2 by 2...w/Border/Binding/Label Updates

Quilting 2 by 2 = two quilts on the frame at the same time!  That's how I'm 'starting' to get caught up w/ALL my frame quilting in between staining my deck ;-)

Just loaded the 'second' quilt top and starting to quilt
See the first Quilt of Valor on the pole just above the second?  You can tell by the fine line of batting in between each quilt.  Here's a better look at the first quilt - a Quilt of Valor I created about a month ago and just now getting it quilted - it's been a little crazy busy lately ;-)

Stars, swirls/furls, and of course a McTavished border!
This is another strip-pieced patriotic quilt w/additional borders to finish it out.  Here's a full pic of this top prior to quilting:

Strip-pieced Quilt of Valor w/patriotic borders from Valor fabrics
Love adding swirls and furls to a QOV to go along w/stars
This Quilt of Valor ALL finished up w/binding and ready for labeling
And then I got to load this lovely quilt from those very busy Quilters for Comfort ladies, just back from their annual SewFest, where they spend almost a week creating wonderful quilts for our Veterans.  This one will be going to a VA Home in Missouri.  It's getting some stars and McTavishing to enhance its patriotic features:
McTavishing w/Rainbows Patriotic in the borders
Stars and furls in the interior

They're both almost finished - just a couple more passes of the stars/furls and the final McTavished border, and they'll be ready to come off the frame for binding and labeling.  There's two more neat Veteran's quilts from those QFC ladies, but first will be adding a border or two for each wonderfully patriotic quilt, which gives 'Miss Betty' & I even more quilting real estate ;-).

UPDATE 10/9/2014 - Coming off the frame:

All finished up - quilted/laundered/bound and...

Isn't this a gorgeous Quilt of Valor?!
Just received this stunning Quilt of Valor from Clairellen and those Quirky Quilters in Michigan - they've been at it again!  

I am sooo privileged to get to quilt such amazing quilts for ALL these talented and productive quilters...Thanks a bunch you busy QFC Ladies, and especially those Quirky Quilters!

Time to get back to it...

  1. Deb loved your quilting. It was fun to see your quilting on the quilt I put together from my orphan blocks at sew fest Knew it needed lots of quilting as the blocks varied from where they came from. Great job Mary from Quilters for Comfort.

    1. Thanks a bunch, Mary - my pleasure! You ladies have been sooo generous to me and my Quilts of Valor passion, this is just a small token of my appreciation for ALL your generosity and efforts...Thank YOU!

      And your wonderful quilt will soon be coming off the frame later today!

      Happy Quilting,
