Three quilts by Judy

Bits and Pieces Floral is the name of the first of three.

 Judy decided that this floral quilt should be quilted with the Bellflower pantograph by Patricia E. Ritter, we used a green coloured variegated thread called Forest, which I think nicely blends the floral into the mustard coloured border.

You can get a nice look at the pantograph pattern on the back of this quilt.

And here it is looking pretty with some of my garden flowers.

Bits and Pieces Autumn is the name appropriately chosen for this second quilt.

 For the Autumn quilt, Judy chose the Falling Leaves pantograph by Dave Hudson, with a rust coloured thread.

Doesn’t this quilt look pleasant beside the Lion’s Head?

Java a great name for this eye-catching quilt.

 Java is quilted with a pantograph called Hot Cocoa by Apricot Moon Designs, I imagine swirls of steam coming off a hot cup of Joe.  We used a medium brown thread, which looks magnificent in the borders and on the back of this quilt.

Judy’s been busy.

A quilt for a baby girl

Janet made this little cutie for a future baby girl, another baby quilt to add to her stash of baby quilts for her immediate family to give as gifts to their friends as babies come into their world.

Quilted with the delightful Popcorn pantograph by Jodi Beamish and a cream coloured thread.

Janet used extra bits of the quilt fabric to add some zing to the back of the quilt.
