Know what I love about summer? It doesn't get dark until almost 9pm.... and that to me... means MORE time!!!
I have been wanting to play with some designs that I found online for Quilts of Valor - but I sometimes feel like I "have to get it done" so I go with something that is less 'experimental'
My goal this summer.... experiment!!
So here are two of the first experiments:
This quilt was pieced by Connie out of the Moda Just One Star Blocks.
I wanted to try putting something over the star, and quilt something else in the blocks - but Like borders?
Below - is what I came up with.
This is another quilt that Connie made. Isn't it cool? I knew I was going to quilt it with a Pantograph. I already had one set up from a client quilt and I knew it would work.... but..... Remember Ron? The guy who puts an Americana Symbol in his Quilts of Valor ( he quilts for Meredith in AZ)
Look at me!!! I did it!!! The only thing I wish I had done differently was to complete the box around the emblem... But I learned something. And it was FUN!!
For other Finished Fridays - head over to
PS... My other goal for summer... Tame the Scraps...
There are three more Fabric Listings in my Etsy Store... see if you need them for your projects!!
