Quilt of Valor

Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I pieced and quilted this quilt on my home sewing machine. Most of the quilting is done with a walking foot and stitching in the ditch which is fairly easy for a beginner quilter. I also did a little meandering/stippling in some of the blocks. Just enough to test the waters of free motion quilting. I am hooked!

AMiller asked:
What is the finished size of this quilt? Is it still possible to find that magazine any where? My son and daughter and son-in-law are all Air force and I have a friend who is a Navy nurse who deserve one of these beautiful quilts.
JodyWms1 answered:
The finished size is 70 x 78. You should be able to order the back issue of the magazine from I have made 4 of these quilts with plans on making more. It is my favorite pattern for a QOV quilt.
