I will get Lost My Marbles back on FloMo today but I decided to get 2 more veterans quilts Tuesday afternoon first. Both of these were made by Betsy and since they were both blue I could quilt them together on one backing and could also use the same thread.
The fabric that she used is so soft and the Jacob's Ladder block made a really nice cuddly quilt.
She made this one using 2 batik fabrics and the Blockade pattern. She said it went together very quickly.
Here you can see the quilting. I really like this pantograph for the veterans quilts.It's a perfect design and it quilts up quickly.
This blue backing that I dyed last month worked perfect for both of these quilts.
I have a huge collection of variegated threads. Some are King Tut and some are Rainbows. I don't use them much anymore on my own quilts so I'm trying to use them up on the veterans quilts.
I've got loads of thread left but I'm finally down one cone! This is all that's left after I finished both of these quilts. How's that for good quilting luck?
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.
