Quilt of Valor

MooseQuilts
Tomorrow is the absolute last day to deliver my Quilt of Valor.  I delivered it today!  Oh yeah!!!
I had something else planned, but I thought it was due in May.  I enjoyed making the nine patches for my spring quilt, so I decided to make nine patches for the QOV.  The alternate block is a star batik that I got many years ago.  I have been saving it for just the right quilt.  It asked to be used on this quilt.  I hesitated after not cutting it for so many years, but I listened.  I’m glad I did.
It isn’t a fancy quilt, but I like it.  I quilted it in my Quilt of Valor pattern that has a Statue of Liberty, Liberty Bell, Eagle Head, and the words “Thank You” on it.  I like quilting red, white, and blue quilts in gold thread.  Here’s a close up of the eagle.

This quilt will be shown at HMQS in a Quilt of Valor Challenge. I didn’t make mine to win the challenge.  I made my quilt to support HMQS and Quilts of Valor.  I have worked with both organizations for many years.
If tomorrow is the deadline, does that mean I turned in my quilt a day early???
