Monday evening this came off the longarm!
It’s for the Quilt of Valor program & will most likely to given to a local Veteran.
If you’re not familiar with the Quilts of Valor program, I high recommend checking out their website. It’s a fantastic program that supports combat veterans & those who were touched by war.
It was pieced by Anna D. & she used the Disappearing 9-Patch pattern. This is a great pattern for scraps & works up quickly!
I used a new pantograph, Zebra by Hermoine Agee- it reminds me of the flag waving in the breeze.
For the backing Anna used the 10″ square method. I’ve never used a backing like this before & I was quite impressed by how easily it worked. It’s also nice because it guarantees the longarmer to have enough extra fabric. We need the extra room in a backing in order to pin it to our leaders (that’s how we get the quilts on the frame) & for our clamps to hold the sides to prevents puckers.
It was a joy to quilt & I can’t wait to longarm Anna’s next quilt! The recipient is sure to love this quilt.
