I was able to finish another quilt this week. It's been so busy 'round here, with spring school activities and everything else, that this finish feels especially good!
American Made Brand Solids, an assortment of scraps and a little bit of stash. It's very patriotic on purpose....it will be donated to the Quilts of Valor. I love how it turned out and I hope that the recipient doesn't mind some quilting that is less than perfect. I branched out with the quilting, and while it isn't perfect, I love what it adds to this quilt! I have lots of photos to share and I will just let them speak for themselves.
Now it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thanks for joining me for finish it up Friday!
I think the quilting looks wonderful and I love how bright and crisp the quilt is. I hope it brings a lot of cozy warmth to its new home.
This is a beautiful quilt for QOV. Would you share the pattern name so I could make one?
This is really beautiful.
I love your star quilt and the box quilting! The quilting is something I must do! Thanks for hosting.
Imperfect or not, I think it looks fabulous. Besides, I always think, "Perfect isn't flawless. Perfect is finished."
Love the Etcha-Sketch-y quality of your quilting. As for less than perfect, it looks excellent to me! Perfection isn't required to give comfort, and I'm sure this quilt will do just that!
Love the boxy quilting, Amanda Jean. Congrats on a fabulous finish! I remember when you started these blocks. This quilt will be very much appreciated.... I'm sure!
Another beautiful quilt and a great cause!
I love this! Someone will be very lucky to receive it. :)
This is a very beautiful quilt and the quilting looks great.
The quilt is beautiful and I love the quilting! It is a FMQ pattern that I have wanted to try.
Truly beautiful! I love how you quilted it also. The recipient will love it too
Its a great quilt and a very nice quilting!
Kind of you to give it away!
OMG, it is beautiful! The quilting is also amazing. Great finish!
What a gorgeous quilt Amanda. I know someone will just love it.
Brava! Very nice! You are the Best!!
That is one of the best Quilts of Valor I've seen. I'm hoping to make one soon, and once again, you've given me inspiration!
I think your quilting is perfect! Love what it adds to the quilt!
It's a beautiful quilt Amanda, and for a very special cause! Awesome finish!
this quilt is a stunner! I like how thick your binding is... what size do you cut it to? I use 2 1/4 and 2 1/2 strips but I think I like a more prominent binding...
Your QOV quilt is gorgeous! I'm sure whoever is lucky enough to receive it will be thrilled!
It's stunning!! Patriotic without being cheesy and altogether wonderful!
Love it! Especially the quilting :)
The quilt is fabulous. your choice for the quilting is wonderful.
I absolutely ADORE the way you placed the colors in this quilt ! And that quilting is STELLAR !(pun intended)
What a great quilt!! It certainly says "America" to me. I love those bright reds, and the spots on the back suit it perfectly.
I always love red, white and blue and this quilt is beautiful! I really like your quilting, it reminds me of etch-a-sketch!
It's wonderful! Everything about it is just great ;)
So pretty Amanda! Love it!
Love the quilting and the quilt. Great finish!
I love the quilting, the recipient will adore this quilt! Thank you for sending it to QOV! XX!
Your quilt is absolutely stunning! I love the quilting too!
Thank you for creating a QOV! I am putting the binding on a QOV with the same pattern...different color scheme.
I am a local QOV coordinator for Oklahoma and have become disheartened at the lack of QOV volunteers. I am the only one making QOV in a multi- county area and am always months behind. Your post has cheered me considerably.
That Quilt of Valor turned out beautifully! I really appreciate you taking time to make a Quilt for a Veteran. THank you
What a beautiful quilt for such an important cause! (With such perfect points! )
Lovely quilt with wonderful quilting!
Your quilt is beautiful and the quilting gives it a nice texture.
Very patriotic! I love how you quilted it.
Wow, what a great quilt! I love all of it: the colours, the pattern and especially the quilting. I wouldn't be able to part with it!
My first thought: it looks like a Fourth of July quilt
I love it and I think it is perfect!! ❤️❤️
Beautiful! And I love your quilting!

Pretty sure the recipient will adore the quilt and be thankful. Looks amazing.
Oh My Gosh that is gorgeous! Some day when I don't have to work full time I would love to make a quilt for Quilts of Valor.
Someone will love this.
