Big, Bold and Beautiful!

The quilts I have done in the last few days have been HUGE! Three big quilts in three days, not too bad. The aqua and tan quilt was made for a sister's 50th anniversary gift. Wow, that's quite a gift! My customer is off to Newfoundland to deliver it.
You may recognize the blue and tan stars quilt as Bonnie Hunter's My Blue Heaven. My customer took the class from Bonnie while she was here and made this scrappy, wonderful quilt. I finished it with scrappy blue binding and a nice label because my customer has neuropathy in her hands, making handwork difficult. My little gift to a great customer.
The zig-zag quilt was made by my friend, June, who loves to create with oriental prints. She must have had a scrap from every quilt she has ever made to get this variety in her king sized jewel. I quilted it with an edge to edge pattern of oriental clouds. It turned out really nice.
I also did a custom quilt this week that is all wool applique. The photos must be in Mr Wazoo's camera. I'll post them when I download his pictures.
Have fun quilting!

I only have this snap of the Newfoundland bound quilt. Mr Wazoo is pitiful at picture taking...

Bonnie Hunter's pattern, My Blue Heaven

It's a two block quilt. Makes a great statement in these scraps.

I quilted it with the Texas Fan pantograph

The back is cool, too!

This quilt is really big! Here it is from the back of the quilting table

June's marvelous oriental zig-zag

pretty prints and fluffy cloud quilting

Turned out stunning!
