I recently finished quilting a large John Deere themed quilt on the longarm for a customer. I just love how it turned out.
I was given permission from Sharon the quilt maker to choose whatever I wanted to quilt on this piece. I knew I wanted to do a custom quilting job that would accent each block and the border separately. I could have done an edge-to-edge simplified quilting job, but I wouldn't have had the opportunity to practice different quilting motifs if I had done it that way.
This quilt also offered the challenge of finding quilting themes that were more suited for a guy, rather than the feathers and hearts and flowers that I have been perfecting on other quilts. I ended up doing some stipling, some curves and a lot of pebbling, and I imagined building rock walls while quilting.

I was so happy to get this large project done fairly quickly and the quilter was thrilled with the job! It will be a Christmas gift for her son.
