Another finish and the grand finale for the wedding quilt

I put in another long studio day and finished the double wedding ring quilt for my customer's daughter. Now I remember why I had decided to NOT do custom anymore... Oh well, I have three to go, so I'll go back to no custom jobs when they're done. I have spent a week on this quilt!

Ta da! The customer did not want quilting on the colored parts of the quilt. Also, she didn't want feathers everywhere, so I did a leafy pattern in the centers and melons. I'm not wild about them, but she should be happy.

One border treatment

One corner. It is perfectly square, but looks wonky because I am holding it out for the picture.

Bottom border

Leaves and ditch stitched arcs

Top corner, (taken upside down)

Cream batik backing

Yikes! I dislike plain backs...they show all the wobbles and mistakes.
While I did the free motion quilting on the wedding quilt, the computerized machine helped me finish another Christmas quilt for a customer. It is all flannel and very soft.

Pretty autumnal fabrics in a rail fence setting. Nice!

Panto: Twinkling leaves.
It has this cute puppy backing, too. What's not to like?!
Mr Wazoo quilted number eleven of the twelve quilts of Christmas today. He will be gone tomorrow visiting his Mom in South Carolina, so we'll have to wait until Thursday to celebrate them all being completed. Here is number eleven.

Same pattern, different fabrics. If it ain't broke, don't fix it! All the quilts are pretty, thanks to her selection of Kaffe Fassett fabrics.

Panto: Flower Festival

A pieced back, but not Paris this time.

At the end of the day, I loaded my quilt for tomorrow. It is a pieced quilt of all white fabrics, with a white back. The customer made this for her daughter, who selected the color palette (or lack of color palette!). It is obvious the girl does not have dogs or cats...and is very clean and tidy. I'm sure it will be lovely, but I'd be afraid to have it on my bed. One of the fabrics is a soft white corduroy.

The classy snow white quilt.
My faithful servant posed by the wedding quilt before we quit for the day. She is such a good girl, waiting patiently for the work to be done so we can play fetch with her lamb toy. She got her wish after supper, and is now resting quietly before going to bed. Life is good!
