Comfort Quilts #3 & #4

I quilted 2 more quilts on Lily today. Both are comfort quilts, made with unusual fabrics. This one patch quilt has velvets & fleece, & satin, & flannel & other odd fabrics. It's made specifically to be given to someone suffering from Alzheimer's. The textures are supposed to be good for them. I did just a large (thumb size) stipple all over this one.
This second quilt is made from denims, & the hearts are all fleece. I did loops all over, just toe get the feel for making loops. I was fairly happy with how they turned out. At least they aren't squared off.
Tomorrow I'll turn these into the Guild, & if I get the chance I'm going to load something more challenging on to Lily. Something that might actually turn out pretty!

Oh! & check out my DD Michelle's blog! She made a dress from recycled paper, & it made the cover of the Stranger!

I'm sure your very proud of her.
Your quilting looks good too.
