Thanks for the show! Clue 2 done and love your directions! I am trying to collect more red and blue fabric so I can make more of veteran quilts as I mostly make comfort quilts for cancer patients. I am inspired by your continual shows, so I am going to make more!

You are an inspiration to other quilters when it comes to making QOVs! Whenever I make a QOV, I feel so much joy knowing how a QOV can mean a great deal to a veteran. There is something about being enveloped in the comfort of a quilt!

Alycia,
Love the quilts! Thanks for the QOV show this week.
Thanks to you and Cecily for working so diligently for our veterans. There are no words that can convey how grateful I am that you are such a positive face for those of us who sit home and quietly quilt for our heroes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
💜Barbara

PS: as soon as Thanksgiving is over I will get to your mystery QAL- We've had guests for two weeks straight celebrating my mother in Laws 90th birthday.

Thank you for sharing the Everyday Hero story as well as the regular Wed show. I'm in Baltimore this week and needed my QOV Fix! And, yes, thanks for running the QAL for Quilts 4 Military - I'm collecting the clues, to make it when I get home :)
