    M sent me this quilt for LAQ. She made this as a farewell gift to her Pastor. There are photos, embroidery, and signature blocks from congregation members.....I know how special this quilt is....I think many of us church members know that feeling of seeing a beloved Pastor leave ....so I know all the LOVE that went into the process of making this quilt.

    She asked that I place doves, hearts and crosses in the Side setting triangles other than that I could do anything else. I would never quilt over pictures...signature blocks ...or special embroidery...so I stippled in the white areas and outlined the photos...loops in the border.

    I quilted this on my INNOVA. No computer or pantograph quilting. I also used HOBBS poly down batting.

    Thanks for looking!

    What a thoughtful gift for the pastor. Nothing like everyone being involved in getting a piece of the pie. Considerate and very appropriate idea.

    Charisma... do you ever feel that the quilts have too much quilting? They look so flat and stiff sometimes when there is ALOT of stitching... does that happen? Your stitches look so "planned" and very neat.

    I think this is all so subjective. I like all quilting...if I am going to snuggle with a couch quilt ....like in my house our living room quilts all have flannel tops..minkee backs and they are used every single day...I quilted an all over loose design ...because we want to feel the comfort of the material...and we want to drape and be soft.

    If I am making a wall hanging or a show quilt....it should be quilted pretty heavily...it needs to lay flat and straight or it won't hang or show well..

    I do try to plan all of my quilting....I think the quilting has to match the intent of the quilt and quilter. if it is a comfort quilt it needs to be comfortable.....a show quilt isn't going to be used on the couch with your kids and dogs..so it can be stiff....Above all I want to make my client happy...I NEED to know if my client likes heavy quilting...light quilting....if they hate feathers ect.... I try to meet those needs.

    Thanks for asking...and for looking!
