I mentioned in my month end summary last week that I commit to quilt up to 40 veterans quilts each year. This year our group has been very prolific! It's August and by the end of this week I will be done with my 40 quilts. I also made 7 veterans quilts of my own....so far. These two quilts are numbers 37 and 38.
This one was made by Gwen. She's been making a lot of quilts with 4" squares. You've seen several with 4-patches on point and they all look great. With this one she started with a few leftover 4" squares and she built the maple leaf block around them.
I used my favorite Loose Leaf pantograph on both of today's quilts. I used an orange thread but I wish I had used a bright gold that might have shown up better in the big brown blocks.
This pretty 2-tone quilt might have been pieced by Betsy. It's certainly her style but we have several quilters would piece something like this.
It's the Jacob's Ladder block and that squiggly design on the light fabric completely camouflages the quilting thread!
The backing is a nice butter yellow. At least you can see the quilting on the back!
I want to get 2 more quilted by Friday.
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.
