Quilts of Colorado

All of these Quilts of Valor Hail from our home state of Colorado!! The first one comes from Yoder CO - From Ms. Kim of the Circle CR Designs. I love that name ! I am even giving you a close up of the quilting. It compliments the quilt so nicely. Thanks Kim!!

Next are three quilts from Alamosa CO. They came from Grey Goose Fabrics. Doesn't that sound like a great place to shop? Thanks quilters!!

This Disappearing 9 patch comes from the group that Paula the Quilter sews with. She even made a drawstring bag to carry it. Great idea - and I forgot to take a picture of it! ( )
Thanks Paulas Group!!

I do not know what this quilt is called - but it reminds me of a Burgoyne Surrounded quilt. I have always been drawn to those. This one comes from Co Sprgs - from Linda S. Linda - thank you - it is beautiful.

And Lastly - we have some Wheelchair quilts from Carolyn in Co Spgs. They are even cropped at the edges, so they don't get tied up in the wheels. The Chaplain has some special soldiers for these in mind - so we are not going to count them in our total count. The soldiers that will recieve these are in a different group - isn't that cool? Thanks Carolyn!

Love the idea of the wheelchair quilts with cropped corners. What are the recommended dimensions? I have checked various websites and found four different sizes.
