    Default My 1st QOV - Martha's Valor - because of the brave with the love and support of those at home...

    I finished my 1st QOV quilt! I have worked on it over about four months. I mentioned it earlier when I was asking about pillow case sizes.
    I had to create a custom size pattern for the Martha Washington Stars since I mistakenly cut all of my half square triangle fabric too short (whoops). Waste not, the pattern was a save. The quilt inspiration came from an image of a QOV quilt in Fons and Porter.
    I quilted it "custom" on my longarm.

    The blue triangles have Eagles. The stripes have ribbons and stars. The rest of the quilt is a mix of designs.

    As I worked on this, it found its story. The story of Martha Washington and her service to Vetrans is outstanding. This quilt honors both service and sacrifice of American service men, women, and their families.

    Oh, almost forgot, the backing is fabric with signatures of the founding fathers...

    You did a great job. It looks terrific. I, too, really liked this design when I first saw it.
