My first 2 veterans quilts of 2022 are done! This the second set of quilts I've made with this star block and I'm sure I'll make more. These 2 quilts started with scraps of yellows/gold/oranges and 2 chunks of blue fabrics left over from other projects. This particular blue is a remnant from a hand dyed quilt back.
Both quilts are 48" x 60"
I picked binding for these quilts solely based on what I had available. On the first quilt I had enough of the background for the binding. The second one has some orange binding that was supposed to be for another quilt that I never used. I think the orange binding turned out to be a nice finish.
To me these are "beachy" quilts. I was at the beach when I cut them out and the colors remind me of a sunny day lounging on the beach. I picked this pantograph because I think it is reminiscent of water and wind.
I hope someone will find comfort with them.
