Jackie brings her quilts to me from Greensboro. She booked a couple of weeks on my calendar and brought me a bunch at one time.
She made this fun quilt on a quilting cruise. Doesn't that sound like a great time!
This quilt was from a Karen Kay Buckley class. I am still in awe of her circles.
Another of her beautiful applique wall hangings. It is called Bittersweet Briar from Kim Dielh's patterns. It is a good thing that I had a good look at this photo too. Can you see the missing line? Check out the center background in the lower right corner. I'm glad I caught this. I was able to pop the quilt back on the frame and fix it before she got here.
Beautiful circles again?! Need I say more?
This last quilt was made from two batik panels that Jackie bought when she was in Bali. Hand dyed. Yum!

I had a lot of fun quilting Kelly's Asian quilt. All she asked for was custom. She left the rest to me.
I had to break out the invisible thread on this one. I don't tend to use invisible thread much. I know quilters who swear by it and always use it for stitch in the ditch work. I usually just match background colors, but the fabrics were different enough on the outer fans that I was afraid the thread would show up too much.
I happened to have a cone of Magnifico gold thread that I got with my APQS George. I have been waiting for just the right quilt and it was perfect for this!
