rachel's pinwheel quilt...

back in march... i left a comment on her post...

"as for quilting i'd mail it off to julie and ask her to quilt it with her loopy allover design on her big 10ft frame ;-) ... she'd say yes because she loves you... and frames do a wonder with a million seams and make it like they aren't even there."

and she did... and i quilted it... and here it is....


it was the first quilt i did that wasn't mine...
and i'm super happy about how it turned out...


just was a bit hard to put it back in a box and ship it away!!

but she loves it...


lets just say she sent me a super long e-mail with lots of thank yous...
that started with
it's here!!! it's here!!! it's here!!!
and went on and on
and ended with
and it's just how i imagined it would be!!! and i heart you!!!


can't get much better than that.

i also finished quilting a baby quilt this weekend...


i used a panel on one side...


with her name embroidered on it...

i'd like to say she is named after me... but she isn't...


and the other side is pieced... back in the day i made 4 matching baby quilt tops... so i'd be ready... and then they sat..and sat... i wanted to use one for this but it was square and the panel was a rectangle... so i added flannel triangles to the sides and chopped some parts of it off... and here it is... i really like how it turned out..


and just for fun... more pictures of my quilting...

stars on my red white and bold quilt...
loops on my disappearing nine patch...

and my one attempt at hand quilting... i really love how it looks but it took forever!!

I love that cupcake fabric on the back of your disappearing nine-patch!

The quilting on Rachel's quilt is beautiful. I love how you did thread changes. My friend has a long arm quilting machine, and I know how time consuming thread changes can be, but it's so worth the effort. It's gorgeous!

Doris said...

Just curious what you charge to do this quilting...the same loopy-meander...per square inch/foot, however you charge. I may have some work to send your way if you are looking for it!

Wow...Julie...everything is beautiful! And I didn't know you did machine quilting...how did I miss that?!

Michelle said...

Rachel's quilt is beautiful. You can leave that message on my blog. ;-) I love all of the other quilts you did too. The panel/piecing baby quilt is really neat. I have never seen that. I am going to be happy to say I knew you when. You are definitely a star!
