    Default A touch of Tribute Quilts of Valor top

    We have to name these and sometimes I think that is the hardest part. I have named this one "A Touch of Tribute".

    I am considering using the stripped fabric on diagonal as the binding. I know some may question the border I chose but is it a very light gold and I think it will work great as a buffer between the quilt and the binding. I was getting close to too big and had to limit border size.

    Hope you like this top. I will hand it off to be long arm quilted and hopefully the veteran that gets it loves it.

    What a WONDERFUL quilt! I love the pattern (what is it?) and the fabrics. I think your border and binding fabric are awesome. I am going to be doing quilts for veterans (my Fred is one) and think this is a really nice pattern.

    It is called the Kindred pinwheel. Jenny id the tutorial. Normally the pinwheels are inside a white or light surrounding. I did it scrappy so there are some blocks that are dark on the outer parts. You will enjoy doing the QOV. Go to one of the presentations. The first one I ever attended was for 100 sailors that had returned from an extended deployment in a war zone. A young man came up later and thanked us. I looked at the one he was handling and I said I think I made that. He said are you Diane and I said yes. Then he wanted our photo taken. Another young man walked up and said he had always wanted one and was honored to have it. I have had WWII vets call to tell me thank you. It makes your heart feel good. My husband is a 20 year retired sailor so it is special to me.
