Thanks to all who serve………………

This day is set aside to give honor and recognition to the men and women who have given so much for the country we live in and the freedoms we enjoy (and, all too often, take for granted). It just coincided with a QOV (Quilt of Valor) I was finishing up. 002

The backing is a plaid homespun. I’m not sure if it was the best choice for this 70”x 70” quilt. It’s very loosely woven and was pieced several times to make the measurements adequate.   005

The colors, however, are perfect!!!! And, now, the whole picture……………………….001

Thread used: (Both top and bobbin) Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly, 70wt, “Turkey Red”. Quilting motif: Feather Paisley.
