Quilts from the past

I found these pictures on the computer which brought me to thinking about big quilts again after a long time focused on baby quilts. Well that and teaching a class this afternoon at Cloth and Bobbin, surrounded by quilters and gorgeous fabric.

This is the quilt for Sean’s (my brother-in-law) high school graduation. Don’t look too close at how the squares line up, I didn’t know all the tricks then. Not all men would enjoy a quilt but Sean bought me a quilting book one christmas and asked where HIS quilt was for months following.

He loves orange, but you wouldn’t believe how hard it is to find enough variety in orange alone. And honestly, I hate orange so everytime I went shopping for orange, I came home with red…

The purple was for Aunt Fran’s wedding. It was a quick 3 or 4 day quilt, and I think she loved it because I got this picture a few weeks later, showing it was getting good use!

I bought a big stack of fabric today, so maybe a new quilt soon… as soon as I get the yard cleaned up from the long winter…
