The last 2 veterans quilts for this week
After Tina left from her quilting session I decided to continue on with a couple more quilts. These are the last 2 that I have for now, except for 2 that are set aside for Marcy. I'm sure I'll get re-stocked at the November meeting! But until then, I'm free!
I taught Tina how to do a pantograph and since I hadn't done one in a long time I decided I'd do one on these 2 quilts.
The pantograph looked really nice on both quilts.
This one is called Star Swirl and I like it because it's very wide so you get a lot quilted in one pass.
I wasn't surprised when I was basting that I ran short of backing. I knew that the top quilt was about 6" bigger on all sides. Tomorrow I'll share a tutorial for how I was able to add more backing without taking the quilts off the longarm!
I know the extra is blue is not brown but there was no way I was going to "match" that hand dyed back. I'm OK with the blue strip on the edge and I think the quilter will be fine with it too.

i really like that arrow quilt. i need to draw it out on some graph paper so i can see the blocks and how to piece it. unless, of course, you want to share a drawing of the piecing for me. hahaha

I like pieced backs - and use them frequently.
