I have been working on this off and on since last winter, fianlly got it done. I learned a lot, mostly that I don't think I will try to quilt the Quilt of Valor I made. I put too much money into it to ruin it with my quilting. I have some small ones to do, then may have more confidence. I did notice that my stitches improved somewhat towards the end in that they were more even. This makes me appreciate the longarm quilting I see on the board even more than I already did, if that's even possible. Not sure what I will do with the first one. I could bind it and give it to a homeless shelter, or cut it into pieces to give to an animal shelter.
