Quilt # 11 - Finis! for my parents, Janet and Alan
I really love the colors and modern fabrics used in this quilt for my parents. They had requested "Blues and Browns" - but I gravitated towards Blues and Greys - with a splash of yellow. It turned out to have a hint of UCLA Bruin colors, so apropos!
I attempted a more intricate "straight-line" quilting technique following the cross pattern on the backside.... I think it makes for a great textural effect.
