Finish it up Friday ....

Last week I showed you my first customer quilt that I had finished.  Yesterday I returned it to the lady and I am happy to say that she was absolutely thrilled!!!!  It was such an amazing feeling and the thought of being able to make money from something that I enjoy is just great.
 
Here's a couple of shots I found on my phone that shows the back of the quilt - I love how the actual quilting stands out more from the back.


 
 
So my finish for this week are some longarm quilted samples.  I have been meaning to do these since I got the machine last July but am now happy that I left them this long because, of course, my skills have increased.  These are all done freehand on my HandiQuilter Avante HQ18.
 








And another happy moment from this morning, which I will share with you here because I think you may appreciate it more than my children, was that I had some comments on these samples from Angela Walters herself on my Instagram feed!!!!  I think there was little yelp of joy from me!! x

Linking up with Amanda-Jean over at Crazy Mom Quilts.

  1. That is beautiful quilting on the customer quilt and your samples are fabulous! What a great idea to show your customers an idea of your quilting skills and an idea of their available choices and a way to imagine how designs would look on the quilt.

  3. Congratulations on delivering the quilt to your customer and having them be thrilled with the finish. It is always a lovely feeling to make something that is so appreciated, and there really is nothing like making money on something that is a joy to create. And whoo! I love how Angela is so friendly and I totally understand the squealing. I may have made my husband come verify in the past... ;)

  6. I'm not surprised your customer was thrilled - the quilting looks so great (and thanks for the back shot: it's always the best way to see the quilting). I love the samples - have just spent ages trying to pick my favourite!

  7. Congratulations on a beautiful finish! And I totally get it about Angela...I once had a fabric designer ask me if she could use pictures of a quilt I made with her fabric on her Flickr page and I had a fangirl fit!
