More QOV……..

This has been in a “holding” pattern for a couple of months. The larger quilt group I attend will be giving several more of these QOV (Quilt of Valor) at a gathering in September and this one will be among them so I needed to quilt it and get it back to the gal who pieced it so she could finish putting the binding and label on the quilt. The pattern is “Twist and Shout”, a workshop our group did a while back and whose pattern I made available here. The quilting is my favorite “swirl” motif.001007004006

      Thank you! Even-ess of the pattern across the top has been a bigger challenge than I ever thought it would be. I can see the advantage of have a frame set-up and being able to see the “whole picture” as it’s being stitched. As with the entire process/craft, I’m getting better with more practice!!! Thanks for dropping by! Blessings…..

  5. i remember when you shared this pattern. I put it in my favourites. Haven’t made it yet, but I will at some point in the future. You’re doing a great job Doreen. There’ll be some very happy and grateful recipients, I’m sure. Do any of your quilts go to ladies? Avis x

      Yes they do, actually. Many quilts that have been given have gone to returning gals/Moms. We have found that they make the same choices as the guys (for color preferences). When the quilts are given, if possible, they are allowed to choose which quilt they would like…..usually more than are needed are available to be given.
