Quilts and guitars

This is a quilt that I quilted months ago but I couldn't post it until now.  Lori made it for her friend Michele out of some beautiful indigo fabric that Michele had shared with her.  Michele loved the fabric so much that she didn't want to cut into it and use it but Lori found a pattern that showed off the fabrics and made the quilt which I then quilted.  At our last Guild meeting Lori showed the quilt during Show and Share and then gave it to Michele.  She said Michele is always doing nice things for people and wanted to do something nice for her.  It turned out really pretty although it is so dark that it is hard to get a picture of.

This quilt is made by June.  It's a civil war pattern designed by Judie Rothermel and I love June's fabric choices.  Instead of browned out civil war reproduction fabrics she used Japanese and ombre fabrics.  It was killer to quilt because it is huge and has about ten zillion pieces in it but I liked the way it turned out.

I delivered the quilt to June at her home and she and her husband Charles gave us a concert on their guitars.  June does the pickin' and Charles strums the chords.  Pretty cute.
