String Quilt of Valor

I am now in quilting mode for the Quilts of Valor this week. Here is a String Quilt. I got Darlene Epps Pocket Guide to Freehanding. And in the Orange Book - Textures and Fillers there is a baptist fan..ish looking design. I thought it would look really neat on this quilt. And I think is does look neat. The curves kind of soften the hard lines...


So this quilt makes 4 completely ready to deliver... I don't count the binding - as I take them to school and one of the teachers binds them for me. She is really good at it - and she likes doing the binding... I just can not imgine liking that step. If you can't tell that is my least favorite part of quilting....
Hope everyone had a Happy Valentines day. We had school parties and are on the sugar letdown at the moment. It was snowing in the morning. There was an accident between a Fed Ex truck and a small car by my road. In the afternoon there was no snow left - just mud... what a day ;-)

Hi Alicia,'I see you8 dislike the binding part, me too so I am taking a " No Hands Piped Binding "class next weekend. The finish is very clean & professional & I know Sharon Schamber finishes her quilts this way & she wins huge awards & says the judges never comment on the lack of hand finishing. I make QOV's & also HOB's so I am thrilled to learn a fast way to finish them beautifully by machine.
I'm thinking of making a yoiutube video after I get the technique down so I can share it with all the others who are "binding avoiders"!
Blessings,
Roslyn
