More Quilts of Valor

Red, White and Blue are the colors of my week so far.  One of the most fulfilling things that I do is to quilt for Quilts of Valor.  At least once a month I get an email introducing a quilter who has pieced a top and is ready to have it quilted.  You may find out more about Quilts of Valor here.  When I saw this quilt top I knew immediately that I would need to do something special with the eagle in the center–so I threw caution to the wind, turned the computer off and free-handed the feathers.

I added quilted borders to the ‘Bars’ quilt creating a sashing from Anita Shackelford‘s non-traditional leaf vein, and an eagle designed by Kim Diamond (I know it is hard to see, white on white is very tricky to photograph).

Linking up today with, WIPs on Wednesday, Let’s Bee Social, My Quilt Infatuation, Really Random Thursday and Show Off Saturday.


Have a quilty day!!

  1. Hi Elli, I sure do miss our little statler get togethers.
    I will probably freehand if I don’t find a pattern. I actually enjoy that part. Sometimes I regret getting the Statler but I love it for those allovers and perfect borders. Thanks.
    How have you been and are you keeping busy quilting? I am working on a Judy Niemeyer quilt and loving it.
