The first 2 veterans quilts of 2020 are all done, except for binding. Someone in quilt club will volunteer to bind them.
I tried to be bold with the quilting to bring all the dark lines in the African fabrics into the solid squares with navy blue thread.I wasn't sure at first but I like it!
I took a clue from the orange fabrics in the tops and picked a pale orange for the back. The navy blue thread and quilting pattern really shows here and I love it. I'm glad that we have a wide variety of quilt styles to deliver to our doctors and nurses. They uses these quilts to help people who are having difficulty processing their upcoming treatment plans. With such a variety of quilts they have the opportunity to really personalize the quilts to the recipients.

It's a wonderful outreach you're doing and must be so well received by the veterans. Nice that the quilts aren't all the same too, and as you say they can personalize them to the recipients.

I love the blue quilting thread with the black lines in the fabrics. It really does make it more cohesive.

Your choice of thread and quilting design looks wonderful on these two quilts. I am sure I will have more 16 patch quilt tops to send you in the future. They are fun and quick to make.
