More wool beauties from Jan!

 I've recently finished two more wool beauties for Jan.  She makes the most beautiful quilts out of vintage wool -- and she hand pieces too!

First is her leaves quilt:

Jan wanted a few ghost leaves scattered into the mix.  I'm pretty sure I added 9... my hubby added his opinion that I needed more... IDK, I'm happy with how it turned out, even if there are only 9 leaves!  Here are a few detail pics:

Details on this beauty: hand pieced and appliqued vintage wool by Jan, leaves, loopies and a 1/2" piano key border all hand guided.

Next is a quilt Jan has been working on for some time now.  I love that she shares little pieces of her work every time she drops a quilt.  It's like I get to see them grow up!

I know it isn't the greatest photo, but the sun was just not cooperating and I needed to get the pic!  I have several detail pics - I tried to get them of all areas:

And just a few of the blocks:

Details on this beauty:  Hand pieced and appliqued by Jan.  Using cottons and vintage wools.  Every flower has a corresponding name with matching frame around the border of the quilt.  I did hand guided free motion quilting - yes, every block has a different background fill and there are some fun elements in the sashings!

Happy Stitches!
