I love to create my own interpretations of traditional quilts, often in modern, fresh colors. But I also take on custom orders and sometimes that means a client who has very specific ideas and just doesn't have the means to create them on their own.
I have one repeat customer that has challenged me to make interpretations of Disney and childhood characters. These are not something I would make for resale if not for the custom request.
Borders are added to complement the embroidered centres.
Timon was a challenge because he is so small compared to the other characters. His details were added with a fine tipped permanent marker.
The techniques used in these 3 quilts are easily transferred to any pictoral quilt. Quilting enhances whatever you decide to do as you can see the different textures added by the quilting on the Lion King quilt especially.
Custom quilts continue to challenge me with new techniques and new ways to think about how I put a quilt together, from the fabrics to the final quilting. Hope you enjoyed these!
