Summer quilting

School is out for the year... which means less time in the quilting studio.  I will still be doing quilts this summer, but I may not get them back to you as fast as I do when the kids are at school.  If you have a quilt with a deadline, make sure to get on the schedule early, so that you will be able to have your quilt back by the time you need it.

Aren't the colors striking in this Trip Around the World quilt?  The rainbow colors and verse are so pretty.  The customer requested the Baptist Fans pattern, which works so well with the rainbow theme.  

T-shirt quilts

T-shirt quilts seem to be gaining more popularity every year.  I worked on quite a few of them this spring for graduations- some that I just quilted, and some that I pieced the top also.

This one was one that I pieced & quilted for a customer.  I like the random layout.  This is quilted with the square spiral pattern.  I used tan fleece on the back.

This quilt was a customer quilt, I just did the quilting, using the Bayside pattern.  I usually like to keep the quilting pattern more simple, so it doesn't distract from the shirt emblems.  This quilt has a more traditional straight layout.  The red cornerstones are striking with the black sashing.

This next quilt is also a straight layout, quilted with the Saturn Swirls pattern.

And this quilt was quilted with a free-hand custom design.  Each block was quilted differently, going around the image on the shirt.

And lastly, this one is set in vertical rows.  It's quilted with the Honeycomb pattern.
