How about some quilts?

I'm getting ready to make another quilt, here are 2 I've made, the first is a Kaffe Fasset pattern I finished this past winter for our bed, it took me 2 summers to put together the top, and then a few months hand quilting it at night while watching TV. The 2nd is one I made a couple of years ago for my son. I took a freeform class at Stonemountain & Daughter in Berkeley. It was great fun to just cut up fabric, zip it up quick on the machine and not measure anything. Hard to see in these photos, but a lot of the blues are japanese ikat dyed fabric, and the reds all have small japanese calligraphy in black. I promised my daughter that she gets the next one.....
