Today I bring you a new quilt I am working on- a quilt for a woman who served in the Marine Corps during WW2. Here is the entire quilt, pieced by Bobbie Jarrett and Photo Transfer printing by The Pixeladies:
Here are some sections I have designed so far and quilted. The corner motif is my design, with plans to have Digitech Design sell all the designs later in the year. I plan to add a couple of stars to the motif below:
The blank blocks will have this design:
More pictures to come when I am finished. I am told that this quilt will be unveiled in Wash. DC later in the year at a museum.
Design wise- I decided to make this a lovely patriotic quilt since the recipient is female. As a nod to her military service, I am quilting stars here and there. The recipient is also a musician, so I will be adding musical notes and the outside border (not shown) will include piano keys.
I am also using a purchased feather design for the outside diamond spaces- a Sherry Rogers-Harrison feather design from her Lancaster Star Collection (also sold at Digitech Designs.
More to come later… Hope everyone is well who is reading this. Would love to hear what YOUR current project is? Hugs, Carla
