Colorado and Angel Quilt... and Finished Friday

 Happy Friday you all!!

Today's Finish is a quilt that was Pieced by Deb.... Deb showed our Whole QOV group how to make these cool blocks .... named  Colorado.... then she added some special blocks that she made - called Angel blocks and Created this top!



now - there is a background to the Angel blocks ( in the corners) Her Mom - was one of My first supporters in Quilts of Valor - She taught me how to do so much, and just knew all these little quilting secrets - and she was the best.  She presented a Quilt to one of our Veterans and he kept calling her, and the band of quilters... his angels.... and so! Deb made these angel Blocks to keep watch over Colorado.


    And I took photos in the mountains - because you all... what is Colorado known for???



I really enjoyed Quilting this one, and know that it will go to a Veteran who will love it!
