Sand Boxes

Finally after 384 days, the Sand Boxes quilt is finished and ready for its journey to a machine quilter. The project was stalled for months on end, but came together nicely. I added two borders to meet the size requirements for a Quilt of Valor.

The backing fabric was tucked away in my sewing room. I remember buying it two or three years ago for another project, but it works perfectly for this quilt top.

Using a similar blue, and the backing fabric, I made a presentation case for the quilt, using this video tutorial on the Quilt of Valor site.

Now, I need to prepare a label and binding, and the quilt is good to go.

Sand Boxes has been quilted by Alycia and will soon be given to a soldier. Thank you Alycia for quilting this top for me and for sending these photos for my record.
