I like to talk!

I just really found this out - which is kind of funny - cuz you know I live in the middle of nowhere, with animals and kids, and I do a lot of listening! But recently I was invited to the Alpine Quilt guild in Golden/Genesee Colorado. I was invited to speak about Quilts of Valor and boy did I speak!

This guild was located in the most gorgeous place and of course I was too busy gawking to take any pictures. But I am ready to visit again. After I was done talking, one of the members came up and told me that she had wondered how long, and what kind of info would come from a Quilt of Valor talk - and was she surprised! Little did she know that I still had more words left LOL

Anyways - this guild has chosen Quilts of Valor as their Quilting project this year and they sent me home with a few finished ones.
Isn't this one great? Made by Cathy R and quilted by Sharon

This is the front of the wildlife QOV.....

And here is the back - a totally reversible quilt. And instead of a pillowcase it came in a really neat bag that was made by a Vietnam Vet.

The Quilt of Valor fabric lines are now arriving and one of the members works at Holly Quilt Cabin in Centennial and brought me this fabric with labels preprinted on it

Here is a close up of them

Thank you Alpine Quilt Guild for inviting me, and listening to me! I had a great time!

Great! I am glad you were able to share information about Quilts of Valor. I recently went through my old "Unlimited Possibilities" magazine . . . now called "Machine Quilting Unlimited." How nice to see your articles back in 2007. I reread them all and they were even more interesting now that I "know" who you are. Bless you my dear and keep up the good work!!
