Like many of you, I follow many different blogs. But there is one I have been following for sometime now. Carol from Panama, has a blog called Postcards from Panama. If you haven't seen it, you must go visit her. She is a very talented lady and it really shows in the work she does.
Well, she also started reading my blog and also exploring my website. She had e-mailed me on several occasions and expressed how much she liked the longarm quilting that I do for my customers. She asked if I would like to quilt her Angels quilt that she has been working on.
I was thrilled. This quilt is just so bright, beautiful, and whimsical. You know the saying, "photos just don't do it justice". Well that was definitely true in this case. When the quilt arrived in my hands, it was breathtaking. It is a pattern from Mary Lou Weidman, another great quilter with a fantastic blog, go check it out.
Any way, here is where I stop talking and let you see the quilt and the quilting.
This is one of the Angels on the quilt. Carol requested some specific types of quilting and I think I filled her requests. It definitely needed to be quilted in a whimsical manner and I believe that I have achieved that. I love the hair and the cheeks on this one.
The heart of course is just darling. But you can see the inner border was done with a wonderful loop/ribbon effect.
This is another favorite angel. Crazy hair and halo.
You may or may not be able to see, but I quilted angels in a row on the outer borders. Click on the picture to enlarge.
Here is the entire quilt in all its glory! When it arrived back in Panama, from its long journey from the states, Carol wrote to me telling me she was thrilled. I am pleased and was really honored to work on this quilt. Thanks, Carol for the wonderful opportunity you gave me!

*** EDIT-- You really need to go over to Carol's blog. She has many more photos of this quilt and they were taken in natural light. Unfortunately, the day that I took my photos it was overcast here. Enjoy! ***
