Laurie outdid herself yet again. I think these are all quilts from the Cresco Ladies. She took them and made them SHINE!! Laurie is such a talent.
To prove my point look at what she did with this pinwheel quilt.
The quilt has nine blocks and Laurie worked specialty stitches into all of them.
All of the quilting she did is very small. It looks great!
Here’s the backing…
You can see the texture Laurie added with her quilting.
Here are more of the blocks…
If you someday get a longarm and want quilt tops to practice on, let me know and I’ll set you up.
Working on charity quilts is a great opportunity to hone your skills as a longarmer.
Obviously, Laurie is already a talent.
I’ve said it before and those of you who struggle with machine quilting have agreed that one of the hardest parts is coming up with the idea of what motif to use.
Because of that, I’ve included photos of all of the blocks. I think Laurie has some great ideas.
Here is quilt #2 from Laurie…Laurie tried some unique designs in each section of this as well.
It is fun to see all of the various treatments.
I have to admit to loving the feathers on the top green section.
She found the perfect backing for it too!!
Quilt #3 is a panel quilt…
Laurie found the perfect backing.
The variety of machine quilting designs can be seen from the back.
Here is quilt #4.
This one got a wiggly cross hatch design in the center and custom quilting in the borders.
I sure hope a cat lover gets this one with the cute cat prints in it.
Laurie must have had a lot of this print as it made its way into the backs of several quilts. It’s a versatile print that works nicely.
The last quilt of the day is this cute Peter Rabbit quilt. Laurie had fun with this one!! She quilted this one densely.
I love the big circle design on the light green.
Here is the backing. The great quilting doesn’t show up the best on the colorful backing fabric…but it’s still there!!
Thanks so much, Laurie, for taking these quilts and making them shine. Thanks to the Cresco ladies for making all of the cute little tops.
