Sandi's Quilt ( a Quilt of Valor)

I have a friend.... Yep - I really do, she even admits to  knowing me in public!!  She is that kind of friend!!

She and her group of amazing seamstresses made this Quilt of Valor, and I got to quilt it!!

I think it is quite a stunner!!




Isn't that just gorgeous!!
So many people asked how she did it - that she was kind enough to answer

( which is impressive, sometimes I forget how I did things!)

. I used a 10 1/2"muslin foundation, then started in the center with a triangle shape that was about 13"tall and 7"wide. Then string piece on both sides and squared it to 10".


I wish she had borrowed some of my strings though - then maybe my lid would shut.....

And because you wanted to see my kid fly through the air....



He's already tall - but shew - he gets way tall !

Happy Stitching!

Love the string quilt!! thank you Sandy and Alycia for sharing the how to :)

I have a son that did hurdles in school, when he first started jumping them they came up to his chest!! It was amazing to watch him jump, he just sailed right over them...
