A stack of quilts from Judy

Judy was busy finishing quilts during the cold months last winter and brought me this stack to be quilted.

So let’s see how they turned out, first we have a quilt which Judy called Bits and Pieces.
Bits & Pieces quilt
This quilt was quilted with the Dancing Violets pantograph by Patricia Ritter and appropriately we used a thread called Violet.

The next quilt is Gingham squares or Picnic (my photo is a bit blurry, but I think you get the picture.)
Picnic quilt
For Picnic we used a pantograph called Angel Wings by Jodi Beamish which I think also looks like Butterflies, fitting for a picnic quilt.  Quilted with a light purple thread called Tabriz Orchid.

Judy’s third quilt is a pattern called Can you spare a dime, which is made from 10 inch squares known as “dimes” or “layer cakes.”

For this pretty quilt we used the Chantilly Lace pantograph by Norma Sharp

Judy used a beautiful piece of variegated fabric for the back of the quilt which really shows off the quilting.

This last quilt Judy called Simple Floral.  I think Judy liked the fabric so much and couldn’t see cutting it all up, so she put a nice accent  and border on it and voila a Simply beautiful Simple Floral quilt.

Quilted with the Entangle pantograph by Hermione Agee, and a peachy/brown coloured thread called chestnut.

I think Judy is working on quilting through her stash and she sure made a good start with these quilts.
Be your own kind of beautiful.
