So... Hope you will sit back and enjoy today's Quilt of Valor show!!
The next 5 quilts are from the Amelia Island Quilters in Florida... I met up with one of them in Fort Collins - of all places!! She was out visiting her former hometown and of course, we met at a quilt shop... It was SO much fun!!!
This one was an all Marine Quilt. And funny story .... the day that I received this quilt, I also received a request for a WWII Marine to be presented a Quilt of Valor.... I think it was destiny!
Isn't this the Sweetest Man? His wife was just so tickled to have us honor her Husband - and what a man! He served during WWII - he was a navigator. Oh my gosh - the stories! He was so sweet.
I sure appreciate all the support Quilts of Valor gets - and Amelia Island Quilters... Thank you!
This next one ( below) is from Crystal S in Denver. Crystal is one my longarmer friends - and she is awesome!! Isn't this a beautiful Quilt?
This one ( below) was pieced by the Columbine Quilt Guild and was quilted by my dear Ellen P in Denver. Someday I am going to quilt like Ellen.... seriously - you should see her talent!!
This next quilt was pieced by Deb. So Deb... she is amazing.. she takes orphan blocks and makes works of art out of them. I am so glad that she was drug along to one of our sew days...
It was quilted by Dawna - another of my longarmer Friends. Dawna is a Panto designer - She just opened an online store where you can find her cool pantos.... Dawna's Design Threads ( the pattern below is one of hers)
This lovely quilt was pieced by Jayette in MT - and it is gorgeous!! You all probably know how much I love plaids... Oh boy... this one went on my bucket list! ( I have one on Pinterest!)
The next two quilts are from Paula. They migh tnot look like Patriotic Quilts of Valor - but I am going to tell you - these will be LOVED!!! We have a womans group - that will be having a wonderful Women Veterans meeting. We wanted to honor them for their service, and we also wanted to honor them as women. These two quilts are a part of the group of feminine quilts that will be presented to them! I SO appreciate Paula for stepping up with these lovelies!!
