Judy’s Lap Quilts

Judy has been able to pump out the quilts this year now that she’s not busy with the big job of being in charge of the Guild’s Boutique.  She recently made 2 lap quilts, which I will tell you about now.  She’s also finished 2 more quilts, which I will tell you about in another post (or two).

This first one looks like it is made from the same fabric as a previous quilt Judy made.  I absolutely LOVE this fabric!  I cannot believe I didn’t get more pictures of this quilt and of this fabric.  :\

I quilted the above lap quilt with a ribbon type quilting.  And, of course, I snuck something into the quilting.



I also love this other quilt she made.  Judy tends to use neutral backgrounds, and I think this makes the blocks pop.  Do you see what I mean?  And, she’s got me dying to make one of those checkerboard borders.  I LOVE them!  But, I also fear them, because I know you have to have your measurements dead on perfect.  That’s the reason I am a machine quilter and not a quilt top piecer.  I don’t even come close to being perfect when putting together quilt tops.


For this one, I quilted a combination of pointy flowers and rounded feathery swirls.

Didn’t Judy do a marvelous job on both quilts?  I think so!
