His and Hers

My client made 2 lap quilts for her granddaughter's wedding: His and Hers!
I just finished the groom's quilt:

I used the panto Maori Moko from
It's actually a tribal pattern, but I like it for masculine quilts as i think it also looks like gears and wheels.

 Black textured Minky backing:
 Here we go . . .  this is the actually color....yummy!

I did the brides quilt sometime back but here it is again:

Wedding Quilt

What a beauty this is...
I love the rich colors my customer chose for this Kim Diehl pattern.
She made this for her daughter's wedding. Appliqueing for the first time, she did a wonderful job!
I copied one of the applique flowers for the corner blocks.  This brings the flower border all the way around the center with the quilting.  I also went for a folk art type of feather in the large triangles.

What fun this was to quilt!

Quilt of Valor #59 & #60

These 2 QOV tops were made by Fern from WA.
The big mixed color blocks are explosions of stars and ribbons...and provided my inspiration for this quilt.
Big swirling fireworks with a floating ribbon in the outer border.  Folded ribbon candy in the red border.


This quilt is mostly ruler work . . . 
. . . with spirals in the star centers and curls in the outer border. 
I love all the secondary patterns this quilt makes! 

Thanks Fern!

Quilt of Valor #58

This QOV was made by Lana from Northern Idaho.

I tried my hand at "Dwirling" by Dawn Ramirez.  It's a fun, easy and freehand.
Gives great movement to a quilt. 
Gold thread top and bottom. 
Thanks Lana!
