|Just loaded this gorgeous Quilt of Valor|
|Swaggin' out those luscious borders|
|HQ 6" Swag templates make 'swaggin' a breeze ;-)|
And the corners are getting some special 'swag' treatments, too
|LOVE how the quilting turned out in these Friendship Stars!|
The red borders will get a corresponding/alternating swirl at the very end when ALL the other border swag quilting is completed so they can each be centered w/swags. In the meantime, having a blast Terry Twisting my way through the 4-patches and the blue stars:

UPDATE II 8/21/2014: This stunning QOV beauty has already been shipped and well on it's way to Mary Anne, the original creator, so she will now be able to bind/launder/label and prepare it for it's final tour of duty - to be awarded to a very deserving Veteran. It has been such a wonderful quilting experience and a true honor to quilt Mary Anne's gorgeous Quilt of Valor...Thank YOU!
For now, time to get some shut-eye so I can get back to it tomorrow!
