After finishing up the quilting on Non Unus Pluma I'm not quite ready to jump back into something involved. That means it's time for Vicki's Veterans Quilt Sweatshop. I had 8 that needed to be finished and got 6 done so far. I'm going to quilt one of my QOV quilts next. Here are the quilts I finished with a close up to show how I quilted it.
A little background. These quilts are all made by my quilt group, Country School Quilters, in Montpelier, VA. One of our members volunteers at the McGuire Veteran's Hospital in the spinal cord injury department and she shares the quilts with "her" patients there.
Our volunteer, Terry, is also a longarm quilter and between us we almost keep up with the quilting for the quilts. I use the quilts as photographic samples for my beginner longarm quilting classes that I teach at The Longarm Network. So all of these will have simple quilting but I still think they turn out quite nice.
On with the show.....

That third quilt is a design I have never seen before--looks like a churn dash missing a few parts.
