Oh boy.... Buckle in and get ready for today's show.... LOTS of inspirations here!!
We had our monthly sew day on Sunday and oh man - everyone came. ( well almost) and it was crazy and sew much fun!! I enjoyed seeing every one again.... and my car was full!!!
So.... I haven't gotten all that we finished photographed, and not all these quilts came from that day - I just wanted you to know we weren't slacking ;-)
So.... this one was a block that we worked on at a sew day. I took the blocks ( free pattern on my patterns page - rectangle block) and put it into the top... and quilted it up.
If you remember - another way that we find Veterans that have been deployed is thru the website qovf.org We get these requests and then I try to get one of our awesome reps to present the QOV in person. My dear Sandy presented this one. It was so awesome. This Veteran could not get over the love that went into it, and that Sandy went to him to present it!
Here is another one. My wonderful Liz presented this quilt. She did a fantabulous job - and they were so thrilled.
Here i s another presentation. The whole family got involved in this photo. I think they were going to adopt Liz!!
And another one. Liz definitely stayed out of trouble traveling to do these for QOV. What a gem!
This is one I made. I blogged about it http://alyciaquilts.blogspot.com/2014/07/2-12-inch-strips-continued.html and was surprised that I still had strips left in my bin.... okay - I might have been saddened. I really wanted to empty something!
These Next 5 quilts are already at their forever homes. We had a request for a specific group of 30 veterans. My dear QOV peeps had us covered. Kathy and Sue were the Quilters for all of these tops. They also do embroidery at http://innovativecreate.com/
This top was made by the Red Hat Crafty Quilters. ( I think it is the pattern that was on kevinthequilters blog!!)
This is another one they made. LOVE the prints added in!!
This one was pieced by Margaret - Quilted by Kathy and Sue
Pieced by Wilma quilted by Kathy and Sue
And the last one - pieced by Candi and quilted by Kathy and Sue.... I sure appreciate all the work that went into these. And when I made a call for a quick 30 quilts - they jumped right in!!! LOVE it!!
The last two quilts are from Bonnie in Virginia - Bonnie has an awesome blog:
Plus she is a QM scrap squad quilter ;-) TOO cool!!
This one that Bonnie made is an atkinson designs pattern. It is all cowboys and western fabrics... so you know there was a lot of ohhing and ahhing here!!!
See you again real soon!
