Thanks to Sylvia for alerting me to my missing audiobook post for July. It wasn't actually missing but I had accidentally posted it to July 5, instead of the 31st. You can find it here.
I have two of my own veterans quilts to share today. I've been working on these in my quilt club sewing weekends. I got the tops done in July and, by doing some really fast quilting, I was able to get these knocked out this week. The one on the left was supposed to look like the one on the right but I cut all of the sashing wrong! It has the dark blue corners because when I was re-cutting the fabric I ran out of that blue from my stash. We quilters make do! I like the look of both of them.
The block is a sawtooth star with a 9-patch center. Simple. I have another kit cut out in this pattern where the stars are bright oranges and yellows and the background is turquoise. I think I actually cut out 2 kits for that one.
I am the lucky person who gets to deliver the quilts. It's really easy now because our VA hospital coordinator just moved about 5 miles from me. Do you remember when Benartex sent me a bunch of patriotic fabric in compensation for losing one of my quilts? Quilts from those fabrics are starting to roll in! There are 11 in this stack of 31 quilts.
My quilt club is so prolific! I think that this stack alone is the work of only 8 people. Amazing. I hope to have about 10 more of my own ready to quilt after vacation.
