I have been with Quilts of Valor since 2005, ( shew!) Our first major project was making these Quilts with the kids in our fifth grade, and delivering them to the injured soldiers at Fort Carson, our Army Post. Since then it has taken on a life of its own, and we have covered soldiers in our state, through various locations, as well as Military at Landstuhl, Afghanistan and Iraq.
Two of the first quilts we finished.
I love questions - as I know what it is that we do, but I forget that others do not. And of course, I love to talk - go figure ;-)
Our very first QOV recipient
The first two Quilts in today's show come from Deb P. in Colorado - these were quilted by Dawna Sanders.
I forgot to ask her what quilting designs she used, but Dawna designs Panto's and they are lovely!
The Colors in this one are fabulous! I just love blues and greens together. It's very soothing. Again pieced by Deb and quilted by Dawna.
The HeartString Quilters are an amazing group of quilters. I am proud to be in there group. But Holy Cow - some of them are SO prolific. Mollie is the head task master - and we love her. This is one of the quilts they sent to me.
pattern For this. ... Love it!
Since I am in my plaid phase at the moment, I think my heart stopped when I pulled this one out of the box... seriously.... Is it not Scrumptious???
Another Yummy String quilt -
The Next quilt was made by Jill S at http://crazy4red.blogspot.com - But I wanted to show you her label first - I love it!! How cool is that - that this quilt is made in honor of other Veterans?
