Too Much Fun!

So ....  I met Pam in the quilt shop and she asked me to quilt a couple of fat quarters and another half yard piece.  "Something swirly, please."

I love having such freedom!  After doodling on a test piece to make sure the machine tension was just right, I quilted these swirling flowers densely over this fabric.  The variegated thread was perfect.  It looked like it changed to every color in this piece.

Here's the back side.  It won't show on her finished project.

There's also a blue FQ.  This brilliant blue is washed out in the photo's lighting, but it's really pretty.  I decided to quilt the 2 FQ's with a more open quilting design to provide a little contrast between these and the first piece.
Finally, here's the pink FQ.  The variegated threads show up well here.
Here are the backs for these smaller pieces.  My customer emphasized that she didn't mind if I used up a couple of bobbins since the backs won't show.

This was so much fun to do.  Easy.  Fast.  And what a sense of accomplishment.  I can't wait to see her finished gift made with these quilted fabrics.

Enjoy your day!
