Heartstrings Quilt of Valor

This quilt was sent to me from Sue at HeartStrings Headquarters( ... I am not sure if they were group blocks or a finished top but it is perfect for a Quilt of Valor. Now if you look close the White that is used in the border.... I HAVE!!! So I mixed it with another white that had flags on it for the backing and it looks perfect!!
While bonding with my couch a two weeks ago I watched Dawn Ramirez's Pajama Quilter and I really like the wonky feathers. So I drew them on paper and thought I was ready to take them to a quilt. So that is what I quilted on this. I don't know if they look just like Dawns - but I have to tell you - I like how it turned out. I used Quilters Dream Dream Puff batting and I think it is very snuggly! If you click on the pictures they should get bigger if you want to see more detail.
Which would be perfect for a day like today - the wind is blowing about 35 mph and gusting to 60 - its just nuts and I don't like it anymore.... We had snow and rain yesterday - but the wind has blown any good moisture away.
So I guess I had better get back to quilting and do something useful (grin)

It looks great Alycia, I like your wonky feathers! I'm getting ready to quilt one of the simple flowers from Dawn's DVD today - wish me luck!

I love the patriotic tops. You did a great job on the quilting.

When you get to mine would you have someone take your pic working on it?
