QOV on the way Home

This Quilt of Valor is quilted on on the way home.

The layout of this quilt included twenty of the 14" unfinished blocks.

With the sashing and borders the quilt finished at 78 by 92 inches.

It was one of the larger quilts I have done on my home machine.

I used a dark blue varigated King Tut  quilting thread that disappeared into the backing fabric.

To keep the clean crisp look of the white stars and sashing I did straight line quilting, 
SITD and Echo quilting.

I used no pins or basting spray.
I used Warm & Natural batting and smoothed and squared the quilt sandwich well.
I did not get one wrinkle or pucker in this quilting, front or back.

Katniss helped.

For the outer border I did straight lines an inch apart.

Butterfly helped by making me take frequent rests to keep my back happy.

Butterfly thinks every quilt should be for her.

Not this time, Butterfly.

May Seaman Andrew enjoy his quilt!
