QofV

Have you ever noticed that if a quilter can shorten something, she does it?  QofV?........Quilts of Valour.  Delivered to Alison for delivery to a service person to give them our thanks and gratitude for a job well done.  A job very few of us would do.
Margery just got her quilt back from Robin.  Click on that IMG_6166 photo and take a look at it.  Doesn't it remind you of a flag waving in the breeze?  Sure does to me.
Margery made up a super backing.  Truly Canadian.  Added bits here and there to give it lots and lots of interest.  I really love what she did. All the fabric is from Northcott and it was the IMG_6167"Canadian" line they did for Quilts of Valour.
Love it!!! 
This is Robin's quilt.  Recognize it?  Some of you will.  This is the mystery quilt from Border Creek Station from last year.  Robin chose her own fabrics.  IMG_6168 Stars for the stars of our country!

You've seen mine, so I won't show it again.  I will show you the label. I printed it off from the Quilts of Valour website.  It was so small, that I fused it to the same fabric as the backing, stitched around it to make it secure, and then just hemmed around and sewed it in place.  Tucked it into a corner.  I've never done that before, but there is always a first time.  Looks pretty good.IMG_6177From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much to those that serve our country.  We are so very, very proud of each and every one of you.
