Officially finished Aidin's Quilt. Just needed to add the "secret messages" in the borders.
There will be a separate post documenting the making of that quilt, to be posted after it has been gifted to the young man.
Not much contrast as it's meant to be a "secret message," therefore subtle.
Laying out the blocks for The Wedding Ring Quilt.
It didn't really matter how I laid them out. Rosita mixed the colors in the football shapes so well that any layout seemed to work just fine.
The Wedding Ring Top is complete.
I added an extra row at Quilt camp to make it a 4x4.
1 sheet of composed fabric made from scraps from Aidin's Quilt in blues, purples, grays with a few other scraps. The quilting in lines was inspired by LuAnn Kessi's Quilting Journals. This is also good practice for me for free-motion quilting. Destined to be journal covers later in the summer. Also considering making small beaded art quilts out of them, too -- Larkin Van Horn Style.
This was at Silver Birch Ranch outside of Langlade, WI, not far from where I grew up. Ma sat across the table from me. Nice to spend the time together, even if we didn't talk much.
