Last week was one of the National Quilt of Valor Conferences. Ours was in Henderson, NV. You all know what? it is HOT there!! But we all came back inspired, and excited about all of the things that QOVF.org will be doing. And of course, all the awesome stories we already see!!
I hope that today's Quilt show inspires you, and that you think about making a Quilt of Valor. We have so many state coordinators and we all want to cover our Veterans ;-)
I had the privilege of meeting one of the Amelia Island Quilters ( from Florida!!) Over in Fort Collins!! We met at a quilt shop naturally!!
This is one of the creations she had - It was pieced by Gail N and quilted by Mary B
I just LOVE this quilting!!!
This one was pieced by Michal P - I don't remember seeing a quilter on the label ...
This one was from Fernandina Beach
And the last beauty she had was from Dell D. I love all the random, but not really random blocks in this quilt!!
The next two quilts were given to me at a guild meeting. If you all know me, I get a little scatterbrained with so many people in one room . So they were given to me by Jan. I am going to assume that she pieced and quilted them!!
This quilt was started by Jackie S in California. I believe she meant it to be a back to another quilt... but you all - the blocks were so cool. So Ms Joan here in CO took it, and added borders and some Friendship blocks ( they were signed by the American Legion members) and TA DAAAA..... A great Quilt of Valor
This lovely quilt was pieced by Linda W in Greeley. Linda is such a sweet heart! She helps at our sew days, and loves teaching the new quilters. She is so gentle in teaching them the 1/4 inch seams!!!
It was quilted by Alycia ( oops thats me!)
Last quilt for today... this is one of the Allegiance Mystery Quilts (pattern on free pattern page) It is made and quilted by Connie H - my go to girl!! She is a fabulous quilter, and wonderful friend... plus she never sleeps!!
