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!!
