This gorgeous QOV top was made by Val. Those little stars are pieced!
I love this panto and felt it really suited this quilt. But I remembered halfway down the first row that I don’t love quilting it.
You would think it would be simple, but for some reason, I have a heck of a time following it!
At the end of the third row, I had to change bobbins. I didn’t realize until I had done another three rows, that I grabbed a different color bobbin. I had to walk away for a few hours while I pondered ripping out those last three rows. I decided it would become a pattern. I quilted three rows with light gray in the bobbin and then three rows with dark gray, switching back and forth until I got to the end. It is hard to see in the photo above, but it is more obvious close up.
This panto has a fair amount of backtracking in the words and I just couldn’t bring myself to spend hours and hours ripping it all out. So sorry, Val!
If you are so inclined to try this panto for yourself, it is available from Urban Elementz .
I often have people ask me about patterns when I show these Quilts of Valor. I’d love to help, but since I haven’t made the tops, I don’t have any pattern info. Sorry I can’t help with pattern names!
Have a great day!
