 Scrappy Mountain Majesties in Red and Black

on the longarm at Marriner's Compass Quilt Shop

Hard at work

and of course a label
completed project.

     This is the scrappy mountain majesties quilt in reds and blacks that I made for friends.   They were kind enough to install a handicap shower when my Hubby came home from the hospital after his stroke.   It really has been a Godsend.   Her favorite color is black, so I added red to it. It is very scrappy with all kinds of red and black prints.  Loved doing this.   I love this pattern and have made several.  It is quick and easy, but looks complicated.
       I am working on a small version.  This one used 8 1/2" squares to start.  I am now using 4 1/2" squares.   It is really cute.
     This one was quilted by me.  I rented time on the long arm and am doing all right for now.  Would like to have one so I could get better at it. The label is ala Bonnie Hunter.    I did it the way she does hers.  She suggests your own handwriting, although I make mistakes, I still leave it as is.  I give her credit for the pattern, who made it, who quilted it and who gets it with the date.  This one I added washing directions.
