That was fast!
Two more veterans quilted and BOUND!
It's way too hot to be outside so I'm staying in and doing my projects. Yesterday it was these 2 quilts.
Both of these quilts are my Blockade quilt pattern. They go together so fast and there are so many options with color layout. I haven't gotten tired of this one yet.
This one is made with scraps from my Paula Nadelstern fabric stash. The quilting doesn't show on this at all!
Both of these are true trash-to-treasure quilts made with leftovers from other projects. I'm really pleased with this one. It uses the same Blockade pattern but with a completely different effect.
The backing is a grayish purple and I quilted it with my fastest pantograph, Woven Wind. the quilting doesn't show well on either of these quilts so it didn't matter what I used.
I have one quilt back that's only big enough for one quilt so I'm going to get this one loaded and quilted tomorrow.
Today is dyeing day so I don't expect to get much done. This evening I might have time to start doing some planning for my travel projects.

I can see hints of the quilting on the first one, but I think it shows nicely on the second one.

Talk about a win win! Use up scraps so they don't end up in the scrap bin and produce two beautiful, useful quilts that will be appreciated! Good job!
