The weekend kicked off great by getting 2 veterans quilts quilted on Friday. I don't know who made this one but I like the simple pattern of 8" blocks.
This is the second of the Friday quilts. I don't know who made this one either but it might be Gwendolyn or Margaret or Ellen. They are the ones who have most of the leftover Benartex donated fabric. I love these giant 15" blocks.
Saturday brought on 2 bright quilts. I don't know who made this one but I like the sparkle of it. I quilted it in a light colored thread so it actually shows up a little on this quilt. If you look toward the lower right corner you can see the quilting a bit.
This quilt was made by Nancy and it has kind of a funny story to me. I saw this pattern online and was going to buy it thinking it would be a good one for veterans quilts. Fortunately, for me, Nancy was working on this quilt during one of our club sewing days and I saw that it's kind of a nightmare to make. There's a ton of waste created because you make the long panels, put it together and then cut it down to size. She cut off some big chunks. That also means that all 4 edges of this quilt are on bias. She had a lot of challenges keeping this thing square.
I didn't buy the pattern.
I didn't quilt one stitch Sunday because I spent the day with my friend from England. But Saturday night I did get two more quilts loaded and basted so I'm ready to get back to quilting today, after I do some yard work.
