First Quilt of Valor
Almost done with my first QOV. All the blocks are done and I just need to get them together with a border now. I’m done for tonight, couldn’t sew another stitch. I’m really kind of amazed that I got this done in just 3 days. I have a really hard time doing the same thing over and over and over. That’s probably why I’m drawn to doll quilts or large sampler quilts.
(Btw, if you look close – Yes, there is a fabric with text on it. It’s the pledge of allegiance. I found 2 yards of it for 99 cents at a thrift shop some time ago and knew I wanted to use it in something like this some day!)
Tonight I went and picked up some batting so I can start quilting my string quilt. I have also decided on a simple pattern for my next QOV and picked out fabric for it. It’ll be blue and tan with a large coordinating paisley border. I think I’ll do a little tutorial of this pattern because it looks like it should be quick and easy, but maybe doesn’t look like it?? We’ll see!
