One of my quilt club friends rents time on the longarm at The Longarm Network. She volunteered to come quilt some veterans quilts to get more practice. Usually I wouldn't do this because it would normally take me more time to do that than to quilt them myself. But in this case I knew that Marcy had been trained on the Innova and just wanted practice. While she quilted I worked on the last 2 sections of my wall.
These are 2 of the 4 quilt tops that my friend, Patty The Quilt Lady, sent me recently. We used gray thread so that it would blend and she would be more comfortable not worrying about any mistakes.
Patty is a very prolific quilter and we were thrilled to get 4 more tops for our veterans! I'm working on the other 2 now. I had to load one last night so that I would get away from the vicinity of the brownie plate in the kitchen. The distance and my headphones finally drowned out the "Eat me!" screams.
The back on these 2 is a pretty hand dyed turquoise. That gives me 6 of my 40 veterans quilts quilted for the year.
