Check out my post on the eldest boy's quilt, Stone Arrow.
And here is the little brother's quilt, Addition.
|The front of Addition. My husband had lots of complaints about this one because it is so big and it was hurting his arms to hold it up. As you can see, it never got perfectly flat being held up. And that is with my 6'1" hubby standing on a chair!|
|A certain someone wanted in on the photo shoot.|
|Don't they look dreamy?|
|I did straight line quilting diagonally through the pluses and then echo quilted all the seams. I used a clear thread on the top and Sulky in Smoke on the bottom because the quilt had a very light front and very dark back.|
|This shot gives you an outline of my hubby but not a great idea of the true colour of the backing! It is a dark tone-on-tone Pearl Bracelet (in Shadow I think?) which reads as almost black in real life.|
|I love how they look together. I wanted them to be cohesive (the same fabrics are in both quilts, with a few extra in Stone Arrow) but not be exact matches.|
|Maybe I overdid it with the pictures...|
|They both have the same AGF Squared Elements binding.|
|And they look so good tossed together in a bundle!|
I think J and E, both too young to appreciate quilts now, will have many years to enjoy snuggling under these dark grey and crisp white modern quilts, commissioned by their awesome mom and made, with love, by me!
Both quilts are awesome!!! I can't pick my favorite either!!! Love the fabric choices too! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Both quilts are great. You did an awesome job.ReplyDelete
I just had to laugh at your technique of using your husband to hold up your quilts. I press my 6"4" husband into similar service. I have him spread his legs in an A-frame stance to keep the quilt from blowing too much in the breeze as I snap a picture. I like the large J on the back, too.ReplyDelete
