Q of V Appliqué Pattern

Q of V Appliqué Pattern

Pattern and instructions are now available for the appliqué maple leaves on the quilt completed by the Longarm quilters of Sparrow Studioz for Creative Stitches Quilts of Valour Bernina Challenge in September 2012. This quilt appeared on the cover of The Country Register, November/December 2012 issue; and in response to quilters who want to make a quilt of valour of their own like this for a veteran, I have published the pattern. This pattern includes full size templates of the appliqué design & instructions, including appliqué instructions the method used and references to the source of the original overall design of the quilt. Pattern price is $18.00, a portion of the proceeds from each sold will go to QoV Canada Society in support of the work they do providing quilts to wounded Canadian veterans no extra charge for sassy comments.
