Quilt Show Quilts

Recently I found out that two quilts I custom quilted for a client took first and second place at the Northwest Quilt Show in Portland Oregon.  I am so delighted for my client - she does beautiful work and I am happy she is getting the acknowledgement she deserves.



Here she is with one of Judy Niemeyer's Mariner's Compass quilts.  She won a second place ribbon on this one.


















Here is a picture of the quilt on my machine.



A whole lot of feathers, line work and dense fills on this quilt.  And these quilts are not small!












On this stunning quilt she received a first place ribbon.  I have a whole blog post with lots of pictures if you want to see more of the details.

I really had fun quilting this one!















And I just finished up another one for her grandson.  This one is called Sabertooth Star.  A little different than the big medallions but the tiny detailing is still there.

















Lots of matchstick quilting went into this one.







Getting the quilting to turn around the corner was a challenge.  But I do like how it turned out.
















And turning the corners where the sashing met the outer borders was an even bigger challenge.








We didn't do a lot of fancy quilting on this one.  Because it was for a young man, we didn't want it to get too swirly.  Therefore, we made it all about the texture.






I don't think this one is going to any quilt shows but I do know my client is already thinking about future shows.  I am sure I will have many more beautiful quilts to share in the future!











The theme this week over at Val's is Quilt Shows.  So rather than link up an older post, I thought I would share this one.  It will be great to see what other quilts have been entered into quilt shows!  So much great inspiration!!

How does it work at the quilt shows? Do you get mentioned? My friend also quilts for others but she did not get a single note on the quilt hanging at the show.
