When I teach a class, I like to redo my quilts so that I can create a step-by-step PowerPoint for my students to follow along. Having been interested in the Quilts of Valor program for quite awhile, we decided to recreate the quilts in a patriotic theme. A few weeks again I taught Spin Me at A Touch of Thread and we made the quilt in a darker color scheme with burgundy, navy and cream. For the quilting, I chose to use a ribbon meandering all over with sporadic stars that were then highlighted with gold metallic thread.
In class, it was so fun to see everyone’s color schemes. One lady made it using batiks and it was coming together absolutely stunningly. Two sisters who were taking the class were going with a tan background and various shades of olive green – just beautiful! I have to admit that while designing patterns is so much for me, seeing others choices may be even more fun!!
Here’s how ours turned out …
