Quilting for Claudia

Claudia is an excellent piecer. Following are two of her most recent... 
 Scrappy in Reds and Creams the blocks are nine patches with HST corners
 Claudia pieced the borders
 How about set on point? 
We decided on a block quilting design. It was repeated in each block with the thread color matching. We added a second motif in the HST corners in red thread which does show on the cream and created an Irish Chain effect. I love this quilt, wouldn't it be wonderful in Repros!?! 
The second quilt is modern, with greys and cream and we chose to do a straight line/squares quilting design that accent her piecing and fabrics.
 Fabrics are all stripe and plaids and dots on the back...
Claudia pieces most of her backs and this one really adds to the quilt. She plans to add red binding. 
Well done Claudia!
