Labor Day Project

My community service Labor Day project was to quilt this Signature Stars Quilt of Valor. My friend, Mary and her sewing group from the Oconomowoc Quilt Guild pieced this quilt using signature squares the Guild had gathered during the Oconomowoc Art Festival in August. Mary and her group are very prolific as this is their third quilt for the Upper Midwest Quilts of Valor and they have plans for 2 more!

I took a few extra pictures so that the gals will have to put into the album about the construction of this quilt when it goes to it's Forever Home.

Popcorn from Willow Leaf Studio was on the table so Mary suggested that I use that panto, which is definitely okay by me! :)

The group did a terrific job on the quilt and so are you with the quilting. I do love that popcorn panto! Good of you to donate your time to do this.

I do love red, white, and blue, beautiful! How is your machine quilting coming along? It sure looks good in the picture. I feel like I'm making good progress with pantos, am much better at staying on the line. Still not much interested in free motion, but I suppose that will come.

I just realized I've got that same fabric you used for the backing. I've gotten a lot of mileage out of mine, used it on three or more quilts. My LQS told me they keep reprinting it, which is unusual. Did you know it's available in green and red too?
