First Quilt of Valor for 2015 – Finished!

Last time I showed you this quilt I had promised myself I wouldn’t work on it so I could get all our tax forms pulled together.

One of the things that I hadn’t been able to decide on for the quilting design was the border. I love piano keys. So I decided to go with that. But I wanted to mix it up some so I added some candy ribbon in every other key.

This really took a long time to quilt out. There was quite a bit of stopping and starting until I could find a good quilt path. But it was sooooo worth it. Don’t you think?

I really like all the texture that it added without detracting from the piecing.

I am so happy with how the finished quilt turned out. And I can wait for show and tell with our guild, because another guild member is quilting the same quilt in a different colorway and we both wanted to see what different ideas we would have come up with.

Now I need to get the second QOV quilt loaded and get started on that one!!!

    Sometimes it doesn’t “gel” til some progress is made (I’ve found that to be the case) but your finish is a total “hit”!!!!! You “rocked it”……………………………

  2. This is beautiful!! I wish I had the “vision” to quilt like that and the “talent”. I am currently piecing a QOV and haven’t a clue yet on how to machine quilt it. You need to enter this in our quilt show (www.oceanwavesquiltguild.org) !!

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment.
