It has been a while since I posted anything about quilting. Since today is International Quilting Day, I decided I better have a little something to show for the occasion. Even though my schedule has been a bit hectic, I did manage to finish a quilt top at the request of my son.
Here are the fabrics he selected with the help of the guys at the quilt shop. I am really not an Americana type person, so this sorta was a challenge until after I got started. And, since the guys at the quilt shop were nice enough to sell my son double the fabric that was needed....Ahem.....I'll be using this again in another quilt somewhere down the road.
I used a nine-patch and snowball block for this quilt top, it was made like the quilt I made my son for Christmas.
When I went back in the archives, I thought I had shown you this quilt, but alas, I guess it was with the files long gone on my old computer...so I had to retake a couple of pics to show you my son's quilt.
I think the black sort of washed out in the photos, but the dark gray is really a black/gray fabric, it is really very pretty in person. This was given to him for Christmas 2009.
It is amazing to me how the fabrics change the whole look of a quilt. I like this now, but still marvel at how much different it is from the other one I made just like it, only different fabrics.
This is now at the quilters, being quilted.......I really love the borders on this one.
Full view of quilt top...now, I just need to sew up the binding so I will be ready to go when I get the quilted top back.
And here is the matching pillow sham.....the person this quilt is for serves our country in the Air Force....I sure hope they like it!!! Come back on Monday to see the quilting...it is done, now for the binding!
