A military quilt finish……………

My larger guild group still does military quilts (not ‘QOV’) and this is the most recent, finished this morning before church. It’s an original piecing by Yvonne, using a shirt that was given her by a member of the family of the intended recipient. “Custom”was the only option for this one. A “full”view…IMG_6710   Really a wonderful pattern! And, no, Yvonne doesn’t write down any of her creations but puts them together as she goes!!!!! “Planning” with a HUGE amount of creativity!!! She deconstructed the shirt and found a spot for most all the important parts.  Now, for some details………………IMG_6712 IMG_6703 IMG_6704 IMG_6705

  2. “Only the best” quilter would do for this quilt! Yvonne’s composition strikes a chord with me, I love to piece in unpredictable ways too. Your quilting sets it off beautifully!

    This one I need to study. Sure you don’t want to move that farmhouse about 300 miles east? 🙂

  4. Kudos to Yvonne to take on such a challenge.
