Peggy had me quilt these 4 fun little Christmas quilts. One for each of her adult children and one for herself. They have seen the quilt tops, so I'm not spoiling any surprises here. :)
This first one I did free-motion feathers. I used a Holiday variegated thread which really turned out nice with her festive colors.
...and the back. The quilting on this one goes along with the design in one of the light fabrics.
Quilt #3 was curly-Q's and holly leaves. See where I got the idea for curly-Q's??
And #4 was loops and holly leaves.
These were the last quilts I did on my old longarm machine. That's right- I purchased a new longarm about a month ago! (I'm really good at keeping this blog up to date huh?) It's a Nolting Fun Quilter 20". I think I have finally gotten to the point where I'm comfortable with it. It takes a while to get used to the feel of a different machine- much like driving a different car. Perhaps I will share my new machine with you in another post. But for now, I have more holiday quilting to do!
