Quilts of Valor and more

While working on the Quilts of Valor that are just completed, I also took the opportunity to make a ‘leaders and enders’ quilt for my grandson. These are squares and triangles that I kept beside the machine and are made from scraps leftover from other projects that I cut using the Accuquilt 3-1/2 inch strip cutter and the 3 inch finished half square triangle. The centers of each star are novelty prints.

The attic windows design seemed nicer than a standard sashing. This was a lot of fun to make and very quick to quilt using continuous curves in the 9 patch blocks and a single curvy line in the window frames.

 

 

And last – but not least – is the quilt label that I stitched for the Quilts of Valor. The main reason I purchased an embroidery machine was to make quilt labels – and then they never seemed to work very well. Finally, using a border from Embroidery Library and my own lettering, this is a very nice label.

  1. What size is your lettering? I also am struggling to make a decent looking label with my embroidery machine – the smaller sizes don’t look good. My software shows a 36 point Ariel as their smallest recommended size, but that is too big for many things (like miniature quilts).

  2. Love your label…one of these days I will have a machine that will do that! LOL Thanks for hosting the QOV effort and all the work you did. 🙂

  3. Love that quilt, and so will he! The fussy cut centers are adorable, and with that setting, it’s as if one is looking at the night sky through the window.
