Doreen's Quilt from her Grandmother

Barb brought this quilt out to me to quilt. Her daughter's friend , Doreen, had the quilt that had been made by her grandmother but never quilted. So Barb did some repairs and I quilted it and I think Doreen will be very happy with it!

Sunbonnet Sue of course! All buttonhole stitched around them by hand.

Meandering Daisies was the quilting pattern.

Honey thread was used.

A great quilt to remember her grandmother by.

This really shows the quilting.

Great job, Barb for getting it ready to quilt!

Her grandmother even wrote her name on the quilt.

The floral backing.

Karyl's Flower Stalls Quilt

The fabric in this quilt is amazing! Karyl made this quilt and she does work at a quilt shop so she sees these fine fabrics come along and makes such interesting quilts with what she finds.

I love the black and white funky sashing fabrics that she puts here and there.

Chestnut Swirls was the quilting pattern.

The deep rich colors just pop out in these fabrics!

Creek Bed was the thread choice.

It's a WOWSER!!

Roper Quilt

Dee works for a mortuary and when they transfer a person from a hospital, etc, to the funeral home, they cover the body bag with a flag if they were a military person, but if they aren't military then the body bag will be covered with this quilt for the transfer.  What a nice thing to do.

Chrysanthemum Swirl alt was the quilting pattern.

Oregano was the thread choice.

The borders.
