Quilt of Valor Finish
I managed to complete this Quilt of Valor in a little over three days, I just finished binding it this morning! I made the resolution this year to make an entire Quilt of Valor (QOV) each month as my charity projects for the year. It would not have been good to miss the first month :0 !! This one turned out pretty neat, someone had turned in "orphan blocks" to the QOV table at guild, and others had donated fabric. I enjoy looking through the stash, especially since I have to lugg it around to each guild meeting and QOV workhop, so while "playing fabric" I put these together & really liked how they went together. I had a blast quilting it, perhaps went a little "overboard", but that too fits in with the nautical theme of this quilt! (Grin) Perhaps a sailor or a marine will receive this quilt ?? Although the top was all donated fabric and cannot count towards using my stash, I did use three yards of my stash for the backing, so while I am not ahead with the stash count - I am getting closer! Here is a close up of the the quilting. Happy Quilting !!
