Judy's Pinwheels

Judy's Pinwheel quilt hanging between the bars of my Innova

Bright crisp color against a white background 
and a simple but effective layout creating an inner border

A good example of an e2e lined up with the blocks of a quilt 
using Marci Gore's Orange Peel e2e

Batting is one that Judy likes to use... Quilter's Dream Puff 
A mid weight poly with lots of loft! 
A good alternative for customers that are not comfortable with wool. 

Thread is Omni's Bright White 

Thank you Judy! 

Quilted and picked up last week. Judy also shared the quilt she made 
in Don Linn's class at our guild's meeting last week with Don as our guest speaker. 
I took his curved piecing workshop on Friday and learned allot. 
Tot ziens, Jo

Serendipity in Fall ~ Tina

This beauty is made by Tina B
Pieced pattern is Serendipity by Linda Ballard 
Tina pieced this quilt at a workshop with Linda at Honey Run Quilters in Chico

Quilting design is Fall Flurry by Bethanne Nemesh 
It's a new design by Bethanne available on Digi-Tech 
This center block is what drew me in to choosing this design for Tina's quilt
and then used the same design as a p2p to fill into the inner border  
and added a single motif/element to the corner space. 

Block design quilted in the center/corner blocks
also shown below with another element added between them
in this photo of the center of the quilt

A leaf in a circle for the sashing with leaves added in the cornerstones 
Thread is Omni in Pine Shadow / Batting is Quilter's Dream Machine Blend

This quilt is made with just two fabrics, the Fall leaf batik fabric with a 
light green fabric that had gold dots for the background fabric. 
My camera is not doing justice to the beautiful color of this quilt! 

A border and corner design was added to the outer border
which the camera didn't pick it up on the batik print
Here you can see a portion of the border at the bottom of this photo of the back.
Backing fabric is the same fabric as the background
The photos absolutely do not capture the gorgeous fabrics that make this quilt!!! :0(

Thank you Tina! 
It was the perfect time of year and weather for this beauty :0) 
Tot ziens, Jo
