Finish It Up Friday

I finally have pics of my completed Quilt of Valor. Seems like I have had this one in process forever. So without further ado:

By the way, while I was still struggling with how to quilt this, I sent a picture to Kathleen at Kathleen Quilts. She is a master machine quilter. She took my picture and created a quilting plan! It was way better than my plan but since I had already started quilting, it was too late to change my plan. I wish I had waited! Click here to see what she would have done with my quilt!

Linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Can I Get a Whoop Whoop?, Richard and Tanya Quilts for Link a Finish Friday, and Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday.

    Turned out great! Kathleen’s picture is interesting, but yours looks very cuddly. Sure to make a veteran very happy!

    I was going to say the samething Mari said. Yours looks very cuddly and I’m sure the veteran that receives it will be very happy with it.

  7. Katy, it is so pretty! I really like how you quilted it, and I like the red backing too. I wouldn’t have thought of that but it is extremely effective! Yay for you!!
