Quilt of Valor top made by Nancy in WY.
This quilt was fun to quilt. I love this curved border treatment and instead of marking even spaces, I like to change the curves randomly, I think it's less formal that way.
She pieced her back with this matching panel. I don't know if she purposely made her top to fit in the dimensions of the squares, but when I measured everything, I knew I had to make this happen.
It was a personal challenge . . .
As usual, I made sure the backing was square.
I marked a line 1/2 inch above the printed line then basted the batting along my markings.
When I attached the top, I basted it 1/4 inch from the top of the batting.
I did the same on the sides.
When I was all done, it gave me 1/4 inch left to attach the binding, leaving the squares complete~
Here's what the back will look like when the binding is sewn down.
This stripped binding is the frosting on the cake!~
Headed back to Nancy on Monday.
She will finish the binding, label, wash it and send it on to it's final destination.
