New Quilts to Share

A few months ago I got a new machine......A Prodigy. I love this machine, did I say I LOVE, LOVE my new machine. I've been quilting up a storm since I got her.She has a 14ft. table so I can now quilt any size quilt that I want. The stitch regulation is perfect and she handles wonderfully.
My husband says that she looks like a spider. What do you think? I think she's beautiful!!

The first quilt to get on the new machine was made by my customer, Alice, for her son and daughter-in-law. I did a pantograph on it called Surfs Up. She loved it. I love the texture that the panto gave to this quilt.

 Here's the back.....

 Next one is Ruth's Quilt. She is a self taught piecer and she's done a very good job. The panto that she chose for this one is Variegated Shells.  She hasn't seen it yet so I hope she'll like it.

Now that my friend Bren has posted about it, I can share the one that I'm the most happy about. This quilt will be raffled to help with the medical bills for a darling little girl who has Cystic Fibrosis. I was so happy to be able to be a part of this worthy cause. This quilt is custom quilted. It took me three weeks to finish it. A lot of ruler work and feathers but I had fun doing it. I'm just so grateful that it turned out well.

   I matched the bobbin thread to the top so that the back looks  sort of like a whole cloth quilt.

When Bren gets the information out about how to purchase tickets I'll share the link on my blog so stay tuned.

Thanks so much for visiting and please come back again,
