Missy's Triple Play

Missy is a a friend I met at a Knitting Pipeline retreat. She is an amazing knitter, does beautiful smocking and sewing for her granddaughter, and now has been bitten by the quilt bug. Check out her instagram feed here, Marynvoigt.
  
Missy sent me three quilts to quilt for her: 

Missy's first quilt is an Hourglass Quilt pattern. Don't you love the fresh blue, red and yellow color palette?!


I quilted it with Abracadabra:

I love how some of the quarter square triangles randomly appear in the border:


Missy's second quilt is the Starburst Quilt pattern from Missouri Star Quilt Co. Same fabric line, different look:

I quilted it with Tickle, a feathery, paisley quilting design:





Summer in the Park quilt, Missy's third quilt, is a jelly roll quilt pattern from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

I quilted this beautiful blue and yellow floral quilt with Climbing Rose:

I love the border and backing fabrics she used! So sweet!

Missy made this quilt for her niece, one lucky gal!

Great job X 3, Missy!!!
   
Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  14. What beautiful quilts, and great job with the quilting!

  15. Wow, no one would ever guess Missy is new to the quilting thing, although already an accomplished crafter, so perhaps not that green really. A natural for sure, and I hope she keeps sending you the quilt tops thick and fast! My favourite it the blue, green and yellow one.
