While Lost My Marbles was drying I was able to get a couple more veterans quilts quilted. I think both of these were made by Betsy.
Betsy works a lot with reproduction fabrics and really favors red and black so I love all of her quilts. This one is made with 2 simple blocks that create a complex design when combined.
This one was made with the Strength Quilt pattern and she made it more interesting with her pieced top and bottom borders.
Some people think that you can pair reproductions and batiks. Clearly those people are wrong because they work perfectly together in Betsy's quilt.
I dyed a beige backing fabric and quilted both with this easy fan pattern.
Today I'm off to hunt for more glass tile to finish the fish backsplash. Cross your fingers for me!
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.
