Putting Together a Special Quilt of Valor, creating borders for another...

Finished piecing a special Quilt of Valor quilt top that will be delivered next week:

Liberty Quilt of Valor quilt top - ready to be quilted
Got some borders pieced together for another wonderful Quilt of Valor that will soon be presented to a very deserving Veteran:

Drawing the miter line to piece the borders, then pinning in place

Piecing the borders together w/mitered seams
Here's an example of how I trim my mitered borders using my rotary cutter and ruler w/1/4" seam markings:

Mitered seams trimmed down to a 1/4" - ready to be pressed and attached to quilt top

And now I'm off to make some more of those Hearth & Home QOV blocks - having lots of FUN creating these.  Once I decide how I'm going to embroider the centers, I'll post some pics!
