1053 - Jan's American Beauty

Jan wanted this American Beauty quilted like the one at "A Heart Like Yours" quilt shop in Spokane that I had done a couple of years ago.  After talking on the phone with her, I've made some changes, mostly to the outer border.  I used Anne Bright's "Victorian Gates Border and Victorian Gates Double Swirl.  That outer border fabric is pretty busy, but this gives a nice surprise when you're up close to the quilt.

1052 - Ami's Baby Quilt

Ami wanted a variegated thread to help fill in the open spaces on this baby quilt.  I used a purple King Tut from Superior Threads.  The color changes happen every inch, so you really have to look for the subtle changes in color.  "Daisy Mae" from Anne Bright was the design used.

1051 - Mary's Single Irish Chain

Another from Mary's UFO closet, this Single Irish Chain was made using Eleanor Burns' method.  Anne Bright's "Sun Valley Zinnia" was Mary's choice to quilt this. 

1050 - Mary's

Mary  has been cleaning out her UFO (UnFinished Objects) cabinet, so she couldn't give me a name on this.  I used "Anne's Favorite" (Anne Bright) to quilt this.

I did a lot of "Stand and Stare" on this quilt - not to decide the quilting (my usual reason) but to figure out how this was put together.  I do love a puzzle!

1049 - Marge's

This quilt was made for a man, so Marge wanted something non-feminine for the quilting.  "In the Moment" from Anne Bright gave great contrast to the angles in this quilt.
