Quilt of Valor #67

This Quilt of Valor was made by Bonnie from Canton, OH.

I guess you could say I decorated the flags. 
I picked a couple of backgrounds and repeated them in each color.
Check out this cool border fabric...

I used gold thread top and bottom.  I love gold thread for QOVs.

I love this fabric with the shooting stars!
Border is a simple and efficient wavy line.

The true color is the pictures above.  It's navy, not electric blue.

Quilt of Valor #66

This is QOV #2 for the Central Massachusetts Quilts of Valor group.
I just finished it and it's in the mail back to MA to their binder.  

I had this hanging up in my studio for the past week and tried to come up with a design for the blocks--some are partial blocks some are whole.  So....I decided to just quilt the different fabrics with unified and simple designs. 

I used "Deloa's Boomerang" arc ruler to go clockwise all around the outer border.  I used gold thread so it's really hard to see in the dark fabric.  
I like how it turned out and will do it again.  The 4 corners work up into extra long arcs and with this star fabric, it reminds me of shooting stars.

Surprise!  Flag print on the back~

Quilt of Valor #65

This Quilt of Valor was made by the Central Massachusetts Quilts of Valor group.

~ It's made of crumbs~

All the colored strips are crumb strips, some have up to 20 different fabric pieces sewn together.
I chalked in a dozen randomly placed stars, echoed them, and then quilted the rest of the top with swirls.  Swirls are great to quilt down all those itty bitty pieces of fabric.

I used navy blue thread top and bottom.  The back is a tiny red/white pin stripe and since you can't really see much quilting on this brightly colored top, the navy makes a nice contrast on the back.  

I think I like how it turned out.

DWR Done!

This Double Wedding Ring is finally complete and tomorrow morning, will be on it's way to Southern Utah for my sweet friend Shirley.  It was a treat to quilt her unique top.

We wanted something different than the traditional treatment for this stunning quilt with modern colors: black, grey and white.  Asymmetrical freehand feather plumes are centered in each ring, but also centered in a grid-like box that is hiding in the background.
