This is my hubby's king size quilt. The bridal bouquet one is probably my favorite, but didn't think Randy would want it in there--he did though. It was fun that he liked every block as I made them, but his favorite is the pinwheel--next to bridal bouquet and top right in picture of whole quilt. Block below is one of my favorites--and one of the harder ones. The plane is to commemorate my father in law being a pilot in WW2. B52 I think, not a bi-plane!!!
It's made using Quilt in a day's Victory Garden book. I've made lots of what I call comfy quilts--pieced fronts, often using a fiesta design or something similar then backing with fleece. The first quilt I really made was for my son years ago with blocks I made up with black backgrounds then used a few strips of bright colors to snake across each block randomly. This is the first time I've used precise directions and made a whole quilt. I'm very, very happy with the results. My dear friend Shirley, did the longarm for me. She even put Eileen loves Randy in the black border and some hearts. AND she offered to bind it! I finally got brave enough after trying this binding technique on three smaller projects.
