Finished Quilts

"Its springtime in the rockies", la la la la.... Okay - Not really. I know it is January - but it was 70 degrees yesterday. I opened windows. Its supposed to be 70 again today!! This is awesome. And I know, I am probably single-handedly jinxing it. We will get 17 batrillion feet of snow now. But I am going to enjoy this sunshine while it is here!

As you know - I have had a wonderful group of Longarmers volunteer to quilt some of these Quilt of Valor tops. And I am so appreciative. They have totally sped up the production of these quilts.

Today I am going to show you Three that Tammie in Maple Grove MN quilted. She owns Quilting Artisty.~
So the very top one comes from Barbara in Florida. Original Post

The Next one comes from the Livermore Quilters - from Barbara. She is a prolific quilter now. She had quilted before, now we have her addicted! And the Nine Patch quilt comes from Audrey - of the Livermore Quilters.

Tammy - Thank you for quilting these!

Last nite was my guild meeting. You should have seen me! I took a ton of quilts. Seriously - I think they weighed a ton! And my wonderful guild ladies took them home to bind. I think this is so cool how everyone is helping in any way they can. My son and I were talking about if it's even worth it to give $1 towards something, or should you wait until you have lots to give. He was thinking about the national debt ( big thoughs for a little kid) And I was so proud - I could use this project as a great example. If everyone waited till they had lots to give, we would have no quilts for any soldiers. But by giving what you can - look what we quilters have collectively amassed! My son, of course, said I used to many words - but he understood!

Well I'm sorry to say that Keith left for Florida today without you but it sounds like you're getting some FL weather there....it's 9 degrees here and dropping fast.

Thanks for continuing to share photos of all the quilts and I love seeing and hearing about the soldiers receiving them too.
