More veterans quilts
I finally got a couple of more veterans quilts to quilt! These were good to work on this week between other activities. Yesterday we did a nice hike. The weather was fabulous and it was great to be outside and get some sun.
Before we left I decided to put some sunscreen on my face. Came downstairs and reported that it was a waste of time because my sunscreen expired a year ago. Then Laura looked at her bottle and saw that hers expired in 2015!
At least our faces didn't peel off.
Here are the veterans quilts.
Both of these are made with more of the donated Benartex fabric. The fabric is a bit difficult to work with because it's so busy but people are doing really nice quilts by mixing it with solids and other prints.
I quilted both with my favorite star and ribbon pantograph. I've really gotten my money's worth out of this one! The thread is Innovatech. I really love that thread. It's my current favorite because I never have issues with it. I would throw out my current thread but as I use it I replace the colors with Innovatech. Aside from basic colors, I have a lifetime supply of thread!

Yes, you have gotten your money's worth from that panto for sure. But it works great with those busy quilts. They look great.

Beautiful quilts. The snowball and nine patch is such a classic and one of my favorites.

Be careful with putting sunscreen anywhere around your eyes - a good friend of mine ended up in the hospital when she had a terrible reaction.
