I am SO torn!!! I have wonderfully awesome gorgeous quilts to show.....
AND!!! I have wonderful soldier pictures to show.... what to do - what to do?????
How about a little of BOTH??
John - a FABULOUS machine quilter is in one of my groups, and his quilting group decided to contribute to Quilts of Valor. John is a featured quilter at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum too - he rocks!!
So here are three quilts that he Machine Quilted
The first is made by Joyce ( we love her too!)
This one was made by Sue and quilted by John. He quilted it just a little different - but Wow!!
And the last one that John quilted , was made by Patsy. All the patterns are the same - but wow!! The use of color really makes them individual right??
Okay - Now a few soldiers. These soldier are so appreciative of the quilts that we bring. They live in the Warrior Transition Battalion. This is the battalion that helps them with their injuries, getting rehab, and figuring out what the next step is - whether rejoining their battalion, or transitioning out. Tough decisions, and lots of medical treatment.
Some are their for a short time, and some have just arrived - both cases - they might not have their belongings with them quite yet. (Jessie C - this is one of yours....)
It is always fun to explain that the quilting patterns are - the apple core - for example. That one got a lot of giggles as I made up a story about Johhny Appleseed being a quilter....
Yah - they didn't buy it either... oh well... I guess I shall go look up the history of that one.... Sue? Is this quilt yours?
