Here's the "His" quilt ready to have the binding hand sewn. The "Hers" is folded in the foreground. This couple will enjoy watching a movie together or reading after dinner while snuggling under their quilts.
For a more masculine effect, my customer and I decided upon quilting free hand oak leaves. Several of the batiks in this quilt have a botanical feel, so I thought this motif would be a terrific fit.
Those leaves are a bit camera shy, but they show up pretty well in the rich brown borders. Although the top thread is variegated to add a little more interest, it's very subtle.
We're getting ready for a grandma arrival this afternoon. Since all my customer quilts are back in their hands, I can switch gears and start focusing on our family traditions. No gifts under the tree yet. Oops. I don't usually consider myself one of those last minute shoppers. The house needs a little bit of tidying, but thankfully, I had time to do some of that yesterday. Time to jot down some menus for the week too - a fusion of vegan and carnivore dishes.
