I'm off to Newport News this morning for Birds of a Feather so I won't be posting again until Monday. It also means that any orders placed will not be shipped until Monday.
In the middle of frantically getting my class stuff together (at the last minute) I got 2 veterans quilts quilted!
Several years ago we (Country School Quilters) were gifted with a LOT of fabric. It was all from a Barbara Brackman repro line. If you've been following me for a while you have seen a lot of colors in this palette, minus the red. I THINK that this is the last of that fabric. We are grateful to have been able to cover so many veterans with it.
I quilted this one with an all-over leaf motif.
Here's the other one and it's all in the original fabric collection. Perfect for manly quilts.
I had an hour so this one got a meander with the most perfect variegated thread ever. When this one is washed it's going to be nice a snuggly. Now they are back to CSQ for binding and eventual delivery at McGuire Veteran's Hospital.
The person who delivers the quilts for us is the mother of one of our members. She's 80+ and volunteers at the hospital frequently. She loves delivering the quilts because she remember when her husband received a quilt when he was in the hospital years ago. We weren't making them at that time but we are happy to help her pay it forward.
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.
