Kathy's Drunkard's Path

Kathy pieced this quilt with tons of different fabrics.  It's bright and colorful, 
and her work is always amazing.  It's 80 x 97.

I quilted a loopy design in the colored path, and lots of feathers in the cream path.

I love how the feathers look floppy as they fill in the odd shaped areas

It all comes together beautifully in the center, and at the points where the patterns changes direction:

Her backing is a soft green:

Wendy's Quilt of Valor

Wendy pieced this top, and then sent it to me for quilting.  It's 63 x 84.  It will be donated to a veteran through the Quilt of Valor program.

I quilted a flag panto.  There is one star, and wavy lines to create the flag:

I love all the patriotic fabrics she used:

The backing is a cream with a blue design:

Guild Quilt of Valor

5 of us from our guild pieced this top.  It will hang on display at the 2016 Shipshewana, Indiana Quilt Show.  We will be doing demonstrations of string blocks, and this quilt will be our backdrop.  Thanks to Amy, Flo, Pat, Darlene and myself for construction help.  It's 53 x 70.  The binding has been applied, and Flo will hand stitch it to the back.

It was a kit, and included pre-printed patriotic saying to put in the black frames:

I did simple quilting around the blocks, and some ruler work in the black frames:

We used 5 of the pre-printed pieces,  and left the other areas blank for quilting. 
 I used a gold thread to write patriotic words in those areas:

The star blocks got some line dancing, with stars in the center:

I used a star and wiggly lines in the flag blocks:

More stars in the border:

The backing is a plain blue:
(It matches the blue on the front - not purple like what shows here)
