This week, I was finally able to present Daughter #2 with her Quilt of Valor. This was the hardest QOVs I have ever made. None of my ideas seemed good enough. I felt emotional at times working on it while she was deployed. This month marks the end of her six year enlistment. I could not be more proud of her service to our country.
And now, here are the quilt pictures.
Most of the “Stars” have red points. But there are six using the blue star print. These represent her six years of service. I also included a few pieces of fabric from some of her ABUs.
I couldn’t believe I found this fabric that has the oath of enlistment on it!
I have included patriotic fabrics, but I didn’t want this to be an in your face patriotic quilt.
Here is the back.
Pierre gave his approval, which is important as he was her first dog.
Here are a few pictures from the presentation.
