Quilt of Valour

This quilt is the North Star Quilt Guilds next Quilt of Valour that will be given to a wounded Canadian soldier. I feel this project is a wonderful way to let our soldiers know that we appreciate all they do and that they are in our thoughts. I offered to quilt all the QofV quilts for our guild free of charge as it is a project I want to support. The guild members have been making the leaf blocks for a few months now and they are a great way to use up your scraps. I haven't even made a dent in my scrap bin but if I keep digging into it each month it might eventually.
The panto is called Maple Syrup, it has a very Canadian feel so very appropriate for this project.


  1. What a wonderful job you have done with the quilting of this quilt. I am pleased and proud to have also had a part in its creation. I am sure the recipient is going to feel our gratitude and appreciation in it's warmth.

  2. Your longarm quilting skills shine through on this quilt and the recipient will feel the warmth of all quilters who contributed to its creation.

  3. What a wonderful job of piecing and quilting. It's just lovely and so Canadian. Is this a pattern that is supplied to the guild by QofV? I'd love to contribute to QofV by making a quilt like this one.
