So far I haven’t had any complaints about the weather – it’s been colder than I’m used to but I’ve been bundling up and still get out and do some walking, visit the bookstore, go to lunch but it looks like some serious cold is heading this way!
There was a post on the HeartStrings group today about Quilts of Valor. I’ve seen lots of messages on and off about that group but hadn’t really paid close attention because although I do lots of charity quilts I had the organizations I donate to all lined up. Today I went and took a look at the article posted and then the Quilts of Valor website and decided it’s time I make a QOV quilt .
So with my current obsession for string quilts – I decided to play around in EQ6. I liked the first two OK but the stars didn’t really pop. I tried some red/white strings too but that looked too busy. I like the white star in the middle the best but I may still play around some before I decide which one to use. I’m not sure what happened to the reds in the first picture but I’m not going to go back and redo it – use your imagination!
