Christmas Gifts

I was thrilled to quilt this gift for Sherri. She made it on the sly for her mother. Sherri took me up on my offer to sew binding in order to really keep it secret. She dropped off a flimsy and I returned a completely finished top. All she had to do was wrap and place it under the tree. It is a stunning purple and fuschia throw. She also made matching pillow shams.

I quilted dragon fly daisy and used a light grey So-Fine thread for top and back.

Thanks Sherri! I loved quilting this for you and can't wait to see what else you come up with!

I didn't even realize at first, but another customer made the same pattern. This blue and white beauty belongs to Iris. She was on a mission this past year to make quilts for her kids and hubby. The blue and white is crisp and clean

I quilted Iris's quilt with the tickle panto. It is one of my faves! I used a blizzard white So-Fine thread on the top and bright blue on the back. Iris purchased a cuddle backing from me to finish off the quilt. I love the feel of a cuddle backing. This quilt will be cherished. 

 I love seeing a quilt come together . This is a shot of another of Iris's quilts half done ... that is the gingersnap panto on hunter star. To take a flimsy and make it come alive is magical!
