Look What's Quilting

Our goal is to quilt 6-7 quilts each week.  With Nancy Cook out of the shop (busy traveling cross-country with husband, Bob), Nancy Watts and I are scampering to stay caught up, but so far (knock on wood) we're sticking to schedule.  Here are some of the quilts we quilted last week.  In addition to the pictured quilts, we constructed quilted 3 t-shirt quilts for customers (we never post those pics, in case they are surprise gifts)...

Marilyn Rauterkus, Omaha, cross-stitched this baby quilt for a great-grandbaby who is yet to be born. Marilyn has made several quilt tops and is waiting patiently for one of her grandchildren to marry and start a family. Marilyn is one of my husband's aunts, and I feel honored that she allows me to quilt her treasures. Marilyn chose to quilt this top with Flowers pattern in YLI monofilament thread.

Another baby quilt for a future great-grandbaby. Marilyn Rauterkus, Omaha, is creating a fairly large stash. Her grandkids better get busy :-) Marilyn chose to quilt this top with Hearts & Loops pattern in YLI monofilament thread.

Pat Trusty, Omaha, purchased this quilt kit at Kanesville in Council Bluffs two or three years ago. It was her first attempt at triangular borders. Pat chose to quilt it with Loops and Swirls pattern in Mother Goose thread by Signature.

A little over one year ago, Pat Trusty of Omaha attended our President's Day Mystery workshop where she constructed this gold, red and white Stars & Stripes throw quilt. The pattern is available for FREE on our website. Pat chose to quilt it with Stars & Loops pattern in Latte thread by Signature.
