More Quilts Of Valor

This past week these two scrappy QOV's were completed.

They were pieced by Nancy in Montrose, CO. Nancy's DH requires full time care so she uses her home bound time well, piecing quilts, many for missional purposes such as the outreach to our heroic wounded warriors.

To save some time these two tops were loaded on the long arm together after joining their identical backings with a basting stitch.

The tops were not quite the same length but that did not matter and a single piece of batting was used for both tops to keep it all even and smooth.

The quilting is the easy and fast freehand peacock feathers but they still need labels before I mail them off to Alycia for distribution through the military hospital chaplains.
Today another CW replica memorial quilt is going off to the mother of CW4 David Carter, one of the pilots of the Chinook helicopter that was shot down in Afghanistan in August.
There is a post and pics. on the HOB blog here.

Lovely! You are so clever to put them both up together.
