American Glory

American Glory
58 X 73
Quilt of Valor
I purchased several of the center panels for quilts, and this is the last one. None of the panels were straight, and they drove me crazy.

Hopefully, I will be able to make more Quilts of Valor in 2014 than I did in 2013.

  4. Panels always seem like they are going to be easy to use, but it envariably turns out to be the opposite. This quilt turned out nice!

  7. Wonderful!! Love the way it turned out. I know some wounded warrior will be so pleased with this one. Thank you for your service to our service members.

    Panels can be a challenge. I finally resorted to pulling on the bias to try and straighten. Sometimes it will take 2-3 times of pulling to get it pretty square. It also helps to mist it with water before pulling. You can measure across the diagonals to check when it gets square. Hope these tips help if you should get more panels.

  10. You did a great job with it. I would never guess it didn't start out straight and square. I love the design too.

  17. Beautiful Nancy! I also found that these panels were wonky. I learned in 8th grade sewing class to take the "short" diagonal side and stretch it diagonally, working your way down to the middle of the panel. Give it a few good stretches and then fold it over to see if it's true. It worked for both of my panels that I used and I still have one more! PS. Love the amber waves od grain knitted blanket. Sorry to hear you have a bad apple in the bunch. Disappointing huh? Take care, I look her often even if I don't comment.
