Quilt of Valor Finished


I am happy to say that I have finished this quilt for the Cotton Stitchers club.  It will be donated to Quilts of Valor.

My original blocks, mentioned in my previous post, were made from scraps.


However, I had to cut into yardage to make enough blocks to finish the top.  I made some more crazy disappearing nine patch blocks and some friendship star blocks, including two reverse star blocks.


The backing and binding were donated by Daines Cotton Shop.  I donated the batting and thread.  I quilted it simply with loops and stars on the Bernina Q24.


Here are close-ups of some of the other blocks that were donated.





The backing was extra wide, so I didn't have to piece it.



It was a great group project, and I hope to make another with my Cotton Stitchers club sometime.  While we have had some service days before, this was our first pieced and quilted quilt.
