Machine Quilting: Rustic Quilts

Betsi is a brand new quilter and she has taken to it like a fish to water (pun slightly intended, keep reading). Betsi signed up for the beginning quilting classes at Cottonpickers and she immediately had the confidence to create quilts for both of her boys for Christmas within the last month or so... Overachiever, just saying.
 Both quilts were made using the Tile Tango pattern by Atkinson Designs. Betsi tweaked the size of both to fit her boys needs and used panels she found instead of the Nine Patches in the squares like the pattern shows.
 The first quilt featured panels with bears so Betsi asked me to quilt alternating pine trees and pine cones in the tan squares.
 The next quilt had more camping themed fabrics so Betsi asked to have canoes and fish quilted in the tan squares of this one.
On both quilts I filled in the rest of the areas with my All Over Leaves pattern which works well in masculine quilts like these.

So I think Betsi is hooked onto quilting and for some of her first quilts she did a great job, what do you think?

  1. Betsi did a fabulous job on her quilts; and you did great on the quilting too. Her boys will be thrilled, as would any young man.
