Quilt of Valor - quilted

Well, I certainly know why people like to have a longarm quilter do their quilts.... wowzers! Look... isn't this simply stunning quilting?
Quilting 1
Suzanne took the swirls from the horses tails and used that type of motif to quilt in a yellow thread that matches the golden yellow in the main panel.

It's just simply lovely! It brings the quilt to a whole new level...

I'll show you the whole quilt once it is bound. I hope to be able to get started on the binding on Sunday so I can send it off this month. :0)

On the Midsummer Night quilt front, I ordered 3 weights of silk, some paints and a book on Silk Painting from Dharma Trading Co. I'm going to read through the fabric preparation portion of the book so I can get the fabric ready for painting, then I'll forward everything to Nat to do the painting. He's almost finished with the color study so he'll be ready for it just about the time I get it there. I'm excited!

See you later, folks!

The quilting is really nice - such even stitching. Good thread choice.

I told you she would do a dynamite job!

Thanks for doing this for a female soldier. How about sending it to the NM facility--they have been so appreciative of our efforts?

Wow~~ I want a longarm soooo bad.

I can't wait to see what you do with the silks!
