More photos.

I am not sure why the pictures didn't all load before so lets try again.  Here is the photo of the swag and the lint.
Here is the photo of the peach octagon.  The quilting really pops on this fabric.  Lots of nice detail.

My next post will be about my newest organizational find and all the stuff I am able to keep in it. 

Photos Venetian Tile

Here are some detail shots of the quilting done on Venetian Tile quilt.  Here is one of the small squares.

The black border has a feathered swag with a heart.  The lint was a problem showing up on the black fabric.

Jan picked up the quilt today and she loved it.  I am so happy.  I really enjoy machine quilting and then seeing the reactions of others when they see the quilt.

Venetian tile quilt done

I finished quilting my first customer's quilt.  Venetian tile.  I had a lot of fun quilting it.  I repeated several different motifs in the center of the octogans done in purple thread.  In the small diamonds I did a melon motif around the seams.  In the peach half octagons I did the same motif, melons around the seams with a curly-cue in the centers of the wedges.  The focus fabric outside border has a meandering leaf pattern done in a peach color.  The outside black border has a scalloped swag pattern with feathered plumes on the inside and at the upper points a heart motif.   The black borders around the octogans where outlined 1/4" inside in black.  It turned out well I think,  I hope that when Jan comes to pick it up that she likes it. 

Photos to follow.
