Quilts!

A year ago I made 3 quilts in December, two were for my daughters Christmas gifts and one was for the BOM at the local Cotton Shop.  I regret to say that the BOM quilt is still not quilted, it hang on the wall in their shop for 12 months and the last few weeks I just haven't had the desire to finish an 'old forgotten' quilt.  Until then it may just have a spot on my shelf.

The other two quilts I blogged about a little but I never did show the finished products. DD1 (darling daughter #1) received a hopscotch quilt, it's prior post goes into the fabric and pattern choices.  She's also the daughter I did the geometric patterns painted on her wall.

Here is her finished wall:


And quilt:




Starting out with all the triangle was difficult, but the quilt came together quickly and in the end I really love the finished quilt.  It is definitely my favorite quilt that I have made.

You can see its back goes well with the pattern painted on the wall.  It's not often you get to choose the paint color, pattern, head board, and decorations in a bedroom, all around the quilt.  But the quilt pattern and fabric was my basis for her bedroom.  


DD2's quilt was a pattern that she chose and she also chose the fabric at the Missouri Quilt shop.  We were just driving through a small town while on vacation, and I could not pass up the opportunity to stop there.  Here is the ink  to the making her her quilt and the final product.  It fits her personality perfectly.



This is my nephew Brets quilt I made for his graduation last summer.  He's on a service mission for the next 16 months so I am holding it for him.  It is made with Modas Reel Time fabric.


I had a hard time choosing the quilting thead color.  I went with orange even though the back of the quilt is green.  I really like the visibility of the pattern, it stands out nicely but isn't to bold.

They are all great and I really love the secondary design on the triangles quilt.

Beautiful quilts, I love the colors and geometry of the triangle one!

I love that wall. And the triangle quilt is stellar. An equilateral triangles quilt is on my bucket list.
