Custom Quilting

MooseQuilts
 This week I did some custom quilting.  I haven’t done too much of it lately.  This quilt was absolutely amazing!  It was a friend of mine has a daughter getting married.  She and sisters, nieces, son etc. made blocks that my friend assembled into a queen size quilt.  I’m sure some of you have done this before.  I haven’t seen any as amazing as theirs.  Here are a few of the 36 blocks.
I thought this one was fun.  I added flowers and butterflies in the quilting.
This one was made by my friend’s son. 

I like how the frame around the picture turned out.

My friend’s sister is an artist.  I love seeing what she comes up with!

This one I added some flowers to the basket.

This traditional block I added a nice design that I thought complemented the piecing.

The turtle represented the groom, so I came up with a more masculine design.

While I loved quilting this quilt and coming up with different designs that added to each block, I am glad I don’t do custom quilting very often.  I can’t handle quilts being on my quilt machine very long.  But it is signed, sealed, and delivered, and they love it so everything is great!

    I really like what you did on each block. I have enjoyed custom quilting but not while I am trying to come up with something different for each block. Once I have decided, though, then I think it is great fun and makes for a wonderful quilt.
