Quilt of Valor is quilted!!

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced 


Sew Fresh Quilts




My Quilt of Valor has returned from the Longarmer, and it looks beautiful! I am excited to get the binding on it, and the label. Now if only I can find those labels.... You can see the whole top here.


Didn't my quilter, Rosemary do a fantastic job? She chose a gold thread that works so nicely with the pale gold flannel I sent her for the backing, and it picks up the few stars in the top that include gold. 


 I love the density of the quilting and the stars in the pattern. Won't it have such a wonderful crinkly texture once it is washed?

Hoping to have it all completed when the weather is better so I can finish up and get some nice outdoor shots of it. I will be happy to check off another project on my Q2 Finish-a-long list!

More to come soon!
