Tickle and Hearts in bloom.....

My new customer Nicola brought me 4 quilts a few weeks ago now, and I have been a busy bee quilting them for her. 
 
Following on from my previous post, the "Tickle" pantograph does looks great on a smaller quilt too.....  I love purple especially purple batiks.  It has reminded me about my purple batik quilt, which is on our camper at the moment, I will have to post some photographs of it soon, which was actually my first quilt I ever quilted with my longarm machine. 
 
 
The next one has some lovely hand embroidered sayings worked into a couple of the blocks.  The quilt is pieced from a Moda layer cake called "Bliss" and has been quilted with the "Bush berries" pantograph.
 
 
 
I completely agree ......
 
This beautiful one, has lots of hand embroidered blocks, and some gorgeous appliqued butterflies and flowers.  This must have taken quite some time to make.  I have quilted it with the "Hearts in bloom" design in a very subtle silver thread. I always feel that my photographs never truly reflect the beauty in some quilts, this is one of them.  I really love it.  I believe that it was either a block of the month, or a kit. 
 
 
 
I will save photographs of the 4th quilt for another post, it is another great quilt.
