Two more quilts

Here's a patriotic quilt that I pieced... quilted with crosshatching through all the squares in the body of the quilt, and a star/wave pattern in the borders.  Also echoed the triangle border.

And, here's a cute panel quilt, with Minkee on the back.  It's quilted with the "Here Comes the Sun" pattern- which is a cute pattern for kids quilts- clouds & sun.  

Patriotic quilt

This patriotic quilt received some custom quilting.  I had a star/wave pattern that worked well to surround some blocks, and cross-hatching in the panel with words.  Also outlined the stars & added some meandering in the red areas after echoing the embroidered stars.  

Embroidered quilt

This quilt was made as a reproduction of an old quilt.  The piecer had a quilt made by her mother (I think!), but it was wearing out, so she traced the embroidery pattern & made a new quilt to match the old one.  I thought this was a neat way to preserve the quilt.  I put a block design in the pink areas, and some corner patterns to surround the wreath embroidery.  

Snowball quilt

Here's a pretty snowball quilt that I quilted in August.  I put a block design in the snowball blocks, and some diagonal straight lines in the 4-patch blocks, and a coordinating border design.  Quilter's Dream cotton was used in this quilt.
