Stars of Valor

Stars of Valor flimsy
(without borders)
November 2013
I purchased the kit for this quilt in a silent auction at the local quilt guild's February show.

Before I went to Denver in June, I cut the fabric for easy, chain piecing. I worked on the star blocks while Marilyn worked on one of her quilts. When she reached a stopping point on her project, she worked on the nine-patches for Stars of Valor's sashing.

When I got home, this quilt project was put on hold. In July, I had company, so I didn't work on it. Then in August, I got caught up in a whirlwind of medical appointments, and the quilt marinated even more through September and October.

Last week, I finally turned on my sewing machine and finished sewing the stars and sashing together. I need to add the final border (out of the blue fabric) before this is a completed quilt top. I hope to have this Quilt of Valor finished before the end of November.

  5. It looks great right now so I can't wait to see it with the border. I so admire quilters! It is an amazing talent!! I was given a quilt for Christmas last year with the names and birth dates of all of our children and grandchildren in each square. I treasure it!
