I am really pleased to have finished the (2) #QuiltsForVegas that I started a few weeks ago, and I am excited to be shipping them off tomorrow.
If you are interested in participating, please visit the Las Vegas Modern Quilt Guild’s #QuiltsForVegas post. They are asking that items be shipped by November 15, so there is still time to contribute!
The colors and layout for the first quilt was a collaborative effort with Miss A and Mr. L, two children in my local community who know the healing benefit of a gifted quilt from the quilting community.
I made as many blocks as I could using the colors selected by Miss A and Mr. L and added into 2 more colors to have enough blocks to create a second quilt top.
The prints in the blocks can’t really be seen in these photos, but the colors in the blocks of the quilt tops and the binding all feature swirls, so choosing to quilt these quilts with swirls was an easy and fun choice. I really think it ties it all together nicely.
The backing for both quilts is a combination of Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton (Persimmon and Flame) and Michael Miller Cotton Couture (Marine). The stripe of orange is at the top of one quilt and at the bottom of the other.
Outdoor quilt photography can be a bit tricky in my town, as it is always windy!
Both quilts finish at approximately 50 by 60, and I will get them both washed prior to shipping them away.
