My dear friend Pat R quilted these Quilts of Valor. She did an awesome job. I was quite impressed that she even found the time to quilt them, as she has been having some serious health issues lately.
This first quilt came a long way from home to go to a Colorado soldier. It came from St. Croix - and was made by Carolyn R. Sometimes I think it would be nice to be a quilt - they have an opportunity to go to some cool places!
This next quilt didn't have as far to go - but it is just as wonderful. It was made by Laurel in Ft Collins. Funny story - she quilted with my mom's sewing group 2 years ago making some Quilts of Valor, then she stopped going. I was doing a quilt show in Loveland -promoting QOV and she stopped by the booth. She says "well a while ago I sewed with this group in the mountains. Real nice lady ran it. "( good thing she said nice) I let her know that was my mom.
So she went back home and made this top.
Thanks Pat for all your quilting! I sure appreciate it. Have a good weekend - I am going to desperately try to finish clue 3 of the carolina christmas mystery quilt....
