I just love a blue quilt, don't you? Cathy made this cute one.
I've gotten to the end of my customer quilts, I just need to finish posting about them. I'm taking a much needed break for a few weeks.

My friend asked me to finish this quilt. It was made 25+ years ago by her stepmother for her daughter. Her stepmother couldn't finish it, and felt really bad, and asked my friend if she could find someone to hand quilt it. No luck there, but I was able to finish it for her. It was a fun challenge. I wanted it to look very similar to her hand quilting, and it needed to copy her motifs exactly.
I think this is the tiniest set of feathers I have ever done. The quilt was about 70% done! I just needed to do three of the blocks! sashing around them! and the feathers around the outside.

Joanie picked up this grandmothers flower garden, GFG, top at a thrift store so she could rescue it. I gave it a sweet panto, Daisy Delight, by Hermione Agee. I think it finished up beautifully.
This top is 100% hand pieced. The backing looks like a vintage sheet, but it's new fabric. Perfect!

It is always an honor to quilt one of these quilts.
Home of the Brave quilts are replicas of Civil War blankets, and they must be this pattern, and this size, but with varying fabrics. The coordinator of the Kern, Orange, and San Diego counties lives right here in my town, so I am privileged to do a couple of these quilts each year. I hope to do more in the future.
If you are reading this and you are current or former military, I want to sincerely thank you for your service to our country.

Joanie made this Hugs and Kisses or Xs and Os quilt at our mystery quilt night. She doesn't like it, but I think it came out really neat,
