    Recent Commissioned quilts completed:) Moons in the Windows and African Queens.

    I was asked to make some quilts for a friend. She chose the patterns and I bought the necessary templates and the pattern for the Moons in The Window quilt as I would likely use them again. She bought everything else but the thread. I did the meandering quilting on both in Superior's clear thread. I helped here with her fabric selection and charged her the "family" rate, she gave me a substantial tip that brought it in line with what others might have charges for a twin and over sized double. We chose Kaufman backings at L and M Fabrics in Anaheim. Needless to say we were both overjoyed with the results. The African Queen was a block of the month from my guild a few years ago.

    WOW. Both are BEAUTIFUL. Love them both but the "The African Queen" is stunning. Would love to make a lap quilt for my friend from this pattern. Where can you find the pattern please? Is it paper pieced? Super work. BrendaK

    Silly me. It took me a few minutes to figure out that the first one was the African queen. Both are very nice. How did you like working with the clear thread? Did you use it on the top and also the bottom?

    I have good luck with Superior or Connecting Threads clear or smoke color poly thread and I used Bottom Line ( a fine ) for the bottom.
