Something other than a veterans quilt
This is a quick quilt that I quilted for Mom this week. When she lived in Farmville her neighbor was also a quilter. Rita and John were very nice, very funny and were really kind to Mom. Shortly after Mom moved away Rita died and, of course, left behind a packed sewing room and tons of UFO projects. Mom has taken on a couple of them to finish for the family. This quilt is one of them.
Rita was really organized and had her projects packed away with the fabric and pattern together so Mom knew that she planned this pattern for this fabric.
Funny story, when she brought the top over we put it up on the design wall and we both commented that it's not one of our favorite quilts. We aren't particularly fond of the fabrics or pattern. But just as we were expressing our opinions Chris walked through, glanced at the quilt and said that he really like it. So there you go, different strokes for different folks.
I quilted it with an Urban Elementz pantograph called Carnival and used pink So Fine Thread in the needle and bobbin. It was nice to do something a little feminine for a change.
Next on the longarm is the big green quilt.

I must say I was surprised at first glance of that quilt because my immediate thought was that it's not 'you'. Turns out I was right! It's pretty though, but it's not 'me' either.

Ha ha... definitely not your style or mine. But I like the graphic look that the strong value variations give it.

Love this top even though I am not a big fan of pink or green. I think it is the strong contrast and the random look that gets me.

I see some "F's" for Farmville in the quilt.
