This Quilt of Valor was made from leftover backing and several other scraps. Although not every red or white are from the same prints, it was hard for my husband and FIL to spot the difference. This one is also a little longer and wider than the Heart Strings ones, but I am sure it will be perfect for someone to sleep under while healing. I love doing freehand swirls. I am sure that they are not perfect enough for some, but I think it just feels like I really enjoyed doing it. As I was binding this one, I had a couple cozy little naps of my own.
After being away for 31 years, we are finally home again. We are South Dakotans through and through, so this is were we want to spend our "retirement" years. My husband and I are getting ready to open a custom woodworking business with me being the paper pusher and the woodworker's apprentice. Along with that I am going to continue quilting and also work as a substitute teacher. Life is good!
