Onto Finished Friday ... At the beginning of July I signed up as a Quilts of Valor volunteer longarm quilter.  I was quickly connected with someone living in the same town as me.  Funny thing is that she also used to work with my parents, what a small world!  She said the closest person she had ever quilt for her was about an hour and a half away.  Well, no more!  She gave me two quilts that her quilt guild worked on putting together.

They are scrappy quilts and were a lot of fun to work on and practice some new designs, mainly the echoed feather border.  I have been terrified of echoing, but it ended up not being so bad.  You'll also notice that I put little stars scattered throughout the feathers just for fun.

Less talk, more pictures ...

I finished up the second quilt last night, but haven't had a chance to photograph it.  That will be a post for next week.  Thanks Judy for letting me quilt your quilts!

  1. Hey, way to go with busting out the echoes. :D I am such a baby at getting over myself and actually trying out something that has been intimidating me. And, yes - 9 times out of 10, it really wasn't that bad at all. lol!! Love the stars slipped in with the feathers for a QOV. Thanks for donating your services for that program. Those quilts are so very appreciated when they're awarded! If you ever get a chance to attend a gifting, jump on it. :D Thanks for linking at TGIFF.
