It seems that I got the longarm timed properly! I got 2 quilts quilted this week and one of them was this one that I made. Of course it's a veterans quilt and I got it bound last night to be my first finish of 2023. The quilting is a simple wavy crosshatch.
This is probably the third double 4-patch quilt that I've made as a veterans quilt. The gold fabric is the leftovers from a veterans quilt back. The little squares are cut from leftover symmetry fabrics and the larger pieces are from a Paula Nadelstern fabric from several years ago. It's one of my favorite of all of her fabrics.
I quilt the veterans quails two at a time and this is the other one that I quilted at the same time. Becky made this one as part of one of Barbara Brackman's quilt-alongs.
I got my chandelier quilts basted and they are ready for quilting but that won't happen today. By the time this posts Mom and I will be on a long day trip to Martinsville, VA. It's about 3 1/2 hours each way so it's going to be a long day. Since I won't have any progress on anything today I'll have a crochet update to post about tomorrow. This weekend I hope to get the chandelier quilts quilted and bound. After that I have 3 more veterans quilts waiting for quilting and I expect I'll pick up more of them at the meeting Tuesday.
