For the Brave ~ Two Quilt Kit Versions!

Patti Carey's Anniversary Quilt-Along Quilt, For the Brave, comes in two stunning options:

Quilt Kit 1 features the Eagle panel in the center.
Quilt Kit 2 has a block center.
I'm not sure how you will choose!
For the Brave ~ Panel Quilt Kit

Here's a closeup of the Panel Quilt.
For the Brave ~ Block Quilt Kit

Here's are details of the Block Quilt. Both quilts also use a panel with small squares, hearts and stars, cut as blocks (see below). There is no applique on either quilt, although they could be embellished.

What's Included in the Kits?

Our For the Brave quilt kit includes the Pattern and Fabrics to Complete the Top and Binding. We also stock coordinating Stonehenge wide backings. Both quilts meet the size requirements for the Quilts of Valor program.

The quilt along runs from March to December 2022.
It's very important to sign up for Patti Carey's Newsletter for this Quilt Along in order to receive extra tips and close up shots that aren't in the monthly video postings.

Featuring Raw-Edge Applique!

If you like applique, I think you'll like these designs from Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts. The pre-cut, pre-fused applique is slightly tacky, which lets you position and reposition your pieces just the way you want them. I know I've had fun making these! ~ Marsha
