    My first Quilt of Valor

    This is my first completed QOV. Blocks made by a fellow guild member. I love how "happy" this quilt came out.

    Thank you. The lovely lady who made the blocks is standing at the right. I am the one holding up the corner of the quilt. I really do like the way this came out. It was a hard decision as to what to do with the string blocks. I do like the way it came out. It is now off to the long arm lady.

    It's a wonderfully patriotic quilt that will surely be welcomed by a deserving vet

    I love it! It certainly is a busy, happy quilt! The lady who made it had a great collection of reds, whites and blues.
    Thank you to all of you for taking care of our heroes.

    To me, one of the neatest thing about this quilt -aside from it going to a veteran - is that Ginny included "Captain America" (his shields) fabric in some of the blocks. Hey, it's red, white and blue!

    Love it, love it, love it. Your QOV is so pretty and looks like it was fun to make. Thank you so much for sharing and some vet will be a lucky recipient.
