Midweek Makers #246

 Welcome to another Midweek Makers party - so glad you're here!

It's time to announce the winner of the Quilter's Project Planner book from the book tour last week. Congratulations to Chris Lewinski! We're hoping to see several of your quilts here on Midweek Makers next year - have fun planning!

My share this week are these two client quilts I just finished. The first one has a combo of two pantographs, a leaf and a rose. The client wanted the roses to land in the open spaces between the stars, which required major redrawing of the rose pantograph.

I don't have a computer on my machine, so this requires paper and pencil, plus a copy machine. And as you can see, they landed just right!

Next up was a Laura Heine collage featherweight wall size quilt.

Crosshatching in the cream background, outline stitching around the flowers, and some straight line fill on the table area. Just giving some quilting ideas if you ever make one of these.

Yesterday was the First Day of Fall, which was perfect timing for the launch of my new wall hanging, Pumpkin Peek-a-Boo. I'm seeing lots of fall colors, and last week's Midweek Makers was no exception. 

How about these cute jack-o-lanterns from Patchouli Moon Studio?

This hexi stars quilt from Canadian Needle Mama?

Or this crumb quilt over at Marsha's Spot?

And now it's your turn - come share what you're working on!

  1. Congrats to your customers on beautiful quilts. Thank you for the linky party.

  2. Thank you Susan for showing my Hexicon Stars piece. A couple more rows have been added and it is a wonderful project overall for using larger scraps.
    Now if only I could quilt it like you!

  3. I like that Sewing machine collage quilt. Thanks for featuring my Jack O' Lanterns quilt.

  4. Fun eye candy this week. I guess I should be getting out my fall quits. Lovely quilting with the rose falling in just the right place. FYI -- it might have been easier to do by drawing than by fiddling with the computer. On the other hand, I do very basic quilting with my computer, I bet mine would do a lot more.

  5. Really pretty quilts! The first quilt looks so fluffy and cuddly! The name of the batting I use escapes me..... You've shared some fun photos and the participants also shared some wonderful projects!

  6. Your quilting is so beautiful, well done!

  7. I was shocked to see my crumb quilt featured. Thanks so much!
    I can not get the knack of quilting....barely straight lines.

  8. Your quilting for your customers is perfect. Well done!

  9. WOW, Susan -- very impressed with how you were able to adjust and manipulate that design for your client's quilt. After resizing, did you still quilt it from the back of the frame with the laser light, or did you transfer the design onto the quilt top somehow so you could see where you were on the quilt top as you were quilting?

  10. Lovely job on your clients quilts!


Thank you so much for just made my day!
