Gifted Quilts

I made and gifted two quilts in July.

This first one was given as a comfort quilt for a neighbor who had prostate surgery.

The colors are pretty wild but they are masculine enough. I think the yellow/green batik (is that Tiger or Zebra print?) plays fantastically w/the multi-color fabric which makes me think of colorful outer space but I had trouble choosing the fabric for the thin sashing.

I think it turned but good, but honestly I didn’t love it until after I quilted and washed it.

The second quilt I made for a receptionist at my chiropractor’s office as a thank you for a super kind gesture.

The quilts were inspired by this pattern. I quilted both on Esperanza, and practiced free motion quilting inspired by Christina Cameli of @afewscraps. Both quilts were well received.

Until next time, happy stitchin’ and God bless!
