I got 4 more quilts done yesterday so I'm still on track.
This is one that my Mom made. When she finished this quilt she still had a lot of 2.5" squares left and made more 16-patch blocks. I really like how she offset the columns.
I picked a gold thread for this quilt and the next one and I think it looks great on the quilt.
I don't know who made this quilt but I absolutely love it. I just love a great bold orange and it plays so well with the scrappy brown tone 4-patch blocks.
The gold thread looked great on the orange quilt too.
These quilts are backed in a soft buttery yellow.
I don't know who made this quilt either but it's pieced really well, the wonkiness is due to my lazy photography skills last night.
Here's the block for this quilt. Four of these make one big star block. This is another great quilt for scraps.
Elvis is back! This isn't the same quilt from Monday. Becky made 2 of these. She says she still ahs lots of Elvis fabric but this was the last of the beer bottles.
These 2 quilts are quilted with white thread and the backing is a nice medium blue. I have the next 2 loaded and basted and ready to go tomorrow morning. I had to stop for this evening to make my Mother's Day card.....which could not look less like Mother's Day.
That's 9 of 13 veterans quilts done so far!
