It's a simple quilt made from leftovers but I really like the end result. The blues are cut from the scraps of dyed quilt backs for other veterans quilts. The prints are leftovers from the previous 12 veterans quilts that I've made over the last 2 years. I do love using leftovers.
I had so many leftovers that I made 2 quilts!
I decided that these quilts could use some bold red thread for the quilting and I used the stars and ribbons pantograph that I use all of the time on the veterans quilts.
I have 8 more veterans quilts to quilt (2 at a time) and here's the next pair that will be loaded today or tomorrow. I picked these because I will use the same pantograph.
This week and (upcoming weekend) has been busy with appointments and activities but next week is looking pretty free. I think I can get all 8 quilts quilted by July 2.
Here's a photo of the 33 quilts that we delivered to our VA hospital contact last week. We love making these quilts!
