Dr. Seuss Quilt by Joan

Joan used the fun Dr. Seuss fabrics to make this (Australian style) I Spy quilt.  I’m not sure if she made if for someone in particular or just to have in her baby quilt stash, I should take better notes.

We picked the whimsical Popcorn pantograph by Jodi Beamish and quilted it with Rainbow thread.

So cute and bright.

Moonlight Serenade by Joan

This striking oriental style quilt was made a wedding gift for one of Joan’s nephews.

We decided that the Drip pantograph from Beany Girl Quilts was just what the carp needed.  To enhance the gold in the fabric we chose a Glide thread called Honey Gold.

Joan makes beautiful labels with such nice excerpts and documentation for her quilt gifts (makes me feel famous).
