Borders, BORDERS...Oh My!

Been on a Border Marathon during our recent arctic weather - adding borders to ALL those quilt tops our East Central IL Volunteer Members dropped off last week:

Multiple borders cut, ready to piece and add to several quilt tops - soon to be QOVs
Time to sew!

Adding the final third border to this really neat Patriotic Bar quilt
Time to admire ALL those wonderful patriotic borders:

This was already a really striking quilt top - the borders just made it POP!
What a wonderful TEAM effort - Doris created a really neat Patriotic Bar top and our borders finished it off nicely, don't you agree?

Flags & Stars frame out this neat Patriotic Bar QOV nicely
Another finished QOV top:

Three borders frame another stunning QOV quilt top
Some of the same border fabrics were used in this top w/very different results:

How wonderful this turned out - Great job, Doris, Love those stars!
And look what just arrived - a beautiful Quilt of Valor quilt top that will soon be entered into a MODA Quilt of Valor contest once yours truly gets it quilted.  Then, once competition and judging are complete in late March, 2015, it will be generously donated to our East Central IL QOV Group to be awarded to a very special QOV Award recipient AFTER it is entered into yet 'another' quilt competition ;-)  What a well traveled Quilt of Valor this one will soon be!

MODA Quilt of Valor competition quilt top - ready to be quilted!

What a privilege and honor to get to quilt ALL these incredible Quilts of Valor®...Thank YOU Doris and Cynthia M (Brand-NEW East Central IL QOV Volunteer Member) and Jackie W. for this incredible TEAM effort.

Thank goodness Miss Betty is FINALLY back on her quilting feet and ready to start her quilting engine...Let the quilting Begin!
