Handmade quilts make great presents and this cheerful red, white and blue sailing boat quilt made by Jan is heading off to one lucky boy!

designed by Patricia Ritter and Marybeth O'Halloran
Fabadashery longarm quilting helped out with the quilting using an allover digital pantograph - 'Nightlight', one of my most popular patterns, which has spirals and stars. The quilt is 60" x 70", has Hobbs Polydown 100% Polyester wadding and was quilted with a soft grey Bottom Line thread which travelled over the light and dark fabrics nicely.

Quilt made by Margie

Here is another cheerful Kaffe Fassett inspired quilt made by Margie. See especially how she has cleverly used the Kaffe Sunburst print for her border.  For this quilt we chose a traditional Baptist Fan digital quilting pattern and to help speed up the finish, I also sewed on the binding as part of the Fabadashery longarm quilting service.
With the sun coming in, the texture of the Baptist Fan quilting really shows up well.
