A QOV mini Quilt Show

Maybe you want a cup of coffee or hot chocolate ( or pepsi) for this one? I tell you - I just love looking at all these quilts. I haven't found one that I don't like yet!!!
`
This first Quilt of Valor comes from Kim B in Colorado. She and PJ are a team that can't be beat!
`



The nine patch quilt comes from Amy S in WI. She recently got a quilting machine and now is double trouble - she can piece and quilt!!! One of my boys wants to copy this one.
Amy can be found here!
`




`
This quilt comes from Vicki M of Morrison CO. I met her thru email, and just thought she was wonderful. Then I attended a Colorado Quilt Council ( our state guild) meeting and I heard the name Vicki M mentioned, so after the meeting I wandered around and found her! She was much sweeter in person!! What a small world.....



`
These next two quilts took the long boat to get here. Way back in January Jan M from... AUSTRALIA emailed me and said I am sending you two Quilts of Valor, but they may take a while. She knew what she was talking about. But how cool is that? To have two QOV's from such a distance away?


`
Plus they are string quilts, and those Quilt as you Go ones - I LOVE them!!
`
Thanks Jan for going to all that effort.








`
This QOV comes from Barbara W in NJ. She followed along with our Chunky Churndash Mystery a bit ago, and sent this one in. I have to say - I am just enarmored with this quilt pattern. Thanks Barbara!!


`
A bit ago I was invited out to a guild called Calico Quilters in Brush CO. They were the nicest group of ladies. And after the meeting they had a quick lunch and got down to business. Each member had brought in 5 inch squares of Patriotic Fabrics and they made 5 Dissappearing 9 Patch quilt tops that day. IMPRESSIVE. Shar and her friend Quilted them - and voila.....







`
Thanks Ladies!

































Remember when I told you a gal and her friend stopped by? I showed you what Susan had brought - we her friend Carolyn did not show up empty handed either!
`
She made these two Lovely quilts for Quilts of Valor as well.
`
I love how one friend hears about something, and they so quickly recruit other friends!!



Thanks Carolyn for these beautiful quilts.










And that concludes our Mini Quilt show for this week. I meant to do it yesterday - but it was Fathers Day. Hope you all had a great one.
