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.
