Quilting the Super Cool Awesome Quilt of Valor

Oh My Gosh!!  I had SO much fun quilting this one .... I just played, I just layed the top on the ground and thought of texture.... so I loaded the quilt, turned my CD player on.  ( yes I am still a CD'er.... )  and quilted!!   Until the buzzer rang for me to go get the kid!

Are you ready for a lot of photos??? Here we go!


I quilted this little swirly star in the stars.
You kind of start in the middle, then swing out, and meet back at your start - so it looks like its one motif. 

I also used a puffy batting...


A side view
can you see the puff ;-)



A top shot

Then I feathered the Zigs ( or the Zag - your choice)




Ta-Da!!
A couple of top shots.
I couldn't find my step stool - so I had to reach 


I put pebbles - lots of varying sized pebbles in the Cream. I love them - you can't work yourself into a corner - you just backtrack along a pebble to get where you want to go - LOVE them!!


Oh!! YOu can see the feathers much better from this angle....



So.... There you go - That is the Super Cool Awesome Quilt of Valor - also known as Stars and Stripes!!  I will take mine Sunday to our sew day and bind it - and label it - and it will be complete!

The full pattern can be found at  AlyciaQuilts on Craftsy

Wow, what an awesome QOV, and the quilting is to die for! I've got all the pieces cut, and all the half square triangle blocks are made. This "kit" will go with me to a quilt retreat soon.
