Three quilts by Terry

I cannot remember why Terry called this quilt blackbird, is it the name of the fabric line, perhaps the pattern, maybe it’s the little blackbirds in some of the prints?  I’m racking my brain and trying to see if google has an answer.  Maybe it’s just the name she liked, anyways, this is Blackbird quilt.

Blackbird is quilted with the Rambler Rose pantograph by Meredith England.

And backed with a gorgeous floral print.

I have to let you in on a great technique that Terry sometimes uses on her quilt backs.  If she needs to piece the back and when some matching is needed to line up the prints, Terry will insert a bit of a complementary fabric, as an accent or zinger so that she doesn’t need to match exact match the prints.  This makes the ‘mismatch’ gentler on the eye.

Next is a Figtree quilt.  The subway tile arrangement of these fabrics is particularly pleasing to me.

We use the Flowing Feathers pantograph by Hermione Agee.

Another large floral print with an accent inserted to break up the prints.

Quilt number three is Courtney’s baby’ quilt, a delightful nine-patch with sashing.

Delicately quilted with the Angel Wings pantograph by Jodi Beamish.

I love how she pieced this back.
