Quilt of Valor show ( and presentations)

This has been a busy busy week!!! I hope you are ready... and have a cup of coffee!

First off - if you haven't already heard about our Patchworktimes Challenge .... here you go:

For every three finished ( quilted and bound) QOVs you send to Alycia, your name will go into a drawing.  On December 31, 2013, there will be three drawings, each to receive a $100 gift certificate from Fat Quarter Shop.

Some of those quilts are starting to come in....  There are already 3 people in the running.....

Here are three quilts from Karen A in OK - she is a new machine quilter - and I tell you - she is doing a great job!!!!

I LOVE the colors in this one, that solid in the center - ohh laa laa!!

Of course - this is the back o f the next one - but

And the front of it. Seriously great colors!
 And the last of the three from Karen.
These are great colors too!  Soft and comforting!

Then Three lovlies came from Adele D in LA - Did I ever mention how much I love to look at quilts?

I had to take a close up of these blocks - I think they are awesome
and of course I think Stash buster!!!

 Check out the bold Reds and Creams !!!

This next one has some great bold prints!
I think someday I should go shopping with Adele!

Thanks quilters - for joining in the PW Challenge!!!

And now.... what every quilter waits for.... to see some of their quilts with the recipients!

Notice something else in the picture?
The local Girl Scouts generously donated boxes of Girl Scout cookies for us to hand out to the soldiers.
And - NO he did not take two cases - we were just messing around.

Love the smiles right?

You all made these guys' day!!!
They were seriously happy!!  
And could totally feel the love!!

Thanks for taking time to stop by today!

I love seeing all the quilts you receive. Thank you to all the generous toppers and longarmers. Your work is awesome!

The smiles on the soldiers faces is enough motivation to make another QOV.

What a great post. Love seeing the quilts but very much loved seeing the happy, smiling faces of the soldiers.

I have a HUGE pile of blocks that I gather will be headed your way after MQX. Somebody will be making several quilts :-)
