Two for Donna

Donna made this quilt for as a grad gift for her grandson.  Donna added the Browning Buck mark logo for a little special interest.  When I saw the camouflage fabric and the logo, I immediately suggested my freehand woodgrain for the quilting pattern.  I think it was the perfect choice and looks cool on the brown flannel backing.

Of all the quilts I have quilted for Donna, this is the first one that she is keeping for herself.  She asked me to quilt this wallhanging for her, and I took some cues from the fabric patterns to help make my design choices.

I added straight lines to the ribbon in the centre, and varying width piano keys in the border, and a string of pearls  in the small gold border.  My favorite part are the "nemeshing" style feather in the blue sections.

The quilting shows up amazingly well on the solid backing.

  1. Donna's wall hanging is stunning, and your quilting shows the fabrics and pattern perfectly.And the Browning Buck logo, I should have guessed where that came from. What a wonderful gift.
