Catherine's QuiltCatherine's quilt is a soft mixture of blues, greens and lavender (she's not a pinky kind of gal). I did not want it to look like a baby quilt with all of those soft colors so I threw in some Crocus Kona Solid and Amy Butler Daisy Chain in Navy.
Along with more Amy Butler (Love, Midwest Modern) I also added Pop Garden by Heather Bailey, McKenzie by Dena Designs and a few more Kona solids. There is just enough contrast to bring everything together. The blocks are alternated Basic Pinwheel and Square in Square.
Sashed and backed with McKenzie, Gemstone in Lilac. Bound with a bright fuchsia polka dots. The back is accented with three wide strips of framed patchwork squares. Quilted in a lovely "loop de loop" design.
Chris's quiltChris's Quilt had to be "cool and masculine". Big bold blocks with lots of Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow.
Look closely and you'll see some Jennifer Paganelli's Poodle, Patty Young's Mezzanine and Mod Guitar by Michael Miller...what an eclectic ensemble! Kona solids Ocean, Nightfall, Slate, Denim and Straw were thrown in, too.
Bound with Play Stripe in Lagoon. Backed with more Ocean Kona and a few leftover blocks, cut in half and framed with Slate Kona and that wonderful mustard Poodle...love it! Quilted in a wide, wavy, grid design. A manly quilt, indeed!
