Machine Pieced and Machine Quilted

Here are four quilts I have made in the last couple of years. The first quilt with the turquoise border includes fabric transfer photos, the second quilt was made for the baby of a co-worker, the Bug Quilt is one of my favorites made for a friend of my daughter's, and the last quilt I am putting away in a closet for a new baby. I made one exactly like it for my niece several years ago. I use 100% cotton fabrics, Hobbs cotton batting and machine quilt in a meandering pattern. I then wash it which gives the quilt a puckered look of a vintage quilt. Now, doesn't that make you want to curl up with a good book and a quilt on one of these rainy summer afternoons?
