Quilt of Valor #76

Hot off the frame....just minutes ago.
This top was made by Fern in Washington state.
What a cool "chain" pattern this is... 
I used the pantograph, "Allegiance," by Kristin Hoftyzer. 
Patriotic fabric on the back also.  Lots of supportive words. 
Thanks Fern for making this QOV!

Quilt of Valor #74

This QOV top was sent to me by Sandy of Aurora, OH.
I put a star in the center of each white bordered diamond...
...and then quilted swirls all around them.
I love these rich dark colors.
Bead board on the outer borders.
I think these stars look like they are celebrating!

Auction Quilts

I am sending these 2 fun quilts to an auction to help a friend who is a racehorse jockey.  He was injured in an accident.  We have known this family all of our lives, so I was glad to be able to quilt these and send them out today.
Flannel, curly minky and fleece.  Yummy, soft and cuddly. 
Maximizing the 60" width of the minky and a 57" length of the flannel, you can get a finished size of 42 x 56.  So versatile: a toddler quilt, a lap quilt or just a quilt to keep in the truck.  They are super warm and a little heavier than normal cottons would be.

A few years ago, I made a tutorial explaining how I make this fleece binding: fleece-binding

I just happened to have 2 bolts of Riley Blake's "Wanna be a Cowboy" flannel. 
One in cream and one in pink.
Curley Minky is the bomb for the back.  
Hobbs 80/20 batting and So Fine thread. 
I love this simple little freehand lasso-loop that is easy to do and just enough quilting. 
No piecing here, I'm just letting the fabrics do all the work.

Pink and Black

Another great quilt by this sweet customer.  I have done a dozen or so of her quilts over the years and they are always fun.  It is for her granddaughter.
I took my cue from this fabric and decided to make my freehand fun funky flowers.

Look at that huge polka dot on the back!  This quilt is full of fabric surprises.
