More Beautiful Quilts

It's Wednesday - and you know what that means.... Inspiration and Beauty!! It was cool enough here last night that I think I could actually stand a hot chocolate or a tea this morning.... but Dr Pepper is really my drink of choice..... tee hee




 First we start off with Three Lovely Quilts made by the Bingham Ladies Fellowship in Nebraska, and quilted by Jody M.  They work together as a group to make these and I think they did an awesome job!!!







This one was made by Denise in my Quilt Guild. It was a mystery quilt at the last retreat she went on... someday I am going to join them... isn't it lovely? 


I love how the quilting shows up on the back SO well!!


This quilt was made by the Pieceable Friends Quilt Guild and my QOV sew day... we made all the blocks a few months ago, and Sue took some home to put into a top... and as a Bonus!! She quilted it ( oh and Bound it!! - she rocks!!)


This quilt was pieced by Sue out of blocks made by Mary Jane. Mary Jane passed away last year, and her husband graciously donated her fabrics and blocks to be put to good use!




Check out the back!!! I love this quilt!!

Ros in Arizona sent me a great big box of Quilts of Valor - I tried really hard to get all the info down correctly - but you know... I am out of chocolate - so I can NOT be held accountable - Just kiddin' let me know if I get something wrong!!


This yummy string quilt was made by Nancy and Quilted by Ros!


This Disappearing 9 Patch was made by the AZ Huggy Bunch and quilted by Ros.


Another beauty by the AZ Huggy Bunch - I really like that name - they are quilters, but have a great way to give hugs!! Perfect!!



And the last one for today is made by Nancy and quilted by Ros. I am really loving the white center strings - I may have to make some like that!!



Hope you enjoyed today's Quilt show!! And I hope you keep coming back to see all the lovelies! Its fun to show them off - and to give you a glimpse of what our wonderful military is receiving.

Have not figured out my quilting frame situation yet, but I am sure having fun putting everything else in order in my studio. Soon I will get back to making some more Quilts of Valor.
