Quilts of Valor 2014

Well Goodness... here it is almost 2:45 pm Colorado time, and we are finally settling down.  I got up early to post the show - and well, it appeared that a stolen truck was in an accident and two armed men were roaming the area....

Those of us with outbuildings were a little , shall we say, nervous?

Actually - we kinda still are - the texting network is going on - one was apprehended, the other was still at large......

So the best thing? Settle down and look at quilts - much more relaxing! And I know where all of these are!!!


This first quilt was Pieced by Kathy in CO and quilted by Janice in NH. It is really lovely!

This was was also pieced by Kathy and quilted by Janice. I believe these were both mystery quilts from MysteryQuilts4Military - a Yahoo group

And a Smile!! I love how some want to just wrap it around them everywhere ;-)

This one is from Cynthia B at Arapahoe County Quilters. I went and spoke to their group - wow what a HUGE guild!! but so friendly and nice. I took Little Bit with me and asked him to take a photo or two of me speaking.... did you know - not one of them came back without my mouth open, or my hands swinging... sheesh ;-)  Cheap Entertainment I am ;-)

Anyways Cynthia brought this one to me, and said - well I really had wanted to try this block.... and oh man!! I was glad she did - it is lovely!

Lois in CO teamed up with Glenda in CO and created this quilt. I LOVE it!!

Another smile. - This was another Yellow Brick Road style quilt. He loved the way all the fabrics moved ...

This is the Second QOV for this show that Lois and Glenda teamed up on. Look at the subtle difference the polka dot fabric makes.... PS - I have that fabric - I am so excited!!

This one was made by Liz M of Colorado and quilted by Jean J - I assume of CO as well, but I am not sure I asked ....

This is another top by Liz - and it was quilted by Shawnee. I love that she put words in the quilting!

This quilt was pieced by MaryAnn in Co and quilted by Beth L in CO..  Sorry about cutting the edge off of the quilt - it must have moved!

And the last quilt for today - was pieced by the COVA quilting club. This is an online academy - and Ms Jen runs the international quilting club. They decided in the 2012/2013 school to attempt a quilt and it was a success - so the kids wanted to do another one for this last school year. - IT! IS. AWESOME!
 They made a special label.....

And one of the students wrote a poem

And the back.... isnt' that such fun!! Kudos to Ms Jen and her wonderful students!!  Keep up the good work!

This was the COVA quilt from the last school year - Totally made this Veteran smile ;-)
That's all for today folks - I apologize for being so late.
