More Flimsies, and a Couple of Pillowcases

 Here is the stack n whack Quilt of Valor top. I still need to quilt it and figure out how I'm going to do that...no idea right now. This is for a military person that my friend works with. She lets me know that she needs a top or I as if there is anyone who needs one and I make them. The folks she works with are mostly active duty and are struggling with PTSD, so I am happy to do this. Makes me feel a little more connected to the recipients, even though I don't know who they are. This quilt , this one and this one were all made for her to give away. Oh, so was this one (I almost forgot). The skull, irish chain and hunter quilt were specific requests for specific people, the others are more generic.

 I also finished a top that will go back to the group I quilt with on one Sunday a month.
It's from a pattern called 4 Layer Cake and has many different fabrics. It's not my favorite quilt, but it did go together very quickly. Only two of us showed up last time, so Linda cut this pattern out, and I told her I would be happy to sew it together for the next meeting. It will be sent off to a volunteer long-armer and then given to someone deserving.

I also made two pillowcases for presentation for these two quilts. Very simple, but they work. I really like the "sausage" method  so that there are no exposed seams. There are plenty of tutorials around, the only change I make is that I cut the contrast bit only 1-1/2" wide instead of 2-1/2". Easy to do and the results are great looking.
