I have quilts from Ray to share with you today. He’s been hammering out quilts right and left.
“In and amongst other duties I did manage to find some time to longarm this cutie.
Nancy F in FL shared some of her stash with Patty. Love the Irish chain pattern that she chose. Adorable quilt.
I selected the daisy motif and a bone-colored thread for the quilting.
This one is ready to go to the finisher ladies and then to Quilts for Kids. My thanks to you, Nancy, Patty, and the finishers for your great contributions to another kid’s quilt.
i have one more QOV from… Linda F in AZ finished to share with you.
This is the last of the batch from Linda. They have all been beautiful, wonderful quilts. This one was made with strips and then she added some friendship stars to give it a lot more interest.
I decided to drop back a bit and use the stipple motif for this one but still used that red, white, and blue variegated thread.
The backing used up the rest of the red and white star fabric. Gorgeous quilt. My thanks to you and Linda for another great QOV that is ready to be rehomed to a deserving veteran.
Last year Maureen M in OH made and sent to me a large stack of red, white, and blue string blocks. I made 3 quilts from the blocks last year and made 2 quilts from the blocks this year. This is the first of the two.
I found the yardage in the center of the quilt with some other patriotic fabric I was given. I decided it would be a great center for a couple of quilts and proceeded.
I also decided that the quilts needed a border to pull the top together. This one I bordered in blue. I also found some leftover blue backing fabric.
I reverted back to some free-motion wavy lines for the quilting in white thread.
And there you have it. My thanks to you and Maureen for your continued support for QOVs for vets.
WOW. Can you believe all of the Quilts of Valor that Ray has been finishing? MANY thanks to those who have sent quilt tops, backing, and supplies to Ray. He really makes great use of your donations!!
