Brewer Quilt & Packer Quilt

Today I spent the day with Jacque, Gracie & Connor.  In keeping with my theme to try and tie up projects that I’ve been working on for a while I was able to get two quilt tops assembled today.

My Brewer Quilt.  I’m going to quilt and bind it in blue to make it less yellow.  I need to decide on a backing.  I’m quilting it myself so I should just go with regular cotton BUT I’d really like to go with Minkee.  On the other hand, if I buy the Minkee and then can’t quilt through it (my last try was years ago, it didn’t go well) then I’ve made a really expensive mistake.

Mike’s Packer Quilt.  Sigh, I asked him to hold it up and this is what I got…

Seriously though…it’s a giant quilt (80X100 and defined as a “lap” quilt).

Love the blue and yellow quilt. I'm sure it will look great quilted. I hope you aren't quilting to Packers quilt on your own though, it looks HUGE.

I do like the way Mike displayed the quilt - very creative! They both look lovely, but I certainly wouldn't want to try to get that bear of a quilt through my little ole' machine!

I love them both but I think the Brewer quilt is my favorite. Gotta say I love the way Mike holds up a quilt.

They're both very striking. I really like the brown in the Packer quilt. FYI I'm having a give away over at Quilt Talk, so please stop by. :)

Those are both great quilts! I especially love the blues and yellow!

Nice graphic quilts - something that I think my grandson would like. I am going to forward your blog to my daughter to take a look.
