Janice's Latest Quilt: Pandora's Box

My next door neighbor, Janice has become a quilting queen. Together we scope out fabric choices at Fabricville prior to a sale, then head toward our choices on the night of the 50% sale and load up our buggy and get in line.

While on a trip to Yarmouth, she sought out every quilt shop along the way, and put together an amazing array of fabrics that complemented each other in a variety of ways.

Janice chose a pattern from a book I bought at Value Village and created this beautiful quilt. It is called Pandora's Box, and is based on a pattern in the book Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam & Nicky Lintott, published by D&C, ISBN- 13:978-0-7153-2868-7 Paperback.




Aren't the colors amazing? The orange pops against the blue, and denim colors. Every fabric picks up another color from the next, and the  flannel backing with a strip of pieced front fabrics make this quilt cozy and reversible. Janice stitched in the ditch for most of the quilt, using her walking foot. The narrow binding in orange frames the quilt beautifully. Amy and Alex will treasure it, for sure.

I'll be taking more photos of her next quilt to share soon, so keep checking out this blog!
