    It's been so long since I spent time in the Board and I feel sort of lost with all the posts to recheck and photos to look at. Everyone's been so busy and doing lovely pieces of art.

  2. Quilts of Valor

    by , 04-27-2014 at 12:11 PM (From My Carolina Home)
    It was a rainy weekend, so I used the time to finish up the quilting on two quilts of valor. I used pantographs on both quilts. The star quilt got a simple swirl. It is a great panto because it can go two passes without having to advance the quilt. This makes the quilting go nice and quick.
