latest quilts finished....

I took some time to quilt a baby quilt that I've had pieced for a while.  I used the "Double Spiral" pattern on this one. I have used this on a few customer quilts lately, too, and I really like the clean lines of this pattern.  The circular lines are a nice contrast to the sharp points & straight lines of the piecing. 

I don't remember the name of this pattern... I think I jotted down the notes of how to make the block from the show "Simply Quilts" when that used to be on TV years ago.  Too bad they cancelled that one.  Each block goes together super fast. 

I found this fun boat fabric that had some of the same colors from the front to use for the backing:
And, this is a quilt using the new "Swirling Waters" pattern designed by Ellen Munnich.  It seems to work on well on "Asian" type prints.  Isn't this a fun swirly-looking design- sort of like a lazy pool water. 

And, a custom quilt with some very small pieces in those "Tree of Life" blocks.  Lots of little triangles!  A simple block design was requested in the alternating plain blocks, and so I used the square feather wreath there.  White-on-white quilting is always so pretty. 

 This is a baby quilt, the Dad is a pilot, so the quilter requested airplanes. After a little internet research, I found this pattern from The Quilter's Niche.

Also used the embroidery machine to personalize the quilt top with baby's first name.
