Zen Quilt by Gerry

This “Zen” quilt made by Gerry B is a good example of how beautiful a simple quilt can be. The wonderful fabrics blend together well and make a very sophisticated statement. So I kept the quilting simple and did a pantograph called “Trellis Vine.” It’s a leaf and curl design which is very elegant and simple. I think it all worked out well!

Happy Quilting!

This sweet little quilt called out for flowers, so I stitched up a daisy pantograph called “Whoopsy Daisy” (which I got from Cyndy B – thank you Cyndy!). It is a fairly loose pattern and looks great as it crosses over the light and dark fabrics of this quilt.

Keep those quilts coming ladies!

A Quilt of One’s Own

Finally Lora made a quilt for herself! After making numerous quilts for other people, my friend – and very prolific quilter! – Lora made her self a quilt. It’s about time I say! And what soft and pretty colors. And Lora does know colors. In her spare time she is also a Mary Kay rep. I’m not sure she sleeps much between her full-time job, her quilting, and her MK business….not to mention kids (OK, so they are out of the house, but they are still her kids!) and a husband (he’s not out of the house!).

We decided that a Feather Meander Pantograph would add to the soft look and indeed it worked out perfectly!

Not Entirely a Quilt Slacker

Just so you don’t think I’m a complete slacker, I have been doing some quilting here and there. This beautiful tablerunner has a fun pantograph design on it called “Je’taime.” Marlene has made several of this design. Each one has been “two-sided” because the backside is done with a Christmas fabric…so two tablerunners in one! Great idea: reversible!

Happy quilting…and now…back to puppy duty.
