I'm officially caught up...until tomorrow. I know I'll get more tops at the meeting tomorrow night but I won't worry about those until September. Here are the last two for now.
This one was made by Estelle. I love the leafy focus fabric. She's been working really hard to make veterans quilts from her stash but I was in her studio last week and, like the rest of us, you can't tell that there's any fabric missing!
Peg also makes most of her quilts from stash. But this one has an added twist. A few years ago Country School Quilters were gifted a lot of fabric to use to make veteran's quilts. We made well over 50 quilts with all that fabric. At the end there were a lot of browns left over. Becky cut a bunch of 1 or 2 yard lengths and handed them out as a challenge to use them with other fabric for veterans quilts. Peg dug into her stash of green and tan scraps for this quilt. The brown really makes the greens sparkle and, honestly, it doesn't look like a scrap quilt anymore.
I love seeing how people use scraps to make stunning quilts. I quilted it with the same Burning Bush pantograph that I used last week.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
