    Well, I just finished this queen sized quilt for my son. Pieced on my Sapphire 850 and quilted on my Juki TL98E. This quilt was fun, my son is getting it for his "first home" gift. He is a contemporary kinda guy, in the military for over 18 years, preparing to possibly retire. I found this pattern in Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting Mag around 2008. Colors are Black, white with a Jinny Beyer print of gray, black and red.
    Also is a pix of a wallhanging I made called "The Many Blue Moons of Argos" for my DH. This was from Louise Smith book.Hope you enjoy them!

    The quilt is outstanding. It is very contemporary in its colors, but at the same time a bit of a throw back to the atomic fabrics of the 50s and 60s.

    I don't see how he couldn't love it! You did a great job on both quilts.
