This first quilt was called Morgan's Graduation Quilt, and it was pieced and longarm quilted by Adrienne Reynolds. Although I liked the bright colors on black, the bottom third of the quilt, with it's lighter colors and lighter background, seemed like it was just tacked on to make the quilt bigger.
I liked the swirling vines coming from the center of the stars; it made a nice-looking overall texture while still relating to the pieced design.
This one is Amazon Star, pieced by Mary Calderon and longarm quilted by Krista Moser. Although the overall look is lighter and more pastel than I usually like, this is a really effective use of color and value. And all those points!
Many of the rows of same-colored diamonds were quilted in a continuous line-dancing fashion.
