3 Panto Quilts

My last 3 customer quilts have been pantos, which is kind of unusual for me - I'd say 75% of what I do is custom. Here is another from that family's collection of 20 that they brought me last fall! I just learned they are waiting for me to finish them all so they can have a 60th (?) wedding anniversary for the grandmother (who found all these tops that were done by HER mother) where the quilts will be distributed to family members. I only had 4 more to go - two are here, one is on my machine now almost done! I've had to bounce back and forth between their quilts and other customer's in order to keep everyone happy.
Chantilly Lace panto

A very pretty top by Agnes. She didn't want anything fancy done, "just turn it into a functional quilt" she said! So I used my Square Spiral panto pattern for the first time and I really liked it!

The back.

Another by that great grandmother.

Oriental Cloud panto - again the first time I've used this panto as well. With this almost rare opportunity to do pantos I've taking advantage and used some I've never tried before. So far I've really liked them all.


  1. Beautiful! That Chantilly lace is amazing.

  2. I love the blue and white quilt - it is stunning!
