery machine and they are SOFT! I need to have her make me up some labels, and I am still planning and plotting a quilt with those soccer balls! You can contact Jennylynn at Crazy 4 Embroidery .
I have never met a person who does not like the Swoon quilt. And for that matter, I have never met a Swoon quilt that I didn't like. This Christmas version by Karly is no exception. She didn't want it quilted too much, so I went with a snowflake design in the center star. It turned out better than I imagined!
You know what is super cool? When I get new customers from other states, who dare send me their projects. I loved quilting these quilts for Adrienne's twin daughters. The Heather Ross prints are unique and fun. They kept me entertained.
And who doesn't love a sprial fill design? It always turns out great and adds fun movement and texture to quilts. I kept the block quilting in order to not detract from the cute fabrics.
Carolyn mentioned that this quilt belonged to her grandmother. What a privilege it was for me to quilt it for her. A true scrappy quilt!
I have quilted a few of these Touchdown quilts, and overtime I do I have to explain to my boys why they can't keep it. Then they take a closer look and realize that is isn't their favorite team anyway. This quilt is definitely on my bucket list to make.
I love, love, love all of Kristin's Cute Quilt Patterns. It is such an honor to quilt for her. I was lucky to quilt for her book. Cute Quilts for Kids, and continue to by lucky enough to quilt new things for her frequently. This pattern is Flutterby Butterfly and you can buy it from her shop!
I knew I wanted to mix straight and curved lines on this nine patch quilt. It turned out just how I imagined. The colors are great too, don't you think?
This Halloween quilt for Barb has it's own post. You can read more and see more here.
The fabrics, the trees, the birds, the textures are all awesome in this quilt.
As I was quilting this Christmas quilt I realized what a great tree skirt it would make! Love those snowmen and christmas trees!
Simple designs are always fun to quilt. I have a hard time narrowing down my quilting options. This one turned out great!
This chevron quilt is going to need it's own post! It was Heidi's granddaughter's first quilt. She did an amazing job selecting fabrics in yellow, gray and turquoise.
I just quilted this amazing Halloween sampler quilt for Barb. I always feel super lucky to get to quilt something in season! I thought I would put a few more views of this quilt here on the blog so you can see how I quilted each area. Make sure you scroll to the bottom so you can see the spiderwebs in the border!
Quilt Market has begun and the social media buzz is strong! I always feel at least a tinge of jealousy when I am not there to enjoy it. As I have watched other quilters post things they have done for market this year I feel admiration for them! I love watching others succeed.
Then I remembered, I have stuff at Quilt Market too! Yay! I was over the moon when I received an email from Bonnie of Cotton Way last summer asking me to quilt a couple of her Daysail Quilts! I was able to quilt her Smooth Sailing quilt and her Surfs Up quilt. While I was first a little star struck, working with Bonnie was easy and fun. She was as kind and easy to talk to as all of my clients are.
Thanks again Bonnie!
Scroll away friends, and enjoy the photos posted below!

I love quilting for Kristin! Her quilts are unique in that they have 3-dimensional accents. She also has a book Cute Quilts for Kids with more adorable quilts to make for the cute kiddos in your life. I was the lucky duck that got to do the quilting for the quilts in the book, so check it out!
I am trying something new in an effort to post more regularly on this little blog of mine. From here on out I vow to post at least once a month to give a sampling of the customer quilts that I have worked on the previous month. September was an especially nice quilting month for me. These photos will be my proof!
Love, love, love this gray and yellow Jelly Filled quilt! Another classic design by Camille at Thimbleblossoms. It quilted up better than I even imagined!
My favorite part of this quilt are the figure eights in the solid triangles!
Christmas! Yay! I loved the trees in the border of this panel quilt.
I was lucky enough to be given another Rain Check quilt. Another Thimbleblossoms favorite. I have loads of photos of a previous one I quilted here.
Kristin Roylance of Cute Quilt Patterns sends me awesome stuff to quilt all of the time. These strawberries are so cute! I may have mentioned before, but I'll tell you again about Kristin's fabulous book Cute Quilts for Kids. It is fill of quilts for kids with 3-D embellishments. Check it out!
The next three are table runners or bench pillows. I love quilting these because they are so fast!
It was really cool to get this Hannah's Flower Garden quilt! I designed this quilt a few years back for my niece. I also made one for my daughter. My sister then marketed this pattern with her pattern company for a while. If you are interested in the pattern, send me an email.
