Stained Glass

Stained Glass
Quilt of Valor
57 x 71 inches
Stained Glass (QOV #93) was the last project I worked on during the Sisters' Sew-in in late April. The blocks were finished and the black sashing added in Denver, but the border wasn't added until last week.

The pattern I used was PineTree Lodge Designs (Whirligigs): it offers a variety of designs that can be made with the basic blocks. Here are two other quilts I've made with the pattern:
    Star Gazer -- QOV #11
    Whirligig  -- QOV # 77

You may remember from earlier posts that I've also used the "bonus" or "waste" triangles, created by this pattern to make other blocks for more Quilts of Valor.
       Simply Stars -- QOV #80
       Calico Stars -- QOV #81

Stained Glass provided a fresh batch of bonus HSTs.

Stained Glass was awarded to a veteran on February 28, 2017. An online article about the presentation is found on County 10

  1. This one is particularly lovely!

  2. What a pretty quilt! I love seeing the different designs that can be made with the same basic blocks.

  3. I like how the black borders set off the colors. Beautiful work, Nancy.

  4. Love the name...it is a perfect fit.

  5. I heard a TV decorator once say that every room needs a little touch of black to make the whole thing come together. I'm convinced that is true of quilts too. Love that black sashing.

  6. Lovely Nancy . I love the blue border.

  7. Very nice, I love the way you have played with colour in each of the blocks and how they all harmonize so nicely.

  8. Gorgeous! What a neat pattern.
