Daniel's Quilt of Valor

The top is done.The color of the outer border is not quite as blue as it looks in the picture, but has enough blue that it goes will with the cool colors of the strips in the top. Because I wasn't clever I have to get a bit more fabric to finish the backing. If I was quilting it here I would exactly enough, but I'm sending it to my sister who is going to have it quilted so I need an extra 6 inches on the width. I think I can figure out how to piece the leftover fabric to make it wide enough, then off this goes to be quilted. I'm very happy with how it turned out. Not my usual colors, but I like it anyway.

I'm feeling motivated, so I'm going to see if I can finish a charity quilt for the guild (or maybe two) before our meeting the second Thursday of February.

That dark blue border sets it all in a frame and looks perfect. As for not having enough for the back, every quilt back I do is different depending on the scraps I have leftover from the front, this way it gets finished, and there isn't a strip of this or a square of this that goes int eh scrap bins (they are out of control, trying to use them up too) I know you will do something fabulous with it.

Mary, it's fabulous. I LOVE it. The inner border works so well with the outer border and the whole quilt. You amaze me, how you consistently crank out gorgeous quilts!
