Two quilts by Janet

This is the second time Janet has made this modern baby quilt, the first was given as a gift and Janet liked it so much she decided to make another (for her baby quilt stash) which will inevitably be gifted as well.  The pattern is from Make it Modern a Better Homes & Garden Special Interest publication 2013.

This little quilt is custom quilted with straight line (as in the magazine).

Using up some of the bits of fabric from the front of the quilt, Janet enhanced the back with some back art.

You can see Janet’s similar baby quilt (the back is different) here.

The second quilt completed for Janet is called Garden Gate.

Janet decided on the Bountiful Feathers pantograph by Hermione Agee and a light green Glide  thread called celery.

I don’t have any notes on who this quilt was for, it might be for Janet’s home which is so beautifully decorated with her many beautiful quilts.
