Ray is on a roll!! He had been knocking out quilts right and left. Today’s post is a celebration for Veterans as both of the quilts featured are Quilts of Valor made by Linda. Many thanks, Linda. Ray has been singing your praises and I want to thank you as well.
“I finished another quilt from Linda F, in AZ. I am not 100% sure she intended for it to be a QOV for a couple of reasons.
First of all, there are several Christmas fabrics that were used, but no green. It is basically a red and white two-color quilt. However, here and there are some fabrics with blue stars in them. I decided to go with QOV and add some more blue to the mix.
I used a blue thread for the quilting and a star motif and blue binding.
Oh my, I might as well tell you the rest of the story. The blue binding has in very small print pumpkins, witches and broomsticks. Regardless of all the oddities built into the quilt, I think it is awesome!! I love the combination of four patches and HSTs to create a diagonal pattern.
My thanks to you, Linda, and the backing contributor for allowing me to have some fun with another QOV to go to a much-deserving veteran.
I finally got the binding on the beautiful… QOV today.
Linda F from AZ. sent me this one as well. It is made out of 4-inch squares and is interspersed with stars. I just love how it all comes together.
I selected the fireworks motif for the quilting and the old standby of red, white, and blue variegated thread. The backing is some more of the patriotic heart fabric that someone sent me. My thanks to you, Linda, and the backing contributor for facilitating the assembly of this QOV for a veteran.
That heart backing fabric is awesome. Thanks so much to the person who sent it. If it was you, please leave a comment in the comment section. We’d love to thank you personally.
Both of these tops are just perfect for gifting to a veteran. Ray has really been working hard to get a stack of quilts ready for the upcoming presentation in his area. They are so great to see!!
