Clean Sweep

Clean Sweep
Quilt of Valor
56 x 70 inches
Clean Sweep started with one of the silent auction, eagle napkins. The stars surrounding the eagle were remnants of Liberty, a previous Quilt of Valor. The three patch units in the next segment were leftover from Stars and Stripes and Firecrackers. The corner blocks and the blocks in the final border were leftover from Plan B.

The reason this quilt was named Clean Sweep: it emptied the orphan Quilt of Valor elements bin.

Clean Sweep is QOV #116

  3. This one looks very *commanding* to me. I hope it goes to someone that was of a high rank during their military career.

    From the musical Hamilton --- "it is the epitome of the modern Major General". ;-)

  4. This. This was the absolute perfect use for all of those blocks. I wish I had just one iota of the talent you have in knowing how to put those leftover blocks together to make something that is this beautiful.
    Blessings, Betsy

  5. I love everything about this quilt. I think the most beautiful designs come from using up what we have on hand and using scraps from other quilt projects. This is awesome!

  7. I love how modern this quilt looks -- with a touch of tradition provided by the eagle. Great job. You are amazing -- 116 QOVs. Wonderful job. (Do you want some more elements? Just let me know...)

  9. You always chose the best names for your wonderful quilts and this one came together beautifully! It's very satisfying to pull this and that, remaining from previous projects, and design a quilt, isn't it? And another veteran will be very grateful you are so good at it!
