My next Quilt of Valor is a variation of a pattern a friend sent me:
The pattern is Sail On, by Eileen Fowler. It was published in EASY QUILTS SPRING 2019:
I thought if I changed the construction, I would have fewer seams. And that is true. The downside? I now have partial seams to deal with. So the trade-off may not have been worth it. But once I started, I was committed. "In for a penny, in for a pound".
The quilting will delineate the star blocks--essentially putting the "seams" back in visually. I hope to have it ready to quilt before April is over. But maybe not... There are a lot of flying geese in that border.
This weekend was "hang a quilt on your house" weekend so I did:
|Gift of Love from the Sunday Sew and Sews|
|It's a good day to read on the porch swing|
|Antique Rose Star--one of my most favorite quilts|
