One of my goals for this month was to finish this Quilt of Valor. And it’s all done except for the label.
Still working on those machine bindings!
I used a panto from Urban Elementz called Malachite.
The standard Malachite panto is 10.75 inches wide. This one is 16 inches wide. Urban Elementz allows you to order pantos in custom sizes for a $2 up charge. Since my long arm, Friday, has a 24 inch throat, I can use larger pantos. So I decided to order a couple pantos in slightly larger sizes. I think it still looks good.
Here is a side by side comparison.
Obviously, the larger custom panto is a lot faster to quilt. It still gives great texture, but it also gives you a softer quilt.
Time to get that label done so this can be presented to a deserving veteran.
Have a great day!
