Oh my, Michael is at it again. He says that he thinks this pattern is from Art East. They are all so cute! Whatever animal I'm looking at right then is my favorite!
His little grin!
I love the pattern, but my color choices are "Interesting". My usual scrappy quilts, and when you look closely, some of the fabrics are probably not the greatest choices. Oh well, cop quilt.
Frankly, I'm more excited about the quilting. All done on my computerized machine, I've been doing only edge to edge, but why waste the tools that I've got at my fingertips? So, this was a practice one.
The quilting shows up much better on the back. Now if I'd only gone for a 12' table for Lenni, I could do larger quilts! Oh well, live and learn.
This is another of those quilts that when you're quilting it you think "Hey this is fun." Then after it's hung up and you step back you realize just how stunning it is! I imagine that these are all Kaffee Fassett fabrics
Those of us "not in the know", would refer to this as "hacky sack"
This banner celebrates the group's 10th-20th years. Sadly, they didn't get to gather during 2020 due to Covid
The two quilts below also include a portion of the back of the shirts that commemorates the loss of a member during that year.
Here is another stunning quilt for a niece in Texas. Pat's directions on the check in sheet say "Make it pretty.", so I hope we've done that.
Continuous curves in the chain blocks, lots of feathers that grow up from the bottom of the quilt along the chains and plates.
And a large loopy feather on the borders to frame it all.
Bridget had asked for a wave design in the predominately blue blocks, and a "topographical" design in the brown ones to represent their time at the beach, camping and hiking.
She had further requested a feather in the blue portions of the pinwheels, and then a stone/pebble design in the grey/black portions. Try as I might, I couldn't find a decent pebble design for such a small space, so I ended up finishing the pinwheels and the borders on my Millie machine. The rest of the quilt was completed on my computerized Lenni.
Hard to see from where I am sitting, but the outer borders are filled with feathers. I had such a good time watching them grow and fill the space. Sharyle has made a stunner here.
