Quilt of Valor Quilt Show

Oh Boy - 
I hope you are ready for these beauties.... again all of these Quilts of Valor are intended to comfort our combat wounded... you can always find more information about Quilts of Valor at http://www.qovf.org   -

The first four today were made by Judy of Thornton/Broomfield  ( ha ha gotcha Judy!!)


We have sew days in my area once a month, and she surprised us and came by!! I loved it!!


It was fun to have an impromptu Show and tell with these quilts!!  ( the one above was made with blocks she won at her guild)  The one below had a hard time leaving her home, her husband fell in love!!



This next one - I had a hard time letting go - I just LOVED how it turned out!! Of course I did not make it, but I sure love it!!


This one is one she saw on Moda Bake Shop - It turned out so great!! I think it was called Modern Vintage Pinwheel .. Judy????




These next two quilts were sent by Nancy C of New York!! I tell you - when I pulled this one out my breath caught.... it is just beautiful!!


Don't these colors remind you of the southwest? LOVE!!!



Dianne K - My neighbor to the South - made this one!! Again - I love it. Can you imagine all the happiness in our house when I get to photograph quilts???  My kids want to leave ( tee hee)



Mollie - the fearless leader of our HeartStrings Quilt Project ad the owner of MaryQuilts.com sent these my way. She quilted all of them.... and pieced this lattice top.


The Crumb quilt was pieced by Tish and quilted by Mollie


Pieced y Ann and quilted by Mollie


And last - pieced by Jackie and quilted by Mollie - These logs are just great - a big variety!



This one was pieced by Carolyn B of the Cane Cutter Quilters in Houma LA - Beautiful!!


And... the last four quilts in todays show came from Linda R in Nebraska. This one is a Bonnie Hunter pattern - wonderful for the Patriotics!!


These colors are so great - they are really vibrant and bold in person. A total girly quilt - I know it will be loved!!


Aren't string quilts cool? They can be made so many ways!!


And last but not least - a cool strippy quilt!!  Linda outdid herself!!



Hope you enjoyed seeing some of the Quilts of Valor!
They are so wonderful and so appreciated 
Thanks Quilters  - for making sure

Wow, what a wonderful quilt show...and the first four are the ones I brought to your group's sew day! Great timing since today is Adams Count Quilters' monthly morning guild meeting! The first and third quilts were made with blocks of month done by the guild members. I double checked and the last pattern is called Vintage Modern Pinwheels. I keep getting those words mixed up, smile. It's a wonderful privelege to create quilts for our service people.

They all look wonderful. You know you're doing something significant when so many want to help. If anyone is interested there are instructions for the Lattice, the HeartStrings, and the Strips and Strings Log Cabin quilts on my MaryQuilts.com site.
