Guardians and Defenders

Defenders of Freedom
Quilt of Valor
57 x 65
During the Superbowl, I worked on these two Quilts of Valor: the eagle panels were purchased at Country Traditions in Fremont, NE. The shop has a great selection of fabrics and a very friendly staff: Marilyn and I had a lot of fun shopping there.

These two quilts were sent yesterday to Donna S. in Longmont, CO to be quilted. After I attach the label and the binding, they will be sent to Alycia C. for distribution.

I made a quilt from this panel last year, too. It was called Eagle's Flight.

Update: May 15, 2013

Alycia, Colorado's QOV coordinator, showed these two quilts in today's blog post.

  5. I love seeing you taking on Quilts of Valor again. Inspired by you - I made a pillow cover for my friend and her husband - I even quilted it - not very well mind you, but I did it. g

  7. Good job. That is a good quilt shop in NE. I like the border fabric really sets the panel off.
