The Aunts' Quilts

These two are for Angela's elderly aunties.
The first has a freehand folk art floral design, separate borders.
 The second has a circular design called Sukara by Circlelord.
 I have one more large quilt to get on the longarm, then I will be starting on son and fiance's wedding quilt. My soon-to-be DIL has chosen this design for the center of their Cal/king bed, with a wide border of WOW.
My sleuth friend BJ tracked down a free tut for this block in a 10.5" version on the 'net, then I scouted around some more and found a 12.5" which will reduce the number of blocks and speed up the process- I have only a month to complete this for their March 21st. wedding.
I cut out the pieces for a mock up block so I will be certain I am correct before I cut into the actual fabrics which are shown below plus a WOW that is in process of delivery!
The grey on the far left is three yards of wideback for the backing, then a selection of greys and yellows for the center design. The WOW, one of the P and B Ramblings series, will be consistent throughout the quilt.
The basic idea is similar to this blue and white quilt I completed last year with a different center block design. More pics here.
As on this quilt heirloom quilting of feathers, pebbles and piano key border will be the star of the WOW border, quilting details here.
