ALYOF - June goal complete!

My June ALYOF goal was to get Valor all ready to send off to its new owner, and I'm happy to say it's ready to go!  (Finishing this quilt was also a Quarter 2 Finish Along goal.)

OK, that's not quite true.  I ordered labels from Spoonflower, and once those arrive and I sew it on, it'll be ready to go.  But the hard parts - the quilt and "presentation case" are done, which means this is a usable quilt so I count it as done :)

Here's more photos:
Presentation case - basically a pillow case, made sausage-style.

Navy cuff, white on white accent strip and red body.

Rolled and ready to rock!
I started this quilt in February and it will be sent off in July - 5 months isn't too bad of a turn around time, but I hope the next one gets done in a little more timely manner.  And yes, that means I'd do another Quilt of Valor again in the future.  If you're interested in making a quilt, you can find more information here.

 Special thanks to Jodie at the Quilt Corner in Baton Rouge, LA for doing a beautiful job quilting Valor!

Linking up with the other June finishers and the Quarter 2 finishers.


  1. Congrats on your finish. Quilts of Valor is such a worthy cause. I know it will be well appreciated!

  2. I just made my very first pillow case, they are so easy eh? So wonderful you are making a quilt for Quilts of Valour and putting them in a presentation case to match- great idea!
