These quilts were made for my parents' 45th and 50th anniversaries.
The 45 Tulips are from Mary Hickey's Angle Antics--a book with many errors so if you have an old copy, make sure you check with the publisher for corrections. I found a few errors they did not have on their list. It was quilted by VJ Smith, the most amazing machine quilter I ever worked with.
The second quilt, for their 50th anniversary, was hand quilted by my mother's neighbor, Mrs. Bolks. She quilted two wedding rings in each golden star.
