I had invited a Vet from the VA to come, with the intent of presenting her a QOV - but she was having a hard time deciding if it would be okay. Which - I totally understand, she has had a rough recovery!
I didn't tell them that we would be giving them QOV's - I had asked them to come and talk about their service.
But when I gave the first quilt out - look at the LOVE!!!
Wrapping themselves in all your hugs!

All of us, I tried to touch this up,but I have a feeling that I am not as good at this as I ought to be. There was a big glare from the cutting board - as I used the self timer. Wrangler man will fix it!
The table of quilts to bind, or that were bound. Harriet is a star binder!
Tops in progress - this is Jessicas corner!
Oh Look! - here is Jessica. Some day I will sew as quick as her.... someday.
I usually don;t show tops until they are quilted - but I just LOVE this panel with the soldier!
This is what I worked on - just needs borders now. The blocks were made by me, Joan and Barb in MI, I squared them up. Okay truthfully - I squared the ones I made up, then set them into the top. I like how it is going so far!
I am thinking a small blue border and a larger red border, or vice versa - any thoughts, hints, suggestions?
It was a fun Sunday. We got a lot done, and enjoyed ourselves. It was very cool to have to Soldiers come and see what we do! They were very sweet and so appreciative.
