before I load another of my quilts that's going to take months to quilt, I decided to clear out a few more quick quilts. Last night I finished these 2 veteran's quilts. Next week they will be on their way back to Country School for binding.
What's not to love about a string quilt, especially when it can be quickly quilted with a meander. I'm pretty sure that Karen A. made this one because I give her leftover backing pieces from the quilts that I quilt and I see some of those fabrics in this.
I have a pretty substantial stock of King Tut thread. I don't use it much in my own quilts so I'm making effort to use it exclusively on the veteran's quilts. Quilting 32 of these quilts this year has made a substantial dent in the thread stock. I might run out in 10 years if I keep up this pace.
This quilt was made by our West Coast member, Annie. She and Becky met online in one of Barbara Brackman's block programs. Annie liked out veteran's quilt program so sends us quilt tops periodically. The are always pieced perfectly.
I didn't want to take away from the structure of the houses so I quilted this one with straight lines. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
