Guava patch

Guava Patch is the name of this new hawaiian quilt.  Guava for the color of the backing fabric.  Patch for the patchwork front.  Yes this is a picture of the back.  I had it for about 10 years and have been putting off using it.  Since this is going to be a wedding present for newlywed friends of ours, I thought this was the perfect backing fabric.  If you look at older posts, at first, I was going to use Greek Sakura fabric.  I think this came out much better.

Now for a picture of the front of the quilt.

This came out to 85 x 85.  It is on the floor and I am standing on the chair to take this picture.  Its being wrapped up tonight for the wedding tomorrow.  I'm glad I remembered to take a picture.  The quilting was freehand machine embroidery following the pineapple and monasteria leaf on the back fabric.  I used coral thread on the back and white thread for the front.

Inner City Kids

This is a picture of my latest quilt.  Inner City Kids.  I'm really pleased with the way this came out.  Although, I think I'm done with hexagons for a while.
