    Quilt of Valor

    My first. I did learn I'm not fond of jelly roll races.

    I love it & you done a great job on it. I am sure it will be truly loved by the person that receives it. Everything about it is great. You are such a kind person for making this for such a deserving person.

    Actually I like it too, I think it makes a very nice QOV. I have a certain jelly roll that I plan to use for a quilt of this kind, but it just hasn't made its way up my list of Sooner than Laters.

    I like the stars in the corner. I am with you, I found that I didn't care much for the process because mine didn't turn out nearly as pretty as yours.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I agree, I don't care for the Jelly Roll Race quilt, but yours looks great. The Stars in the border were a great touch. Good job.

    I do like the stars on your border!

    Good job! I'm not fond of the jelly roll race either but you've added elements that give it some interest - the borders and stars.

    First QOV and first jelly roll race. I had the hardest time getting it square, which may have been due to the strips themselves. I must say that it went really fast though.

    I am not a fan of jelly roll race either but you did a lovely job especially adding the stars in the border.

    I love it and know what you mean about the jelly roll race. But here's the thing, your boarder is just great by using the light color fabric with the stars!!!!! Nice Job.
