We had a rainy weekend in Virginia so after spreading a 5 gallon bucket of Preen on the driveway Saturday I spent the rest of the weekend on my fun things. I moved some shelves out of my sewing room to make way for the design wall, I fired the kiln and will have those things ready to share later and I quilted veteran's quilts. The next quilt on FloMo will be one of my own.
Sometimes I don't know who made the quilt tops but I know this one is Betsy's. She loves small pieces and repro fabrics. I did an all-over swirl because you can't really see the quilting anyway.....even with red thread!
I did try to do a little something special in the border with a feathered motif.
I know this one is Carol's because she reminded me at the last meeting. I had to ponder this one for a long time to come up with a quilting plan.
I'm really happy with what I came up with and I'm going to share the quilting path in another post. I like coming up with simple but but nice-looking designs that beginners can do. This "pattern" is one step above easy and there are some really good skills that can be practiced while doing this design.
I think the back is fun too!
I'm off to glass class in a few minutes. I'm focused on glass quilt blocks right now.

I like the border quilting on the busy quilt ... makes the quilt look that little bit more special.And love the quilting on the blue quilt!
