Blue and White

This is a quilt top I quilted for my sister, Janet.  It’s made from a blue Jelly Roll – which is a pre cut set of 2 1/2″ wide strips.  She combined it with a crisp white to make this beautiful quilt top. It’s a little bit bigger than twin size and covers a queen nicely.

I believe she received this Jelly Roll as a gift from her Secret Sister in the Indiana State Quilt Guild.  What a lovely gift turned into a beautiful quilt!

Batik Wave

This is a quilt I quilted for my best friend, Shelley.  I’m not sure what name she actually gave this quilt, but I named the quilting pattern Batik Wave.  The quilt is made from so many batik fabrics and in a pattern that looks like it’s woven.  So, it seemed to fit.

Shelley sewed the quilt top at one of the Indiana State Quilt Guild retreats.  It was great to watch her sew this – it had to be so organized! Look at it closely and you’ll see why.  This first picture shows it draped over the quilting machine frame.

The second picture shows a close up – especially of the border.  I did a pebble quilting pattern in the border – it looks awesome, but oh my goodness that was a large area to cover!

Beautiful quilt, Shelley!
