First 4-H Quilt Of Valor coming off the frame...

The very first Clark County 4-H Quilt of Valor from the QOV SPIN Club is coming off the frame on, how appropriate - Armed Forces Day...hoorah!

Phillip's Quilt of Valor coming off the frame!
You'll remember, Phillip was the first one to finish his QOV quilt top, and I promised to quilt each top in the order they were completed...CONGRATS, Phillip!

Here are a few pics of this really neat QOV quilt being quilted:

McTavished outside border

This is why I LOVE McTavishing:
Wavy border challenge

Wavy borders can be a challenge to deal with and they're far more common than most realize:
 
Pinning/ease-stitching the challenging border in place

One of my very favorite solutions is McTavishing and here's why:
McTavishing can 'absorb' ALL that extra fabric and tame a challenging border or quilt

The stars and loop panto is a better view from the back:

Last pass - all ready to come off the frame:

Phillip's Quilt of Valor Stats:  

Congratulations, Phillip - your Quilt of Valor will look even more wonderful once it's bound and labeled, terrific job!

It has been a true honor and pleasure to play a role in helping create this Quilt of Valor...Thank YOU!

And now to load Anna's Quilt of Valor for quilting...
