Patriotic Postage Stamp QOV

22 10 2014

From time to time, I longarm quilt tops made by members of the Fayetteville Quilts of Valor group. You can read about the Quilts of Valor Foundation here.


This remarkable quilt top was made by Susan. It contains over 700 2″ squares which she cut from the small scraps left over from other QOVs. Susan espouses Bonnie Hunter’s method of cutting her scraps into strips and squares of useable, standard widths.

Did you notice the wonky gold stars sprinkled throughout the quilt?

The quilting design is freehand meandering with five-point stars in honey colored polyester thread.

Any soldier would be proud to receive this wonderful quilt!

Love this one! Could you please bring this one and the Gypsy wife to the next modern meeting? I’d love to use them to illustrate a point….

Awesome quilt. My first reaction was “I wanna make this”. Now I have all day to sew on this rainy Wednesday and I’m thinking about cutting up squares!!! Lol
