Aren't those great? a Few more packages came in - but , well, I didn't get home till really late last night and I left them on my sewing table.... but that's good - more inspirations for next week!
The first inspiration - a presentation. I am wandering around there some where - but I am hoping I got cut out ( tee hee) . We invited some recipients to one of our sew ins and it was awesome!!
Everyone got to be involved - and there was a standing ovation.
One of the coolest parts to me - was watching these veterans interact after the presentation.
So Quilt!! Inspirations!! The lovely quilt was made by Vicki Welsh
This is another one by Vicki!
Two things - this is a free pattern - it is called allegiance - the link is in my header.
Secondly - this is the back -
Vicki HAND DYED it!!

This summer I was invited to speak at the Araphoe County Quilters in Denver - they are SO awesome. They were a great guild and so fun - BUT!!! Then they decided to get involved!
Made by Linda S -
Arapahoe County Quilters
What an amazing guild!! Kathy - their guild president called and said - we had a sew day - we have a few things for you. And I met her, and tied my kids to the top of the car!
HOLEE COW - did they get to quilting!!
|Made by Arapahoe County Quilters|
I decided to take it one bag at a time - so you may have seen some of the quilts they already contributed !
The one above is called Uncle Sam ( appropriate!!)
It was made by Kay - but Kay didn't stop there!
She also made the one below.
It is called Patriotic Patchwork
I believe this one was also made by Kay - I made a note, I just can't read it!
I love this setting!!
The next quilt was made by Kay and it is called Stars and Bars
A long time ago I designed one and made a pdf copy of my pattern
It is not pretty - but here it is
And then we come to Ms Carolyn!!
She is in PA - and she works very hard on a farm with her kids
Yet she still found some time to make some Quilts of Valor
All Three of these ( the one above and the two below)
Came from Carolyn
Let's have one more smile to cap off today's show shall we?
I LOVE it when the families get involved !
PS - you have asked where the pattern for a whole quilt out of the blocks is?
