Renter Roundup! from Quilted Joy

It’s time to check in with the renters again – what have they been up to?

Jean's Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Sam Quilt

Jean recently quilted this cute Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Sam quilt.  It began as a panel that she cut apart and set with sashing and borders.  She quilted it with a pantograph called Heart Fancy which captures the sweet love of these perennial characters perfectly.  Aren’t they adorable?

I saw Michelle’s quilt on Instagram long before she ever asked me to quilt it for her — and loved it even then. So I was SOOOOO excited when she asked me to quilt it for her!!

This was the first quilt I’ve done post QuiltCon, and I had a lot of fun incorporating elements from classes with Krista Withers and Jodi Robinson!
