The Least I Could Do

I just have to put the borders on this quilt top and it will be ready to send to the Quilts of Valor Foundation. They will find a machine quilter to button it all up and then the finished quilt will make its way into the hands of a returned veteran. I’m happy and humbled to be able to make this quilt and I hope it will be useful to someone who has given so much.

I’m really pleased with the pattern, called Options from Maple Island Quilts. It’s not a symmetrical block so depending on how it is sewn together, a number of looks is possible. It was really hard for me to envision how it would look as I was working on it but when I laid down the blocks in this way, the pinwheel in red fabric was really striking. The design on the red has great movement and the lighting in this picture really accentuates it. I’m thinking of using this pattern with some of this fabric when I get around to a new quilt for our bed. I think it will be fabulous. Can’t wait…
