Patriotic Finishes for Friday!!!

Whoot Whoot!!  TWO!! Finishes..... well as finished as I get Quilts of Valor !!  You know I always like to spread the love, so someone else will add the binding....  ;-)

One of our Flags for Sue Tops. I pieced it, and well - I sorta really liked the gold so I decided I wanted to Quilt it ...and me, having it in my possession.... did just that!!

and the next one is a top that Kevin the Quilter made for us!
He came and spoke to our guild
( and of course, stayed with me - cuz my husband said he would cook.... Kevin knew it was safe!!)

and he left this top
and then he emailed me the block
and I promptly lost the information.
BUT!!  Never fear

I also have used this block - with my 30's prints Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2015 so I can tell you what I used!

Are you ready?

A close up of the quilting 

Hope you all had a great week
I was sorta shocked to find out that yesterday was Thursday, not Tuesday
..... sigh!

The gold is a great frame. It's fun when you are so inspired by a quilt that you can quickly see it through to a finish.

Donna said...

Both quilts are lovely! The quilting looks wonderful! You have been busy!

Sandra Walker said...

Great quilts here, and cool that you got one fro Kevin.

Leanne Parsons said...

They're both beautiful! The gold really does make a fabulous frame around the flag blocks. Thanks for linking with TGIFF this week :)

Preeti said...

Two beautiful finished. Love the gold - it is unusual and definitely a bright choice. Thanks for the link for the block pattern. It is something that I may try with my scraps. have a great weekend!

Ramona said...

Those flags are so amazing on the cheddar background! Love it! I have been meaning to say that I would happily bind quilts for you, if you needed that help. I live in Loveland, but we could arrange to meet somewhere if ever you wanted some binding done. I love to sew bindings!

Love the gold! And you know what? Today is not only Friday, but also November. November! Color me surprised!

Both of those turned out great! I couldn't choose a favorite. Want to make one of each!!

Great quilts! Congrats to you and Kevin. Yes, time is flying by way too quickly.

Love both quilts, but especially the strip quilt made with 2 1/2 strips. We have a mountain of them - I suspect they multiply when we turn the lights out! I will suggest this pattern to my QOV group at our next meeting. Thanks and keep up your fantastic work. I love your blog.

I would never have thought to put the gold on the flags for Sue quilt, but it works beautifully! Great job! I really like Kevin's quilt and thanks for the link!
