Veterans quilts 39 and 40!
Remember Monday when I shared the Maple Leaf quilt and mentioned all the quilts that Gwen has made with 4-patch blocks? Well, here's another and it's not the last one! I really like the on-point setting.
I complained about my thread selection Monday because it didn't show at all on either of those quilts. I corrected that with these quilts by using a bright gold! For this quilt I used a pantograph that I use often and I think it might be called Woven Wind, or something like that. I'm seriously too lazy to walk downstairs to look it up. I want to get this post done quickly before I leave for the monthly sewing days with my quilt club. Anyway, I like the texture it gave this quilt. Gwen has a lot of binding to do!
Occasionally I get a quilt that needs some "special" quilting. I just could not do a pantograph on this strong graphic one that Liz made. You know that I LOVE the gradient effect that she gave this quilt! The squiggly line quilting that I did on this one was really fast but it's a great effect.
Here's a close up of the quilting. You can't really see it but I did the same 2 squiggly lines in the print fabrics too. This one was a good one to end on. My goal of 40 quilts is done!
There are several more to quilt and Marcy and Denise are helping with those. I've told the group that I will not take in any more quilt tops for the time being. I may take some in November if I get some of my own projects done. But I don't feel any pressure to do it and the group is very nice and will not pressure me either. They are always nothing but grateful.
Here's the stack that I have ready to deliver this weekend or Tuesday at our meeting. You know what this means....there are dog beds to make!

Vicki, you deserve a pat on your back for all the work you 'give' to these quilts. And it's nice to know your group is grateful and doesn't pressure you to do more!

Great job. I was admiring the elegant simplicity of the 4-patch on point, before I read what you said.
