FloMo and I were busy this past weekend.
This is veteran's quilt #3 for 2015. It was pieced by Miriam from fabrics left over from a beautiful Hunter's Star quilt that she made in 2014.
It's quilted with a feather pantograph using King Tut cream thread. I like the effect of the quilting on this one a lot.
This is the 4th veteran's quilt. The CSQ members made these blocks and I think that Becky assembled the top. I honestly didn't like it until I stepped back and looked at it from a distance. Now I love it!
It's quilted with freemotion swirls. I used a King Tut thread that's variegated in purple/blue/green for the top.
This is the next quilt up. it's a scrap quilt that my Mom made with a gazillion 6" charm squares that I dumped on her a few years ago. I was going to do a simple overall design.
But I couldn't do that. I found this little motif in Judy Madsen's book and I thought it would be good freemotion practice. I'm pretty good a generic freemotion but I am crap at freemotion motifs that should look consistent. I wanted ruler work in the sashing so that I could nail down those thick intersections and the little motif works great in the triangles.
In some blocks it doesn't even show up but that's OK. The point is the practice and after I do this twice in all of the 360 blocks I should have it down pretty good!
