Janet’s quilts

A few of Janet’s quilts from January 2014.  The first is a Lemon-Grey baby quilt.
Quilted with the Spirals pantograph by Denise Schillinger.

Janet picked a great backing for this quilt.

I really like the pattern of this quilt and I  have a few grey and yellow fat quarters, I might just have to make one like this.

Text Me
A great name for this cute quilt - the background is all text neutrals.  Janet likes to collect text fabric, she also like red and white quilts.

Text me was quilted with a cream coloured thread and the Double Plume pantograph by Keryn Emmerson.

Janet used up some extra nine-patches in a rainbow of colours in the back of this quilt.

Christmas Quilt Along
This little cutie was a quilt along with Lori Holt of ‘Bee in my Bonnet’, I think Lori does one every Christmas.

Quilted with a light pink thread called Cotton Candy (yum) and the Shooting Star pantograph by Sue Schmieden.

Some fun detail in this quilt, rick-rack on the ginger-bread man, and a tab on the Christmas stocking, I had to be careful not to quilt that down.

Sweetwater Jelly Roll baby quilt
A baby quilt made from a jelly roll, a great idea, and we’re ready for the next baby to be born.

Quilted with the Paper Dolls pantograph  by Patricia E. Ritter.

A lovely complementary fabric on the back of this quilt.

Cotton Candy baby quilt
A great use of pink and neutral scraps, again I’m inspired and want to copy this quilt. 

Of course we used the light pink thread called Cotton Candy and the Spirals pantograph by Denise Schillinger is just the right complement to the squares.

Love the fabric Janet picked for the back of this baby quilt.

Base note placemats
Janet made these placemats for her cottage, in the style of the Base note quilt by Sarah Fielke, which you will find in Sarah’s book Hand Quilted With Love.

Being that they were for the sea-side cottage, we chose the Seaside pantograph by Kathie James and a very pale blue thread called Cloud.

Phew, Janet does keep me busy.  We usually meet every two weeks to sew and she always sends me home with quilts to long-arm.
