|'Miss Betty' quilting out patriotic star panto|
This Quilt of Valor has been in our quilt queue for quite awhile and just now came up. I like to keep Red/White/Blue patriotic QOVs on hand for 'emergencies', and I created this one with that in mind several months ago.
We knew exactly how we wanted to quilt it with our trademark panto in the center, custom quilting in the borders - complete with our 'flavor' of McTavishing:

|McTavish quilting in the borders w/Rainbows Patriotic in the needle|
Should be able to finish up quilting later today.
Also got some long-awaited QOV quilt blocks finished and ready to ship:
|Dandy Stars - created extra for the QOV Stars Facebook Group|
|Basket of strips for the Stars & Bars QOV, along w/high-tech cutting list -|
a recycled junk mail envelope complete w/patriotic color theme ;-)
|East Central IL QOV Signature Quilt - in progress|
Got the inspiration from one of my favorite Quilt Ladies, Jenny of Missouri Star Quilt Company:
Made in Red/White/Blue, the central 'white' strip can be used as a Signature block and ultimately Signature QOV quilt! We have TONS of the red/white/blue sig blocks waiting to be signed and turned into QOVs. Thought I'd sew the first one as a model for those to come. I'll post pics of our progress in upcoming blog posts...
Time to get back to it!
