Does it count if I just finished the top of the quilt? I hope so. One of my January goals can now be checked off.
This is the Quilt of Valor top I was supposed to piece on New Years Day, and it only took me four days to do. I have excuses, but you probably don’t want to hear them. It’s based on Judy’s design, but much simpler. I had all the six inch squares of Alexander Henry (and other) firefighting prints, scraps from my pillowcases. I was impatient about the small borders, and had two yards of this large scale flag print, so the border is also six inches (finished). Simple, but bright, and I think the quilting will add interest.
I was surprised by how poorly the flag print photographed (indoors). I guess the gold in it reflects a lot of light. If my studio had an extra foot of space, I could have perhaps photographed it from an angle or something, but that is just not happening. The quilt top is 62″ x 82″.
How are you coming on your goals?
I’m linking up with Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
