QOV Inspirations!

What a day!! It was actually 93 as a high, thats about 15 degrees cooler than it has been, and it was welcome. I keep trying to remind mother nature that this is Colorado - not the Hot States!!!


I had the best morning taking pictures of these Beautiful Quilts of Valor - I sure hope you can find some inspirations among them, or just love the pure beauty!!


All of these quilts came from an awesome group out in California... and they were all quilted by Ron Olsen of New Mexico. Ron leaves a little *americana* on most quilts - so we searched for them!!


Made by Meredith V



Made by Marilyn - I LOVE the border!!!!

Made by Marilyn - oh heavens - I think this is a terry atkinson design - just because I secretly stalk her patterns, as I understand them well (grin)


This coin quilt was made by Linda L - yumm!!

Check out George W.... Love it!!

Made by Linda and Sandy. I have to tell you - this one really caught my eye. I LOVE lime green, and what a great look it gave this quilt!



This one was made by Alma W - Isn't it great? I think I have seen a similar free quilt pattern for it over at quiltville.com .... 

Don't you love the quilting in between the plates - and the plates themselves!!


And our last yummy quilt for today is made by Valerie E - Beautiful!!!

Again - aren't quilters wonderful? These lovely quilts are ready to go to our wounded warriors. I am so proud!!!  Thanks for looking today!!

Really makes me proud to be a quilter and full of joy for all the love everyone puts into these QOV quilts. I work for the Federal Government on an Air Force Base. We train a reserve unit which deployees individual reservists to sites 'in the sand box'. Many have come home injured, most with PTSD. All of these quilts are special as are the people who will receive these quilts.
