Variety of patterns in today's quilts

The lime and black quilt is for  a boy and the pattern chosen was the geometric not square e2e machine quilting pattern. Leaf meander is one of the KoolKat budget quilting patterns and here it can seen on applique.  Edge to edge quilting will go over applique blocks without affecting the design if the colour of thread is appropriate.  Plush has been used on the dump trucks quilt as it resembles wheels, while happy times has been used on the flannelette cot quilt at the bottom of this post.

Quilt from Roma and prices for 2016/7

This Janette's quilt from Roma - she likes close or intense quilting - here we are using her choice of the alfresco e2e machine quilting pattern.  From July 1, due to increasing operating costs, we have increased the budget pattern range to $3.30 per square foot, and our basting service is now half of that price.  Our standard pattern prices remain the same, and have been unchanged since 2011.  We continue to try to find cost savings and efficiencies wherever we can to avoid increasing prices.  However, we find the utilities such as electricity, council rates, etc do not share this outlook.
