2 veterans quilts
Getting those veterans quilt tops done really motivated me and I couldn't wait to get them quilted.
This quilt was made by Becky. The batik fabrics are left over from a quilt that she made for her Grandson and his new wife. She added in the green for a nice bit of color.
I had the perfect green backing for her quilt but since I quilt 2 quilts on one back I've been waiting for another quilt to pair with it. This leaf pantograph was perfect for the nature feeling of her quilt.
My UFO transformation quilt with the green border was the perfect quilt to pair with Becky's quilt. Can you see that it's also bound!
That leaf pantograph really helped out this quilt giving some focus to all that scrappy randomness of the tumblers.
If you are in the US I hope you have a great 4th. We are going to gill with Mom this afternoon but that will leave plenty of time for more quilting!

Nice finish! The leaf pattern is perfect for both these quilts.

You are doing great getting these finished up. I like what you did with the tumbler quilt and love that panto for it.

I am glad you found the "mate" to quilt with the tumbler quilt.
