Dinorama T-rex on Roller Skates from Night Owl Quilting

I had so much fun adding a little custom quilting to Cindy's Dinorama quilt.  The pattern is fun design from Art Eat Quilting Co.

Cindy and I couldn't find a pantograph that we really liked so Cindy gave me the go ahead for some custom quilting.  I can honestly say I haven't quilted reptile skin before!

I stitched in the ditch around the dinosaurs and the features like their eyes and teeth. 

The topographical freehand pattern seemed like the perfect idea for the linen background.

Sweeter Than Honey from Crayon Box Quilt Studio

 Since practically the beginning of my quilting journey I've had the plan to eventually make a quilt for each of my 4 siblings.  As with so many people this past year, I've thought long and hard about what I want to accomplish in my future and decided that these quilts needed to happen now, not in who knows how many years from now.

This first sibling quilt was for my oldest sister Tina, who also happens to be a quilter.  Long ago I started a quilt that I originally thought would be for her, but later decided it ...

Fancy Forest from Night Owl Quilting


I think this is the 4th Fancy Forest quilt that I have quilted for Reneta.  This one is extra special though.   It has lovingly been made for Reneta's first grandchild set to arrive any day.  Reneta dug into her Ombre Confetti fabric that she had been saving for just the right occasion.


Reneta always requests my freehand woodgrain quilting for this pattern, and I never get tired of the finished look.  I love all these cute animals, and check out the minky added to the bunny ears!

Amy's Habs Slabs from Night Owl Quilting

Go Habs Go!  Amy sent this fun slab block quilt that she made for some Montreal Canadiens fans in her life.  Isn't it amazing what a pile of "scraps" can become?  

 This quilt weighs in at a whopping 74" x 110" and I think Amy may have invented a new quilt size - the family couch cuddler!  I can see the whole family cuddled up on the couch to cheer on their favorite team with enough quilt for everyone!


I suggested my freehand all over topographic quilting to add a nice even texture.   Doing a freehand design, allowed me to ...

Sherry's Fancy Foxes from Night Owl Quilting

Sherry sent this fantastic little quilt that she made with the fox blocks from Elizabeth Hartman's Fancy Fox pattern.   As with most of the of the fox quilts that have come into my studio the request was for my freehand woodgrain quilting.

I love how inventive Sherry was with the layout.  Sherry has also wowed me with her ability to mix and match unexpected fabrics effortlessly.  It is a bit hard to see in the photos, but the grey background fabric is a botanical print..  There are larger leaves at the top and smaller denser leaves at the bottom ...

A Pair of Bjorn Bear Quilts from Night Owl Quilting

Reneta used Elizabeth Hartman's Bjorn Bear pattern  and adapted it to make these two sweet baby quilts.  She requested my freehand woodgrain pattern and I think they turned out just great.  Reneta requested that I quilt over the appliqued name as well.

Three Quilts for Lucky Kids from Night Owl Quilting

I had the pleasure of quilting three lovely quilts destined for children special to my clients.  The first is this cute monkey themed baby quilt made by Tracy.  She asked for custom quilting to highlight the stars.

Swirls in the border and some continuous curves in the background did the job.

The second quilt for Tracy contained some "vintage" fabric so she asked for an all over design for added strength and stability.  We chose a freehand "3 an E" design that I could quilt in a scale that suited the size of the quilt.

This last quilt was made ...

Late Start to a Busy Day from Allen Quilts

Today and tomorrow are my son’s days off so I’m not keeping my two littles and have my days filled with my own activities. However, I really overslept this morning. On the to do list is a workout, paperwork for our oilfield business, some stitching on a commissioned quilt for a client, and cooking up… Continue reading Late Start to a Busy Day
