Quilt of Valor

Diana Richards, the Indiana Quilts of Valor coordinator will be our guest at guild this week. I wanted to get this one finished to give to her. It's a Disappearing 9-Patch that I started a year and a half ago to use as a demo for the other guild.

I really like this setting for Disappearing 9-Patch quilts. I chose to use a light fabric in the center square, red fabrics in the corners and blue in the center top, bottom and sides. After cutting they are all arranged with the same orientation, rather than mixing them up.

Star and Crescent is the panto by Keryn Emmerson and I used Old Gold PermaCore thread.

And the back:

I will finish the binding and label and make a pillowcase tonight to go with it.
