Chimneys and Cornerstones QOV

Today I've got another finished quilt. I finally feel like I'm making progress. I've always got a QOV in the works. HST's make great leader enders and I love how versatile they are. This is my 3rd QOV and I also made one for our boy, and the red and blue boxes are still overflowing.

I love making these quilts to honor our veterans. We don't have a QOV group anywhere in the vicinity, but there is always a need and at the Quilts of Valor site, there is a spot where you can request a destination where you can send your QOV.

This hst layout is called chimney's and cornerstones:


Once again, Jackie did a great job quilting this:

I pretty much let her make the quilting decisions, and she always chooses the perfect design.

I found this piece for the backing at Hobby Lobby:


This one measures 65 x 80", and hopefully, whoever receives it will know that my sincerest thanks for their service and sacrifice and prayers are stitched within.

I hope that one day there will not be a need for these, but until that day arrives, I'll just keep making them.

Those red, white and blue quilts make me catch my breath. So patriotic!!! I, too, think the layout is exceptional.

What a beautiful QOV. I have used this pattern before for just a scrappy QOV. In fact, I think one of the 7 that I am putting bindings on is this pattern. I'll have to check. We are making great progress on our 100 for the MO unit too. They are so appreciated by those receiving them. Thank you for supporting our troops.

It sure is wonderful! The backing is awesome! Couldn't be more perfect! It sure would be wonderful if there was no need for these quilts anymore!
