    Here's pictures of the quilt that I just finished. It took me most of a week to complete the quilting. I had a hard time doing the embroidered blocks since they had a heavy stabilizer left in them, and my monofilament thread kept breaking. It also dulled the needle, which meant shredded variegated thread off and on. All in all, I think it turned out pretty well and the customer was very happy with it. The only drawback - she has another identical one that she wants me to do!

    It's beautiful I love the variegated thread and especially the pattern in the borders. Yep, if I were her, I'd send you another. :)

    You did a wonderful job of quilting in spite of the difficulties. Was that embroidery done on a machine or by hand? It's very beautiful!

    The embroidery was done by machine, but it does look like it was done by hand. I don't know the name of the design set.

    I used rulers and free motion. Love the rulers - wish there were more varieties!

    It is a beautiful quilt and lots of work on the quilting. You might suggest a little higher price since it took so long.
    She should be very thankful you were patient enough to keep going. The results are beautiful. Pat yourself on the back.
