Charla’s Wedding Quilt by Janet

Janet made this attractive neutral quilt for her daughter Sarah to give to her friend Charla as a wedding gift.  Janet’s daughter Sarah and Charla have been friends since kindergarten.

We thought the Calm Water pantograph by Anne Bright was just the right match to the calm/neutral character of the quilt.

A wedding quilt by Cindy

This lovely lilac quilt was made by Cindy as a wedding gift for the child of a friend, first of four to get married, Cindy says!  The quilt is from a pattern called BQ3 by Maple Island Quilts, however Cindy called hers The Wedding Quilt #1 - I guess she’s anticipating making more!

Cindy chose the Double Plume pantograph by Keryn Emmerson and a lilac coloured thread.

Cathie’s Quilt by Linda

Love the gentle colours in this star sampler pieced by Linda.  Linda made this quilt as a gift for her cousin Cathie to celebrate a job promotion.  What a kind and generous gift.

Linda chose the pantograph Rambler Rose by Meredith England, a beautiful compliment to this quilt and fabric.

The fabric that Linda chose for the quilt back is also a lovely compliment to the quilt’s front, and the Rambler Rose quilting shows so nicely.

A delicate beauty this quilt.

Great work is done by people who are not afraid to be great. ~ Fernando Flores
