A Purple Quilt of Valor

I don't know if I have ever quilted a Purple QOV - but there is always time for a first! And I think I like it!  I used a darker Purple thread, and used my Meandering Magic book ( from Suzanne Early) and went to town.

The back ( I LOVE the pieced squares!!!)

Jeri in our quilt guild made this quilt and gave it to me for a Quilt of Valor. Recently I have been able to deliver some female quilts... so I think this one will be headed that way soon - agree?

Love everyone that takes time to make quilts and then donates them to worthy causes. I am certain there is some vet that will love the purple and the caring that goes into it.

Oh yes, very girly. Somebody had fun depleting her stash!

I love to see feminine QOV quilts. I don't see them very often and I'm certain some of our female soldiers and veterens would love something a little girly once in a while. Great job it is beautiful.
