Weekly Finish #8 and #9: Dr. Seuss and Quilt of Valor 2021


I have a couple small completed quilts to share this week.
This first one is a Warm Wishes Dr. Seuss quilt which is the second charity quilt from the pile of UFOs I posted about way back in February.

I used the same E2E alien/spaceman quilt design I used for the Heavenly Bodies charity quilt. The backing is a colorful crayon print with a red with white polka dot binding.


  The quilt measures 39" x 49" and it'll be donated to Quilts For Kids or Project Linus.



I am also happy to share this finished Quilt of Valor for my friend's husband that I posted about last month.


I quilted it with an allover E2E star quilting design that I downloaded for free from Urban Elementz.  This is my first panel quilt and I was worried the quilting design would detract from the beautiful eagle print.  I used a light blue thread and am happy to see that it blends in beautifully.


I used a patriotic print for the backing and also added a sleeve for use as a wall hanging.  It measures 42" x 57".


I finished it yesterday and this morning we met for breakfast and I was able to gift it to him.  He was very happy to receive it and said he will always treasure it.  To Joe, thank you for your service.


I'm linking up to the following parties.  Please visit them if you'd like to see more quilting goodness and see what others are doing:

Until next time ... be happy and keep on quilting!

  2. What a beautiful quilt for Joe, and it is heart-warming to see him holding it. I love that panel on the front. Your Dr. Seuss quilt is cute, especially with the crayon print backing.
