I started quilting in 2008. This was my second quilt. It was a "mystery quilt" that I pieced from directions online for the Quilts of Valor Foundation. My friend Donna King did the quilting on it. I donated it to an Iraq veteran who lives in New Jersey. (the borders actually were straight but I hung it over some doors to take the photo, so the top border is folded under.
This one had a number of flying geese, and I had to do lots of "redos" to get it to come out right. I think Donna had to do a lot in the quilting to get some of my variations in block size not to "wave."
