Hi there! This is an interesting post from the point of view I will show you some examples of the different quilting tastes of my customers. Some of my customers like full on custom quilting, others like simple.
First up is Pauline's three quilts that she was very specific on very simple quilting.
These two quilts are both a feature fabric, in both cases roses, then Pauline has attach two borders. Pauline only wanted ditch stitching on the borders, then to quilt some of the outlines of the flowers. Pauline is fairly new to quilting, so had a few issues with attaching borders, hence some pulling in issues, but over all these are both very pretty quilts.
Next up is a panel fabric that Pauline has attached two rounds of borders. Again simple out line quilting.
I added some gold metallic thread for some bling! Next is a photo so you can see the outline quilting I did & for you backing lovers!
Next for an example of a customer who wanted a bit more quilting, this too is a panel that has been bordered.
Jill wanted me accentuate the features on this Whimsical panel as well as 'something fancy on the border'.
Isn't this a marvelous saying? I love it.
You may remember I quilted this same panel last year for Megan. It is the same panel, just a few more details, such as pieced flowers. See here for the post relating to this quilt.
So after all those examples, what do you like? Simple or custom?
