QOV 2014 - the last one



 Ahhhh... the last Quilt of Valor show for this year.... I hope you have enjoyed all the variety that these Awesome Quilters make!! And I hope you have enjoyed seeing just a few of the smiling faces that are the Quilt recipients.  In Colorado alone we have presented over 800 quilts - closer to 900 - but I am tallying numbers for an exact total next week.   Nationwide - I know that number is huge for 2014 - all of us QOV'ers .....we deserve a pat on the back.... so here is your Pat *pat pat pat*  And THANK YOU!!!

It was a pleasure to participate this past year with Amador Valley Quilters. I also made a "Quilt of Honor" for a mother of a soldier who was killed when my son was injured. Individual stars were signed by members of his unit. A very moving experience.

Wonderful, as always. Happy New Year to you Alycia. The quilt show was great. So many pretty colorful ones and the smiles are heart warming to see. I thank you very much for all you do for QOVF, and wish you the very best for 2015.

Those are great! I make tops for American Hero Quilts, which is sort of a part of QOV these days - gets counted with them now, anyway. I've been doing that since 2005 - wow, almost ten years! It's amazing what beautiful quilts are made for the vets. TN quilters just did all the medal of honor winners at the Medal of Honor conference here a few months ago - awesome quilts!
