trimming the excess backing and batting from Oh My, Stars!
A local gentleman is a volunteer longarmer for Quilts of Valor (QOV) and was assigned by the national coordinator to quilt my latest batch of quilts. I gave him five QOV on Friday, January 20, 2017, and he called me on Sunday, January 22, 2017 and said they were ready to pick up. I was shocked that he quilted all five of them in such a short time. I wasn't expecting them for at least a week.
five QOV ready for hand-sewing January 2017
Yikes, now I had to get to work. Trimming went quickly, and the binding was made and ready to attach. The slowest part will be hand-tacking the binding, a task I dread.
