In the studio, I quilted a baby quilt for a new Grandma. She did cross stitch on pre-quilted fabric and didn't know what to do to cover the back and finish the project. I think my solution turned out well. No batting (it was already in the fabric) some blue backing and a bit of quilting to hold it all together. I added bias binding (she had cut the piece with round corners) and voila! A beautiful baby quilt.
|The customer did a beautiful job with the embroidery!|
|The quilting is simple, but does the job of holding the quilt together and keeping it flat. Pardon my fingers in the picture...I was trying to hold the bottom of the quilt up for you to see.|
|I quilted through the embroidery and around stars, moons and clouds, as well as feathers in the borders. Its not warped...my fingers are the culprit!|
At home, I got this modern quilt done and returned to the customer.
|The customer chose Time Warp for her pantograph. It looks great on this modern quilt.|
|I touched up all the spots and the back looks perfect.|
|This quilt has a long history! The customer has worked on it for three years...but only at the guild retreat! She made the back at the retreat last week, and now that its quilted, she joked that next year she will do the binding!|

|Mr W did a stellar job matching the front piecing to the back piecing.|
|This small baby quilt was the first for the Grandma-to-be. It is made from long staple organic Egyptian cotton fabric. Wow! All I know is that it has a soft hand and is smooth to touch.|
|I know the pictures are backwards from the usual, but the panto used is Daisy Swirl, done with a light peach thread.. Its a sweet flower and heart design.|
