Quilts of Valour Donation FAL #2

Back in the fall of 2014 I was very lucky and won a fat quarter bundle from Sew Sister’s Blogathon Canada.  It was Northcott’s Stonehenge OH CANADA line.  Last year I made this quilt and donated it to Quilts of Valour Canada.

I used the leftover fabric to make another quilt to donate in 2016. This also gives me my second FAL finish for the first quarter (here is a link to my original FAL post)

I used a poppy motif in the centre of the squares and in the border.  I also did quite a bit of ruler work in the light border and between the squares.  The front is so busy that it is hard to see the quilting.  I like the design that it makes on the back.

I altered my label to add the Quilts of Valour logo.
