Linda's Diamond Quilt from Crayon Box Quilt Studio


My customer Linda recently brought me this beautiful Brown, Black and Gray diamond quilt to stitch up for her. She told me that she made this pattern once before for a charity raffle and always regretted giving it away so she decided to make another one for herself.  
  
 She chose to do an asymmetrical finish for the borders.
This is the photo I took once it was loaded on my frame. 
 
 Her color placement and balance is fabulous and her piecing skills are near perfection. Every point was spot on.
 
I love working on projects like this one....where the ...

Carol's T-Shirt Quilt from Crayon Box Quilt Studio

Carol is a new customer and she brought me this t-shirt quilt to stitch up for her granddaughter.
We agreed that a medium size meander was the right design choice for this. Glide Cool Gray 3 thread was used on the top and a pale Gray So Fine thread was used in the bobbin.
I really like some of the shirts that were included in this quilt.  The Reeses's guy in the above photo and the Seven Dwarfs seen here are a couple of my favorites.  It's very rare these days to see anything Disney with the dwarfs ...

Charmaine's 2 Table Runners from Crayon Box Quilt Studio

The final few weeks of last year found me busy with the usual December craziness.....both kids' birthdays and all the craziness that surrounds Christmas.  Having a child who still believes in Santa (the older one has also yet to utter any suggestion that he knows the truth) is fun but exhausting.  The gift wrapping had to happen at a fast pace while they were in school, we had to remember to move our elf Twinkle every night and we had to set our alarm clock for midnight on Christmas Eve so we'd get up and get the gifts ...

Colleen's Santa Panel Quilt from Crayon Box Quilt Studio

Though I have a few more customer quilts completed to show you, this will be the last post of 2020.  Considering how difficult these past 9+ months has been overall for everyone, I just want to end this year on a sweet note. 
 
My customer Colleen made this sweet Santa panel quilt for herself and asked me to add the finishing touch to it for her.
 
The vintage scene reminds me of many of the images of Santa that I remember from my childhood. She also added a couple of simple borders on the panel to make it a nice ...

Susan's Sailboats Quilt from Crayon Box Quilt Studio

My friend Susan worked on this adorable sailboat quilt for quite a while. I'd hear about it when she brought me other tops to quilt for her. I was looking forward to seeing it when it finally came my way for it's finishing touch.
    
I was excited when she called to book it on my schedule.  This is the "before" quilting photo.
 
In process.
She made this quilt for the daughter and son-in-law who own a sailboat.  Isn't it fabulous!
The Waterworld panto was her design choice. It adds the perfect feel for the pieced blocks. The ...
