Marie's quilts

 Annette brought me these quilts that her sister, Marie, made. The first quilt had a pajama theme. It is so sweet, it makes me smile! Love the pjs!

Marie asked for custom quilting. Each themed block has a different background filler.

Aren't these adorable! She even used a special stitch to sew the pom poms on the heels. Love it.!

I was going to avoid quilting on the pajama appliques, but I ended up stitching a few lines over the patterns to outline them and make them less puffy. I followed along the zigzagged lines so it would be as invisible as possible.

Could these boxers be any cuter!

I quilted continuous curves on all the squares in the outer border and stippled around the embroidered words.

The second quilt made use of this gorgeous birdcage fabric.

I quilted tiny swirls and pebbles on the bird fabric and a wood grain pattern on the brown borders with some scrolly swirls on the colored strips to give it a window feel.

And piano keys on the outer border to bring the whole design together.

Thanks so much Marie!
