Functional Custom for Stitchery & Applique Quilts

 Most of my customers don't want heavy custom quilting on quilts they have made as gifts for others.  They want the quilts to be soft, drapable and huggable.   Some of these quilts are for children, so I can understand that they don't want the quilt to be heavily quilted like a "show stopper" would be.

Here are two quilts I have recently quilted ... they are functional and pretty without having too much quilting on them.

Next time you make a quilt ... think about how you want to use the quilt and what type of quilting would suit your purposes. 

I hope you enjoy these beautiful quilts ... I know I loved quilting them.

Happy quilting for now ... Jane x
