customer {custom quilted} christmas projects ~

MarveLes Art Studios Blogs 3 Comments

hello everyone ~

i’m thinkin’ many of you are happily ensconced in multiple projects for christmas, huh?  … me… too!  not only my own, but for others, too, at least on a limited basis.

i’ve taken on a few custom orders lately; these two smaller quilts for my friend mary, featuring a navy blue, red and green with white ribbons… and i decided to add gold thread to bring out the fabric’s gold stars, and for the first time, i tried a bit of double needle stitching, free motion style, in the dark background of the trumpet wall hanging ~ fun!  

i also added lyrics from some favorite christmas hymns for the quilting, and because one was a table runner, it looks backwards here, but that way everyone on each side of the table will be able to read that side…

mary will finish the bindings, so it’s a treat not to have to finish that and i can move into the next project!  and georgia is hangin’ out, happy not to move!  at least for the moment.. happy for the {rare} moment to be relaxing with  brian in the chair!

happy holiday {prep} days to you!

  1. I just read about the twin needle FMQ just before I came to visit you and it really lends itself to the kinds of table runners you do. Brava.
