February Block Drive

It is March 1st!!! HOW did that happen?  

Oh well - the February QOV block drive is starting to wind down - but Lawsy Mercy!! The packages are arriving!!! I LOVE it.. I am in awe, in amazement and overwhelmed all at the SAME time!!  

I love the love that is coming in from these beautiful blocks. Today I photographed a lot of them and will share them here. Guess how many we have so far?  Or maybe I shouldn't say? I still have packages to open.... and you have until March 8th to get them here. 

The Drawing will be on March 10th  
( that's a Sunday so there is a great chance for ALL packages to be here) .....

These 5 are from Joan in Colorado.... Love the light blue in there!!

There are 55 blocks here people !!  55!!! 
They come from Lisa L in Georgia -
she was MOTIVATED!!!

These 10 come from Cathy in IA
Check out the fussy cut stars!! Awesome!!

These 10 come from Diane in CO
LOVE that they made it thru the snow and the sleet!!!

Oh look - a Scrappy Trips block!! This once came from Margaret in NY 
it will be added to the others we are working on!! I so love it!
Check out the little card - isn't that cute?

These 5 come from Sandi in Colorado

These 5 come from Laura in California
Laura is a really special friend - she is part of the reason I learned to quilt.....

 These 10 come from Pat in Alpin WY 
Wrangler Man is from Wyoming - so when this package came in he was really sure it was for him - 
he didn't think that anyone in Wyoming would really send something to me - he is the native -
tee hee....  

These 5 come from Jill in Illinois 

These 5 are from Margaret in VA
Her husband is a Veteran - and she was thinking about getting involved.... look at her go!!

And the last 5 in this post are from Judy B in TX

 Before I left for Texas we had a QOV sew day 
and we put together one top already with the blocks that have come in...

Wow! Look at all of those great blocks! You are awesome for offering such a great way for so many to honor our veterans with such beautiful quilts, and that's just one of the many reasons you're awesome! I'm in Texas now too. Wish I could have wrangled a way to be here last week when you were. Austin's just a short trot from here. I kind of envy your horses. :)

Beautiful blocks!

Cathy said...

Glad they made it! They were fun and easy to make.

Terri said...

Wonderful blocks and I like your shameless horses. LOL

I am so happy this is becoming such a successful block drive!

I have started some in plaid. Not sure when I can get them in the mail though. Is the block deadline truly a deadline or can they come in with the 2 QOV tops we're working on.

TLC said...

Great blocks! Seeing your blog post and Kevin's reminded me that I needed to make some. I have 10 + one? Please let me know where to send the blocks.

Jill said...

How fun to see the variety of blocks that are coming in. The first top looks great!

Judy said...

Sorry I didn't get to meet you at Quilt Com. You've collected a nice variety of blocks. Kudos to you and to all the contributors!
