Beautiful Quilts

Some days I am the luckiest girl in the world!! The most beautiful quilts come thru here to be given to soldiers - and lucky me - I get to see them up close first!!!

This quilt is the Veterans Day Rail quilt from our sew a long - it was made by Rebecca in Maine!! Rebecca it is so beautiful!
The pattern can be found

This beauty was made by Alberta in IL - Click on the picture to see it up close - it is a work of art!! Thank you Alberta!

Judy V in Broomfield started quilting with the kiddos at Mountain View hard of hearing school. This was one of the quilts they made. She provided fabric pieces and the kids got to make a design, then the design was appliqued down. These two quilts are just gorgeous.

This is a close up of one of the blocks - cool huh?

Judy also participated in the Veterans Quilt a Long - and this is hers. Oh - and she quilted all three of these Quilts of Valor.

Sewists - you all are amazing. I appreciate your time and your abilities being used to cover our servicemen and women. And they so appreciate the hugs that are made into quilts!!

Take Care!

I love Rebecca's quilts and get to see them in person too when I go up to Maine for the HeartStrings sew-ins.

I love the idea of the children making designs with the pre cut shapes, something I could do with my girl scouts!!!
