A 1600 Quilt

I am a sucker for spirals, and I especially love this panto as it fills the gaps left by the round spirals so well.  I'm not really a fan of the 1600 quilts. But I just love the way my customer made this one with the blues and random yellow squares.  So striking!

Sweet Freehand Hearts

This is Teri's and she will actually get to keep this one for herself.
 Since the edges are left raw, and we needed to keep the edges free so they can fray when washed, I went around each one with freehand echoed hearts. I love it!  I was inspired by Bethanne Nemish's hearts on this one. 
I used Hobbs 80/20 - my favorite batting. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Blue and Green and Retro Revolution

This is one of Cathy's quilts.  She brought me three quilts and said do whatever you can do the quickest!  These quilts along with two more she will be sending, will go to a family member whose home and all their possessions were lost in a fire.  She wants to replace the quilts she had made them through the years.  

I just love these colors, the simplicity of the pattern, and the panto!  It's Retro Revolution by Patricia 
Ritter.  I used Glide thread and Hobbs 80/20 batting.

Summer Sampler Series in Christmas Fabrics

Well, Sandy made this gorgeous Summer Sampler that we did as a Block of the Month.  I think it is just gorgeous.  I love white backgrounds, and her choice of Christmas fabrics just makes this one shine.  I used Sprigs of Holly pantograph on it.  

We were inspired by Fresh Lemon Quilts, Swim Bike Quilt and Freshly Pieced Blogs.  I hope to finish mine this summer.

Thanks Sandy!

Batik Summer Sampler Series - BOM

This is Carolyn's quilt, and I am honored she trusted me with it...when asked which panto she would like, she told me, Mary, you pick, your quilting is awesome!  Yes, that put a big smile on my face.  This quilt came about after my daughter, Diane, and I dreamed up a new project for our quilting group, Loose Threads, to do together, each month.  

Carolyn is a super speedy piecer and whipped hers up first, even before we completed the monthly blocks.  I used Celine Spader's panto, Commas, on it, and love this new panto!  What a gorgeous quilt.  Thanks Carolyn!  This is a king sized quilt, 104x 104, I believe.
