My mother's quilt. She loves green, and I think likes more traditional quilt designs (although I could be wrong about that). The blocks are all the same star, but the different colour choices gives some of the them a completely different look than others.
I quilted each of the stars individually, and did a looping pattern in the border on my long arm. Then, because my long arm skills weren't up to it, I took it to my regular machine to stitch in the ditch along each of the sashing pieces. And with every row I remembered exactly why I bought a long arm. I never want to do that again, so I have ordered an extension table and will be doing some straight-line practicing over the next few months.
And my last quilt, for my father & step mother. It was interesting trying to get the background on this one to flow smoothly. The fabric had more variation than I thought at first, so I tried to keep the blocks arranged so that there aren't any sudden jumps from a light area to a dark, across the seams.
