Schnibbles Reveille Quilted

A fellow blogger once said that quilting is like the frosting on a cake. I have to agree especially on this one! This quilting is called custom quilting with stitching in the ditch (SID), blocks, and two borders. I say this because I get emails from customers asking what is the difference between edge-to-edge and custom.

These pictures were taken yesterday when I just had a bit more to quilt. Today I was able to get it off the frame and bound for some evening hand stitching. This table topper is just too stinkin' cute! I can't wait for the receipient to see her gift.

Love it! I have made this quilt as well, but quilted it myself...yours is outstanding!

Oh, I do like this one - liked it before the custom work. You know, you totally have an eye for this quilting thing - you aced it. The fabric is very cheerful - as you know, I use table toppers all the time and I can see how this one is going to spice up any table you use it on. Enjoy this beauty! :o) Happy quilting!
