    LibbyG got a reaction from Primitive1 in Dresden Plate   
    My customer pieced this using scraps from her stash.  She gave me a quilting design she found online.  I'd give credit to the quilter, if I knew who designed it.  The borders weren't showing so I used feathers and beadboard.  She used a 1/4 inch inner border and asked me to keep it straight.  Fortunately it was only a lap quilt.  I used So Fine and Bottom Line, my favorite threads when custom quilting.  And Hobbs 80/20.  DeLoa Jones' boomerang really came in handy to circle around the dresden plates.

    LibbyG got a reaction from Kwiltr in Two wallhangings   
    These were made by my reproduction customer.  She just chose two blocks she liked for the wall hangings and put them together.  She wanted her "Indigo in Baskets" customed. This was the first time I used a light thread in a feather wreath on a dark background.  It took me forever because I wanted the backtracks to be spot on.  (Most were!)  Then when I decided to put feathers in the baskets, I used matching thread as it went way faster!.
    Her "Flocks and Baskets" was so busy we just used a pantograph to give it movement.  So Fine and Bottom Line.  She provided warm and natural batting.

    I think those feather wreaths would have been difficult to see had they been stitched in matching thread.  Great job on both!

    A dealer I talked with said she used to take some tiny stitches, but they ended up working their way out, so she knots and burys her threads. I decided that wasn’t for me. I do not do show quilts. I take a few stitches in one direction then back over the stitches when I start and finish.

    I think if you pull your threads to the top, hold them for a second or two when you take your first stitches, then take 2-8 stiches backward and then forward, you won't have any nesting problems on the back.  You will be able to tell from the top if you are taking too many stitches from the build up of threads too.  Go with what looks pleasing.

    A friend pieced this quilt.  She only wanted light quilting and flat batting.  I used So Fine and Bottom Line.  Since I'm not really creative, I googled the animals and looked at their backgrounds.
