And here is Colorado - I think there were NO slackers!!
In Greeley ( that's my group) we had about 35 Quilters show up - we even had the Local 4H make an appearance!! 6 kids and their adults showed up to sew too!
We Did QOV sew day Italian Style and made Lasagna Quilts, while the 4H'ers worked on assembling some of our block drive blocks into tops: want to see????
Here is a quilt in progress ( above)
And our first prize pack winner.She answered the toughest question of all
What is your favorite soda?
Vicki Welsh graciously donated 4 stash packs of her handdyes and !!! Oh goodness - were they coveted!!
Our first finished top of the day
She also won a prize pack!!
Our first person to finish step 1 - although pictured - is her whole quilt
But she won a stash pack too!
And the crazy group

Another stash pack winner in this photo too, on the right)
Total - we made 18 Quilt tops

A special Shout out To Northcott Fabrics too!
They helped us out with our Patriotic Fabric Supply
And WOW!! Their Patriotic Fabrics are Superb!!!!
Here are 2 of our 3 4-H teams
Mom and Sons and Their Quilt
And Mom and Daughters and their quilt!!!
It was fun to have them -
they didn't think we were TOO crazy!
Over on the Western edge of the State - 11 Quilters got together and stitched up these Beauties!
Looks to me like 10 quilts at least!
In the Southern Part we had the Fremont Victory Quilters stitching away, and in Buena Vista Linda was a piecing... 5 tops!!!..... and even in Boulder - I think they finished 1, and in Denver Cathy and her friends pieced 2 tops!!! - I think Colorado had a good day ;-)
I know Judy V was piecing, and many others who haven't bragged yet ( BUT THEY SHOULD)
So at least 36 Quilts of Valor got their start and/or Debut on Saturday!!!!
