Here a few of my own projects that I've been working on lately. I'm making a quilt for J's bed, using a pattern from this book:

I have a $30 minimum per quilt, but sometimes when there are 2 or 3 small quilts that can be mounted on a large backing I can waive the minimum charge. This is especially true if the quilts are similar in size and can use the same thread color and pattern, like these quilts below.
If I can use one large backing piece for all the quilts, I only have to mount that once on the frame, and this saves me time. These quilts all had the same backing and thread color, so I just zipped the backings together with the serger & loaded the one large backing piece.

Some pictures of a customer's t-shirt quilt I quilted. This is done using Dave Hudson's "Stars" pattern. I haven't used this pattern often, but I really like how this turned out. With most t-shirt quilts, I go right through the logo's on the shirts. Unless there is a really thick section that may bend a needle or cause it to skip stitches. Then I will go around that area. Most of the time, I can go right through with no problems.

If you're a Cyclone fan, you'll love this one! All Cyclone fabrics, and a soft red flannel backing. This was quilted using the "square spiral" quilting pattern. It looks like I didn't get a picture of the whole quilt, just a close-up of the front.
And this is one quilted with "Hearts Surfing". I think this is the first time I've used this pattern.
