Here's just a little sneak peak of how my Quilt of Valor is coming along.  I've finished piecing the top and am giving it a final press with a light misting of starch to really flatten my seams. I also use a q-tip to put a bit of extra starch at the intersecting seams so that they stay down during the quilting process.


My hubby has promised to help me get a good picture of this top outside before it goes off to the long-armer, but it's hard to get motivated when it's 13 degrees outside. We did have a little sun yesterday, and it looked so pretty coming through the quilt top. It reminds me of stained glass.


I'm also linking up again with Lily's site for her small blog meet
Small Blog Meet

I always love visiting new blog sites. It's crazy how many great blogs are out there; I just can't keep up! So if you're visiting from Lily's, make sure to leave me a comment so that I can head to your site and return the favor. :)


  1. I just popped over from the small blog meet and love your quilt of valor. It's really pretty. What I can't understand is why you can't take it outside in 13 degree weather? :) We have had such a mild winter this year, I hope it's not another scorcher of a summer. I hope it does warm up for you so you can take an outside pic. Also welcome to blogging!! When you get the chance I would love for you to stop by and have a look at my blog when you get the chance. I hope your staying warm and having a great day!

  2. Wow, that is a beautiful quilt top!

  3. This quilt is absolutely gorgeous! I especially like the picture with the sun going through it. I can't imagine 13 degrees, I'm have the air conditioner on right now lol

  4. I have just popped in from Lily's Small Blog meet too and love your quilt. It is -20 degrees here this morning, but a beautiful day with bright blue skies and sunshine, the perfect day for photographing your quilt as long as it doesn't take too long :)

  5. Hi Karen,

  6. Hello! i've found your blog through Lilly's Quilts Small Blog Meet-up. Your quilt top is great, and I love how you photographed it with the light shining through :)

  7. Hi...
    I found you through Judy's "Design Wall Monday" link-up, and read back through for a few days, and saw your post about the need for a portable, temporary design wall, and thought you might be interested in the ones I bought a few years ago, when I just couldn't take it any more! LOL! mine are great- have traveled with them and have no complaints.

  8. What a beautiful quilt! I found you through Judy's blog, thanks for sharing!

  9. Love the top!! 13 degrees, brrrrrrr. I do love the shot of the sun shining through, very pretty!
