Lois and Jenny's quilts and a Christmas quilt.................

Hello friends, it's a been a busy week, a week of quilting! Want to see three of the quilts finished this week? There are other quilts finished but there will have to be a short wait until I can share them with you.  First is Lois' quilt.................................

Made with Lois' favourite fabrics -Lynette Anderson. A simple 'stack and whack' type quilt made in a class at The Country Yard.  Apart from Lynette Anderson fabrics, Lois also likes LOVES cats, so she had me quilt 'Kitty Kat" which is a fun edge to edge pattern.

The quilt measures 70" x 88" poly/cotton batting, Glide thread - 'Maroon'. Thank you Lois!
Next is Jenny's applique quilt made for her coffee table. Jenny ask for simple custom quilting and four quilted flowers in each corner.

Measuring 39" x 41" which will be a nice size for her coffee table. Quilted flowers, ditch stitching and some curling tendrils.

Thank you Jenny. Next is an easy on the eye 'Christmas' quilt........apparently Christmas is nearly here!

I kept the quilting simple on this one too, as instructed by The Country Yard store owner Kerryn.

Made as inspiration for those wonderful layer cakes. Straight lines and looping stars (which help cement the Christmas theme) and my favourite part, the Greek Key in the middle section.

                     Measures 52" x 69" poly/cotton batting, Glide and Madeira threads.

                        Thank you Kerryn! Happy Christmas preparations to you all!


  1. 3 delights here I am sure all three will be thrilled with your quilting, it gives the quilts such a professional finish. I so love Lynette`s fabric I have some small pieces in my stash wating for the occassion to arise when I can use them

  2. Beautiful, and the centre Greek Key is so fitting for those colours.

  3. That is quite the kitty in the panto. : )
    Lovely work on the table topper.
    I have to ask, do you use a ruler on the Greek Key design?

  4. Lovely to see these quilts Leeanne... the kitty panto is gorgeous, I bet Lois loved that one!!

  5. More beautiful quilts and avoiding that christmas is nearly upon us...can't keep my head in the sand for much longer!!!

  6. They are all gorgeous Leeanne. I love the Kittykat quilting on the first one. The coffee table quilt got me thinking about my tin trunk ... perhaps a nice Tilda table topper?? Quilted by my friend Leeanne .... made entirely by Leeanne would be great!!!! Love the last one too ...Kerryn sure puts some stunning quilts together.

  7. I really like the border fabric Lois used, it ties the quilt together nicely and makes it a lovely big size. Of course... it wouldn't be Lois without the cats! The layer cake Kerryn used must have been very yummy, and really suits the quilt made. The "simple" quilting looks good too!
