Another Quilt of Valor

Saturday evening I got my QOV loaded on the machine. I am going to Nashville on Wednesday and want to be able to hand deliver the quilt to my friend Jim. Mom gave Jim her QOV quilt for his friend, Jeramy, and she said Jim got a little teary eyed. I am already worried what will happen when the quilt is for him! (Yes, I will make sure someone is taking pictures.)

Anyway, Sunday I got one pass quilted - loopy-loops and free-hand stars. This morning I finished it up. Then I had a very attractive offer to help me unpin the quilt. I can't refuse an offer like that!

This is the label from Jim's quilt. The quote is from the song "Hail Columbia" which was written to be performed at George Washington's inauguration in 1789.


I really like the flag fabric. Me and Nines found it at Hobby Lobby in Tennessee.

Very nice indeed and I am sure that he will love it.

Sarah, may I ask you what brand longarm machine you have? I am looking still for the best option just sort of selling my house to pay for a machine!! Please feel free to email me if you'd like!

What an adorable pic of Ian! Too cute!

I'm teary eyed as well. Hugs ((O)) to you for completing your QOV for Jim. He'll be so grateful to receive it from you personally! How beautiful!

And the quilt is beautiful too! You quilting shows it off so nicely. Great job, Sarah.

By the way...what sheets do you purchase at Walmart for your printer? I'm interested! But no hurry....

Sarah - I can tell by reading all your posts that you have a heart of gold. Jim is surely blessed to have someone in his life like you. Beautiful quilt!

I think your un-pinning assistant is just the right size to fit there! You'd better keep him around. :)

Nines said...

Wow! Didn'tthat quilt up so nice? No, I am sorry I won't be meeting you in Tennessee. But I'll be thinking of you. Kiss Ian's neck for me- right in that little divet.
