I'm wishing all of my fellow US citizens a very happy 4th of July. We actually did our little bit of celebrating yesterday and this morning we're going to the library's annual book sale to see what we can find to take on vacation to read.
This weekend I focused my efforts on ironing a ton of fabric (as you will see tomorrow) and quilting 6 veterans quilts. I have 3 more to be quilted but I quilt in pairs and don't have quilts to pair with these 3 yet.
Here are the 6 that I got done.
How about this bright, happy quilt? I love citrus colors so, of course, I love this quilt. I quilted it with an all over meander because I knew that no quilting motif would show on this quilt.
I paired the citrus quilt with this one. This one might be a little feminine for a veterans quilts but we do know that they have a few women coming through the department so I'm sure this one will eventually find the perfect home.
I quilted it with an all over leaf pattern to tie all of the floral motifs together.
This is the first quilt of the second set. I think that the maker's setting is really interesting and effective.
I used the Woven Wind pantograph on this and it's mate (below). I used gold thread so help pop the tars out even more.
I actually didn't notice the cool woven effect on this quilt until I stood back to take a photo. I like it a lot.
This is a fun scrappy quilt and I love the color palette a lot.
The Burning Bush pantograph was a good fit with the motifs on the fabric.
I paired the scrappy quilt with this beauty that Becky made. the blocks are from one of Barbara Brackman's quilt-along projects.
Becky does some wonderful fussy cutting on her quilt blocks.
That's all of the veterans quilts for a couple of week at least!
