Finish It Up Friday ~ QOV 

I finished up another Quilt of Valor last week. This was made from a Minnick and Simpson jelly roll from their Polka Dots and Paisleys line. 

The block pattern was free on he Moda Bake Shop site and it is called Tropical Punch. Not very tropical here, but I liked the pattern!

I used a pantograph called Techno for the quilting. It is available from Digi-Tech.


Here are a couple shots taken after washing.


Have a great day!

    Wonderful, love the fabrics, the pattern and the quilting !

  2. Very pretty! I also wash my quilts before giving them away. I love the scrunchy softness of a washed quilt.

  3. Fabulous! What a great pattern for a QOV quilt.

    Love that pattern and panto! A Veteran is going to feel all the love that went into that.

  5. Very very nice! Striking for QOV

  6. I really like this quilt! It looks even better in these colors than in the tropical ones. Lots of great contrast, and the way you put the reddish blocks in the middle with the blue ones surrounding works so well. Great finish on a fun quilt!

    I like the fabrics in this line, and they work great for a QOV. Lovely work, as usual, Katy! Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. Great finish, Katy! It’s a beautiful QOV, with all the right colours but it doesn’t scream “patriotic” 🙂

    I loved it, too, when you showed those first few blocks and had to start one of my own!! I’ve gotten 8 blocks done and several more cut but am hip deep in helping my son move into his new house (have to go wait for the pod to arrive today). But will get back to them VERY soon!! Yours is gorgeous!

    I love this quilt! I love how they look after being washed, nice and soft and crinkly. Hugs,

    This is a nice one. I really love the Quilts of Valor program, and one of the best nights of my life was getting to participate in a banquet where a whole returning injury unit was awarded quilts. I was overwhelmed with their gratitude. This one is going to be loved!

    Very nice. Thank you for sharing your talents with one who served.

  18. I like this pattern. I keep seeing patterns I want to make but don’t have enough time to make everything. I need to retire!! LOL

    The top looks great, and I like the way the quilting extends into the border, too.
