The first in the QOV line-up, is a Land Of The Free quilt top that came to us via the Quilts of Valor Stars Facebook Group. We added a final patriotic border, backing and started quilting!

Once bound/labeled and a QOV Presentation has been created, we will be awarding this Quilt of Valor to a Warrior coming off the battlefield overseas...Thank You to EVERYONE who helped make this Quilt of Valor possible. This Quilt of Valor is one of five that our East Central IL QOV group is making ready to ship to our overseas Warriors.
Another QOV that just came off the frame, quilted so quickly I only took one photo. It's panto quilted in the interior with Dave Hudson's Random Stars w/McTavishing in the borders:
This quilt top was donated to our East Central IL QOV group to be quilted/bound/labeled and awarded to one of our overseas Warriors by the Comfort Quilters of St. Joseph...Thanks, Donna G!
Speaking of the Comfort Quilters, we have another of their gorgeous Quilts of Valor currently on the frame getting quilted - the 'Uncle Sam' QOV. Pics will be forthcoming 'soon'.
And here it is ALL quilted out and coming off the frame:

blue Painter's Tape worked great!
|Border quilting - didn't this turn out neat?!|
Time for more quilting!
