Jan's lovelies....

My friend, Jan, from Florida, creates the most beautiful, soothing quilts. 
I've been quilting for Jan since I first purchased my own Gammill quilting machine 8 years ago.
I believe she was one of my first customers and we've become "virtual" friends ever since.
Here are two of her most recent quilts.
This one is based on a wilderness theme and is going to some family members who also love the outdoors.  
It's perfect!

It has a "bear" theme - LOVE this cute bear print.
I quilted an all-over wood grain design.

Then Jan adds this adorable panel on the back!

Jan's next quilt is this beauty.
I wish I had space large enough to photograph the entire quilt.

It has the most wonderful prints surrounded by a darling ity bity mushroom background print.

I quilted horizontal straight lines about 1" apart.  
Such a fun quilting design and adds just enough texture without distracting from the piecing.

The back is gorgeous birds.  
I'm crazy in love with birds! 

Thank you Jan, for sending pretty quilts my way and sharing their beauty with me.


  1. Fun quilts indeed! I love the birds backing material. Your quilting choices, as always, are spot on!

    1. Thank you, my friend. That backing is so beautiful!

  2. I was looking through your quilting work to price out send my quilt to you, but then I saw your friend Jan's quilt with those bears!!! I'm obsessed with that bear fabric on the front in multiple color ways. Could you ask her where she got it and/or what collection it's from? Thank you!
