Real Men Quilt!

I have some wonderful male quilters as customers! And because I am trying to be a "good girl" and work on customer's quilts to help me get caught up from time off during oral surgery, etc...I thought I would introduce you to one of my clients!

Jacque and Linda winter in Florida, and summer in Maine. Sounds lovely, doesn't it? I would love to go to Maine some day...it sounds so peaceful!

I met Jacque through the net, and I have quilted a few quilts for him. He does spectacular work....all pieced by HAND! Amazingly even stitches, and his color sense is terrific! Just look at what he did for the border of this dresden plate:

His latest quilt is in shades of blues...I love this quilt!

I finished the quilting last night, and it was hard to get detail shots when it is dark out. The full quilt shot turned out really blurry so I hope you can see the detail from these other shots.

I especially like the texture of the back! Way to go Jacque,I can't wait to see what you come up with next!

OH MY GOSH Bonnie! The back of that blue quilt is SPECTACULAR! I absolutely love what you did! That is my kind of quilting. Nice and dense, and a beautiful pattern. And I love his dresden plate. I have to show my friend who loves dresden plate quilts this. I love the curved pieces with the pointy ones to give it a different shape!

Bonnie the quilts are wonderful and your quilting really compliments them.

I LOVE Maine - Keith's dad was from Portland and we had the good fortune to take two trips there with his Dad.

Your customer's quilts are spectacular and the quilting just sets them off so nicely! Great work for both of you.
