A binding party!

Jan has had a very busy winter making a collection of quilts for the cottage.  Her fingers will be aching by the time she is finished the binding on  these lovely quilts.  Jan is always open for trying new edge to edge designs and I think you will agree that they look great on her quilts.  This quilt has a feathery pantograph by Bethanne Nemmish.

This flying geese quilt is the result of a workshop with Berene of Happy Sew Lucky.  We tried this new curvy wave edge to edge pantograph on it.    I like the way it turned out.

I personally love the colours in the next quilt, they make me want to throw all my old stash out and start over.  We decided to do some custom quilting on this to emphasize the star and the rest was quilted with large swirls and a neutral thread.

This next quilt is made entirely of very large half square triangles.  We were all ready  to quilt this with an edge to edge pantograph but after sharing the type of quilting that can be found in Bethanne”s books, Jan choose to have the same type of freehand feathering on her quilt.  I love experimenting with new  ideas.

Totally freehand, just draw the bone with chalk and off you go.  Bethanne’s books have very clear illustrations.

I really enjoyed playing on these quilts, thanks Jan.
