Lorie is one of my favorite clients. 2yrs ago she suffered a stroke but is still able to quilt. I love going and picking up her quilts and getting in a little visit; she is so sweet!

Lorie's grandson wanted a quilt for Christmas. He picked the fabrics and Lorie did the piecing.

Love these fabrics.

Lorie also did a bunch of table runners for gifts. I took her width of backing and instead of cutting it up for each runner, I put them all on at once.

So much easier than loading each runner separately!

I meandered the top floral one and for the daffodil one, we went with the panto Belladonna.

  Had to go with Holly and Poinsettia for the Christmas runner.

And Antique Lace on the last one.

Another favorite client is Nancy. She always does the funnies quilts. This first one was inspired by a denim jacket that was getting worn out.

Nancy took the jacket and built the quilt around it.

I quilted the panto on the quilt except in the embroidery. In that square I did a tight meander. And to just punch it up a notch, I did the quilting in a vivid red thread so it stood out more on the denim.

And this one. Hands down one of my favorite quilts Nancy has ever made.

Absolutely love.

For her grandson.

This last one of Nancy's, a stunner.

Looking forward to what Lorie and Nancy create in 2015!

Such amazing quilts and beautiful quilting! What a great idea to put all the runners on at the same time. What kind of backing did you use that was able to work for them all?
