Finish It Up Friday ~ Quilts of Valor

Happy Friday, everyone! I’ve been working on Quilts of Valor for the Stitching Sisters group and have saved them all up to show you today. This first top was made by Val. I love the pattern. 

This log cabin top was pieced by Karen. 



This lovely top was pieced by Kathy. 



 A Carpenter’s Star, also by Karen. 



 This last one was also pieced by Val. I hadn’t custom quilted any of hers yet and this one just begged for it! It took longer but I think it was worth it. 



 And one more shot because I just love the texture and it really shows here. 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! 

Linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Richard and Tanya Quilts, Crazy Mom Quilts, Quilt Shop Gal
